The European Market in US Shares

Both the Turquoise and NYSE Arca Europe MTFs have announced new markets in US shares during European hours. Will these ventures work when attempts in the past have been unsuccessful?

Well perhaps. But liquidity on the MTFs could be thin until New York opens.

A further question is whether the clearing service offered by EuroCCP is enough for traders to regard the European MTFs as part of the same trading space as the US. Or is it necessary to go a step further and make European trading fully fungible with US trading through a single clearing process?
