U.S. Equities Market in Transition: Evaluating Leading Exchanges

As of Q2 2006, the NYSE Group and NASDAQ collectively account for 78% of the entire U.S. equities market. By Aite Group’s estimation, more than 20 other execution venues are battling for the remaining 22% of the U.S. equities market share.
