The creation of a single European financial market has been pursued vigorously through a number of harmonisation initiatives by European lawmakers and by some of the cross-border alliances between European stock exchanges. The very ambitious plans for harmonisation in the OMX and the Euronext alliances are examined. Even though many areas have successfully been harmonised, it is documented that important aspects of harmonisation have not been achieved and the reasons for this are analysed. Finally, it is examined how the fact that the alliances in 2007 became part of the transatlantic alliances NASDAQ OMX and NYSE Euronext may change the harmonisation strategy in future.
