IntercontinentalExchange—an internet-based exchange that handles futures, over-the-counter energy securities, and derivatives—is in talks with the New York Stock Exchange over a possible merger, according to WSJ sources. The talks follow a failed attempt by ICE and NASDAQ to mount a takeover of NYSE Euronext.
