Agency Information Collection Activities: Emergency Consideration Request, 62156-62157 [05-21492]

Download as PDF 62156 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 208 / Friday, October 28, 2005 / Notices meeting other requirements, pass an examination prescribed by the Exchange. The volume and speed of the market has increased dramatically since CTs and RCMMs were first created, and significant changes have occurred with respect to market dynamics. The Exchange believes that these changes coupled with the Exchange’s move to a Hybrid Market makes this review timely and appropriate. Currently there are only 11 active RCMMs, and the sole CT has not been active for several years. As part of this review, the Exchange will consider the diminished impact and usage of RCMMs and the effective nonusage of the CT status, the resources required to surveil their trading, and the significant market timing and informational advantage that they enjoy. The Exchange will also examine any regulatory requirements needed to increase market maker liquidity obligations. The Exchange will issue an Information Memo announcing the moratorium. The Exchange notes that the proposed moratorium will not impact those members currently registered as CTs and RCMMs. Accordingly, during the period that the moratorium is in place, NYSE Rules 110 and 111 and NYSE Rule 107A will continue to govern the actions of current CTs and RCMMs, respectively.8 The Exchange will promptly file for approval with the Commission any changes to the existing rules that the Exchange determines are warranted upon completion of its review. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the basis under the Act for this proposed rule change is the requirement under Section 6(b)(5) 9 that an Exchange have rules that are designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, settling, processing information with respect to, and facilitating transactions in securities, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose 8 Telephone conversation between Donald Siemer, Director, Market Surveillance, NYSE and Ronesha Butler, Special Counsel, and Sara Gillis, Attorney, Division of Market Regulation, Commission on October 6, 2005. 9 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5). VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:15 Oct 27, 2005 Jkt 208001 any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange has neither solicited nor received written comments on the proposed rule change. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the proposed rule change: (i) Does not significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) does not impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) does not become operative for 30 days after the date of the filing, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 10 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) thereunder.11 At any time within 60 days of the filing of such proposed rule change, the Commission may summarily abrogate such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. IV. Solicitation of Comments Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods: Commission process and review your comments more efficiently, please use only one method. The Commission will post all comments on the Commission’s Internet Web site (http://www.sec.gov/ rules/sro.shtml). Copies of the submission, all subsequent amendments, all written statements with respect to the proposed rule change that are filed with the Commission, and all written communications relating to the proposed rule change between the Commission and any person, other than those that may be withheld from the public in accordance with the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 552, will be available for inspection and copying in the Commission’s Public Reference Room. Copies of the filing also will be available for inspection and copying at the principal office of the Exchange.
