As of December 2011, the Exchange had a market capitalisation of US$3.266 trillion (short scale), making it the fourth-largest stock exchange in the world by this measurement (and the largest in Europe). The Exchange was founded in 1801 and its current premises are situated in Paternoster Square close to St Paul's Cathedral in the City of London. The Exchange is part of the London Stock Exchange Group.
trading sessions on the main orderbook (SETS) are from 08:00 to 16:30
every day of the week except Saturdays, Sundays and holidays declared by
the exchange in advance. The detailed schedule is as follows:
Sustainable energy policies that have force are needed to maintain stable markets. Politicians pandering to the public cry for cleaner air, are only paying lip service to such demands. When in reality, clear direction is needed if they expect industry to part with high profits from dirty coal.
Nearly 50 per cent of the London Stock Exchange is now in the hands of two rival Gulf states battling to be their region’s leader in global exchange consolidation.
Qatar Investment Authority and Borse Dubai now own 48 per cent of the LSE following a complex series of deals in which ownership of Europe’s exchanges is being realigned.
Borse Dubai secured 28 per cent of the LSE as part of a wider deal with the US-based Nasdaq designed to settle their long-running battle for control of the Nordic exchanges and telecommunications operator OMX. The Dubai group bought most of Nasdaq’s 31 per cent stake in the LSE for £14.40 a share in cash. In return, it will take a 19.9 per cent stake on the combined Nasdaq/OMX group and receive cash.
However, the move enraged the Qatar Investment Authority, which until Tuesday night believed it was close to clinching a deal to buy much of the LSE stake for itself.
It responded on Thursday by buying nearly 20 per cent of the LSE for itself, sparking expectations of a bidding war for the exchange. LSE on Thursday welcomed the Qatari move because it sees QIA as a passive investor.

Meanwhile, the QIA also bought nearly 10 per cent of OMX, a move widely interpreted as a sign it, too, will make a competing offer for the Stockholm-based group. It also issued a statement calling on OMX shareholders to do nothing in response to the offer from Borse Dubai.
LSE shares soared on Thursday, closing £2.34 higher at £16.87.
Qatar bought the stakes held by two hedge funds instrumental in seeing off a hostile bid for the LSE by Nasdaq last year, believing that the £12.43 price it offered was too low.
However, before official word of the deal was published, there were signs that it might face political opposition in the US. Senator Charles Schumer, chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, said: “This deal raises serious questions . . . Those questions will include – should we allow foreign governments to take over our financial exchanges and how much control and influence should those foreign governments have?”
President George W. Bush on Thursday said the proposed investment by state-controlled Borse Dubai in the US exchange would face a national security review.
