Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Act),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on June 1, 2006, the International Securities Exchange, Inc.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The ISE is proposing to increase the threshold average daily volume (ADV) levels for the reduction and waiver of execution fees and the waiver of comparison fees with respect to trading options on the Nasdaq 100 Index Tracking Stock (QQQQ) and transactions executed in the Exchange’s Facilitation Mechanism. The text of the proposed rule change, as amended, is available on the ISE’s Web site (http://www.iseoptions.com/ legal/proposedlrulelchanges.asp), at the principal office of the ISE, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change BILLING CODE 8010–01–M 41 17 designated this proposal as one establishing or changing a due, fee, or other charge imposed by the ISE under Section 19(b)(3)(A)(ii) of the Act,4 and Rule 19b–4(f)(2) thereunder,5 which renders the proposal effective upon filing with the Commission. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change, as amended, from interested persons. In its filing with the Commission, the ISE included statements concerning the purpose of, and basis for, the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The ISE has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The purpose of this proposed rule change is to increase the threshold ADV levels for the reduction and waiver of execution fees and the waiver of comparison fees in the Exchange’s Schedule of Fees for (i) trading options in the QQQQ and (ii) transactions executed through the Exchange’s Facilitation Mechanism. In November 2003, on a pilot basis, the Exchange clarifying changes to the purpose section of the filing. The correction to Exhibit 5 and the clarifications to the purpose section of the original filing do not affect the fees covered by this filing. 4 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(ii). 5 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(2). PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 36575 adopted a reduction and a waiver of execution fees and a waiver of comparison fees for QQQQ options.6 In September 2004, again on a pilot basis, the Exchange adopted a similar reduction and a waiver of execution fees and a waiver of comparison fees on transactions executed through the Exchange’s Facilitation Mechanism.7 Discount on QQQQ Execution and Comparison Fees Under the current QQQQ pilot program, when a member’s monthly ADV in QQQQ options reaches 8,000 contracts, the member’s execution fee for the next 2,000 contracts is reduced by $0.10 per contract.8 Further, when a member’s monthly ADV in QQQQ options reaches 10,000 contracts, the Exchange waives the entire execution fee and the comparison fee for each QQQQ option contract traded thereafter. The Exchange states that its volume in QQQQ options traded has increased as a result of this pilot program. As a result, ISE now proposes to increase the threshold ADV levels at which the fee reduction and waiver for QQQQ options traded apply, such that the $0.10 per contract fee reduction shall apply for the next 2,000 contracts when a member’s monthly ADV in QQQQ options reaches 10,000 contracts. Further, when a member’s monthly ADV reaches 12,000 contracts, the Exchange will waive the entire execution fee and the comparison fee for each QQQQ option contract traded thereafter. Discount on Facilitation Mechanism Fees With respect to the Exchange’s Facilitation Mechanism, the structure of 6 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 49147 (January 29, 2004), 69 FR 5629 (February 5, 2004).

The Facilitation Mechanism is a process by which Electronic Access Members facilitate block-size orders. Options traded in the Facilitation Mechanism are treated as Firm Proprietary orders and, as such, are subject to an execution and comparison fee of $0.15 and $0.03 per contract per side, respectively. 8 This execution fee and any reduction or waiver thereof is applicable to Firm Proprietary orders and ISE Market Maker orders. For ISE Market Maker orders, the execution fee is currently between $0.21 and $0.12 per contract side, depending on the Exchange Average Daily Volume, and the comparison fee is currently $0.03 per contract per side.

That is, when a member’s monthly ADV in the Facilitation Mechanism reached 8,000 contracts, the member’s facilitation execution fee for the next 2,000 contracts transacted in the Facilitation Mechanism is reduced by $0.10 per contract.9 Further, when a member’s monthly ADV in the Facilitation Mechanism reaches 10,000 contracts, the Exchange waives the entire facilitation execution fee and the comparison fee for each contract transacted in the Facilitation Mechanism thereafter. The Exchange believes that the current pilot program has also encouraged members to use the Facilitation Mechanism, illustrated by its increased volume. As such, the Exchange now also proposes to increase the threshold ADV levels at which the fee reduction and waiver for options traded in the Facilitation Mechanism apply, such that the $0.10 per contract fee reduction shall apply for the next 5,000 contracts when a member’s monthly ADV in the Facilitation Mechanism reaches 15,000 contracts. Further, when a member’s monthly ADV reaches 20,000 contracts, the Exchange will waive the entire execution fee and the comparison fee for each option contract traded in the Facilitation Mechanism thereafter. The Exchange believes that the proposed increases of the threshold levels will allow it to maintain its competitiveness in trading QQQQ options and encourage continued use by members of the Facilitation Mechanism. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change, as amended, is consistent with Section 6(b)(4) of the Act,10 which requires that an exchange have an equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and other charges among its members and other persons using its facilities. In particular, these fees would extend current reductions and waivers. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES 9 This execution fee and any reduction or waiver thereof is applicable only to Firm Proprietary orders.

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of Substance 
of the Proposed Rule Change

    The ISE is proposing to increase the threshold average daily volume 
(ADV) levels for the reduction and waiver of execution fees and the 
waiver of comparison fees with respect to trading options on the Nasdaq 
100 Index Tracking Stock[reg] (QQQQ) and transactions executed in the 
Exchange's Facilitation Mechanism.
    The text of the proposed rule change, as amended, is available on 
the ISE's Web site (http://www.iseoptions.com/legal/proposed_rule_
changes.asp), at the principal office of the ISE, and at the 
Commission's Public Reference Room.

II. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

    In its filing with the Commission, the ISE included statements 
concerning the purpose of, and basis for, the proposed rule change and 
discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The 
text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in 
Item IV below. The ISE has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, 
B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements.

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    The purpose of this proposed rule change is to increase the 
threshold ADV levels for the reduction and waiver of execution fees and 
the waiver of comparison fees in the Exchange's Schedule of Fees for 
(i) trading options in the QQQQ and (ii) transactions executed through 
the Exchange's Facilitation Mechanism. In November 2003, on a pilot 
basis, the Exchange adopted a reduction and a waiver of execution fees 
and a waiver of comparison fees for QQQQ options.\6\ In September 2004, 
again on a pilot basis, the Exchange adopted a similar reduction and a 
waiver of execution fees and a waiver of comparison fees on 
transactions executed through the Exchange's Facilitation Mechanism.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 49147 (January 29, 
2004), 69 FR 5629 (February 5, 2004). See also Securities Exchange 
Act Release Nos. 49853 (June 14, 2004), 69 FR 35087 (June 23, 2004) 
(extending the pilot program until November 30, 2004); 50900 
(December 21, 2004), 69 FR 78075 (December 29, 2004) (extending the 
pilot program until November 30, 2005); and 52934 (December 9, 
2005), 70 FR 74859 (December 16, 2005) (extending the pilot program 
until November 30, 2006).
    \7\ See Securities Exchange Act Release Nos. 50658 (November 12, 
2004), 69 FR 67768 (November 19, 2004); and 52934, supra note 6 
(extending the pilot program until November 30, 2006). The 
Facilitation Mechanism is a process by which Electronic Access 
Members facilitate block-size orders. Options traded in the 
Facilitation Mechanism are treated as Firm Proprietary orders and, 
as such, are subject to an execution and comparison fee of $0.15 and 
$0.03 per contract per side, respectively.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Discount on QQQQ Execution and Comparison Fees
    Under the current QQQQ pilot program, when a member's monthly ADV 
in QQQQ options reaches 8,000 contracts, the member's execution fee for 
the next 2,000 contracts is reduced by $0.10 per contract.\8\ Further, 
when a member's monthly ADV in QQQQ options reaches 10,000 contracts, 
the Exchange waives the entire execution fee and the comparison fee for 
each QQQQ option contract traded thereafter. The Exchange states that 
its volume in QQQQ options traded has increased as a result of this 
pilot program. As a result, ISE now proposes to increase the threshold 
ADV levels at which the fee reduction and waiver for QQQQ options 
traded apply, such that the $0.10 per contract fee reduction shall 
apply for the next 2,000 contracts when a member's monthly ADV in QQQQ 
options reaches 10,000 contracts. Further, when a member's monthly ADV 
reaches 12,000 contracts, the Exchange will waive the entire execution 
fee and the comparison fee for each QQQQ option contract traded 
thereafter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ This execution fee and any reduction or waiver thereof is 
applicable to Firm Proprietary orders and ISE Market Maker orders. 
For ISE Market Maker orders, the execution fee is currently between 
$0.21 and $0.12 per contract side, depending on the Exchange Average 
Daily Volume, and the comparison fee is currently $0.03 per contract 
per side.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Discount on Facilitation Mechanism Fees
    With respect to the Exchange's Facilitation Mechanism, the 
structure of

[[Page 36576]]

the reduction and waiver of the execution fee for the Facilitation 
Mechanism (``facilitation execution fee'') and the waiver of the 
comparison fee are similar to the structure of the reduction and waiver 
of the QQQQ execution fee and the waiver of the comparison fee noted 
above. That is, when a member's monthly ADV in the Facilitation 
Mechanism reached 8,000 contracts, the member's facilitation execution 
fee for the next 2,000 contracts transacted in the Facilitation 
Mechanism is reduced by $0.10 per contract.\9\ Further, when a member's 
monthly ADV in the Facilitation Mechanism reaches 10,000 contracts, the 
Exchange waives the entire facilitation execution fee and the 
comparison fee for each contract transacted in the Facilitation 
Mechanism thereafter. The Exchange believes that the current pilot 
program has also encouraged members to use the Facilitation Mechanism, 
illustrated by its increased volume. As such, the Exchange now also 
proposes to increase the threshold ADV levels at which the fee 
reduction and waiver for options traded in the Facilitation Mechanism 
apply, such that the $0.10 per contract fee reduction shall apply for 
the next 5,000 contracts when a member's monthly ADV in the 
Facilitation Mechanism reaches 15,000 contracts. Further, when a 
member's monthly ADV reaches 20,000 contracts, the Exchange will waive 
the entire execution fee and the comparison fee for each option 
contract traded in the Facilitation Mechanism thereafter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ This execution fee and any reduction or waiver thereof is 
applicable only to Firm Proprietary orders. See supra note 7.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange believes that the proposed increases of the threshold 
levels will allow it to maintain its competitiveness in trading QQQQ 
options and encourage continued use by members of the Facilitation 
Mechanism.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change, as amended, is 
consistent with Section 6(b)(4) of the Act,\10\ which requires that an 
exchange have an equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and 
other charges among its members and other persons using its facilities. 
In particular, these fees would extend current reductions and waivers.

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change does not impose 
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 not solicited, and does not intend to solicit, 
comments on this proposed rule change. The Exchange has not received 
any unsolicited written comments from members or other interested 
parties.

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    The foregoing rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 
19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \11\ and Rule 19b-4(f)(2) \12\ thereunder 
because it changes a fee imposed by the Exchange. At any time within 60 
days of the filing of such amended 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.\13\

purposes of calculating the 60-day period within which the 
Commission may summarily abrograte the proposed rule change under 
Section 19(b)(3)(C) of the Act, the Commission considers the period 
to commence on June 15, 2006, the date on which the ISE submitted 
Amendment No. 1 See 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(C).
