Is a Robin Hood tax viable?


I've heard a lot about the Robin Hood tax, which is a less than 1% tax on financial transactions. It is meant to raise revenue and to discourage unnecessarily risky trading. However, I've also had my attention drawn to the failed financial transaction tax in Sweden which makes me wonder if it is viable. Would it need to be international in character to work?
