The Exchange provided the Commission with written notice of its intent to file this proposed rule change at least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule change. In addition, the Exchange has requested that the Commission waive the 30-day operative delay to allow the Exchange to utilize the U4 and U5 Forms without any undue delay.
