On December 30, 2005, the Chicago Board Options Exchange, Incorporated (‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘CBOE’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) a proposed rule change pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 to make permanent the pilot program in CBOE Rule 6.13 relating to access to the Exchange’s automatic execution system. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on March 6, 2006.3 The Commission received no comments on 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 53377 (February 27, 2006), 71 FR 11250. 2 17 PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the proposal. This order approves the proposed rule change. The pilot program the Exchange seeks to make permanent was initiated in July 2004, was subsequently extended twice, and is currently scheduled to expire on October 12, 2006.4 Under the pilot program, pursuant to CBOE Rule 6.13(b)(i)(C)(iii), orders from market makers and specialists on an options exchange (‘‘options Market Makers’’) and stock exchange specialists,5 with respect to their specialty securities, are eligible for automatic execution through the Exchange’s Hybrid Trading System (‘‘Hybrid’’), subject to a 15-second limitation 6 on orders on the same side of the market in an options class for an account or accounts of the same beneficial owner. The Exchange believes that the pilot program has been successful and has helped to contribute to the maintenance of efficient markets and to attract volume to the Exchange. After careful consideration, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of Section 6 of the Act 7 and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to a national securities exchange.8 In particular, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,9 which requires, among other things, that the rules of an exchange be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release Nos. 50005 (July 12, 2004), 69 FR 43032 (July 19, 2004) (approving the pilot program); 51030 (January 12, 2005), 70 FR 3404 (January 24, 2005) (extending the pilot program until October 12, 2005); and 52494 (September 22, 2005), 70 FR 56943 (September 29, 2005) (extending the pilot program until October 12, 2006). 5 By its terms, CBOE Rule 6.13(b)(i)(C)(iii) applies to orders eligible for submission pursuant to CBOE Rule 6.13(b)(i)(C)(ii), which relates to options Market Makers and certain stock exchange specialists. 6 As allowed under CBOE Rule 6.13(b)(i)(C)(iii), the Exchange’s floor procedure committees determined to shorten to five seconds (from 15 seconds) the period required between entry of multiple market maker orders (including non-CBOE market maker orders) on the same side of the market in an option class for an account or accounts of the same beneficial owner using Hybrid. This change went into effect on July 18, 2005 and was announced to the Exchange’s membership via Regulatory Circular RG05–61. The Exchange clarified that such reduction in the time period to five seconds applies to all of the market participants subject to the pilot program under CBOE Rule 6.13(b)(i)(C)(iii).
