In the event of a EU financial transaction tax I think you will find that Switzerland immediately becomes the trading hub of Europe. I don't say this flippantly. I believe most if not all European exchanges already have in place a "disaster plan" similar to this.

I believe the same applies in the US. The exchanges would move off shore.
