Self-Regulatory Organizations; NYSE Arca, Inc.; Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of Proposed Rule Change Relating to NYSE Arca Marketplace Trading Sessions, 4761-4762 [E7-1593]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 21 / Thursday, February 1, 2007 / Notices Although the Commission supports efforts to implement a uniform, industry-wide quote mitigation plan, it does not believe such efforts preclude individual exchanges from initiating their own quote mitigation strategies. The Exchange stated its belief that, ‘‘by not burdening the marketplace with excessive quotes, in series that have proven to have little or no investor interest, the Exchange will have the ability to supply additional quoting activity where most needed, thereby creating liquidity and a more competitive marketplace, which in turn should provide increased opportunities for all investors.’’ 12 In addition, the Exchange clarified that it will continue to collect and process quotes from Exchange Market Makers and will publish a quote upon a trade at another market or upon receipt of an order in that series. The Commission believes that NYSE Arca’s proposed quote mitigation strategy is consistent with the Act and that it is unlikely to lead to confusion among market participants. In this regard, the Commission notes that Exchanges do not currently quote the identical series and classes of options. Furthermore, the Exchange has committed to provide a thorough study of the impact that its quote mitigation plan has on, among other things, system capacity problems or other problems that arose related to the operation of the Penny Pilot Program. Consequently, the Commission believes there are sufficient safeguards in place to analyze and, if necessary, address any negative impact that may result from NYSE Arca’s proposal to disseminate quotes only in ‘‘active options series’’ as defined by Commentary .03 to NYSE Arca Rule 6.86. IV. Conclusion rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,13 that the proposed rule change (SR–NYSEArca– 2006–73), as modified by Amendment No. 1, be, and hereby is, approved on a six-month pilot basis, which will commence on January 26, 2007. For the Commission, by the Division of Market Regulation, pursuant to delegated authority.14 Florence E. Harmon, Deputy Secretary. [FR Doc.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements concerning the purpose of, and basis for, the proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item III below. The Exchange 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 NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34 currently provides, in part, that the NYSE Arca Marketplace shall have three trading sessions each day: an Opening Session (1 a.m. Pacific Time (‘‘PT’’) to 6:30 a.m. PT), a Core Trading Session (6:30 a.m. PT to 1 p.m. PT), and a Late Trading Session (1 p.m. PT to 5 p.m. PT), and that the Core Trading Session for securities described in NYSE Arca Equities Rules 5.1(b)(13), 5.1(b)(18), 5.2(j)(3), 8.100, 8.200, 8.201, 8.202, 8.203, and 8.300 (each, a ‘‘Derivative Securities Product’’) shall conclude at 1:15 pm (PT).5 The Exchange proposes to amend NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34(a)(3)(A) to add Paired Trust Shares described in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400 to the securities for which the Core Trading Session concludes at 1:15 p.m. PT.6 The Exchange also includes in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34 a list of those securities which are eligible to trade in one or more, but not all three, of the Exchange’s trading sessions, and maintains on its Web site a list that 5 NYSE Arca Equities Rules 5.1(b)(13), 5.2(j)(3), 8.100, 8.200, 8.201, 8.202, 8.203, and 8.300 relate to Unit Investment Trusts, Investment Company Units and Portfolio Depositary Receipts, Trust Issued Receipts, Commodity-Based Trust Shares, Currency Trust Shares, Commodity Index Trust Shares, and Partnership Units, respectively. See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 54997 (December 21, 2006), 71 FR 78501 (December 29, 2006) (SR–NYSEArca–2006–77) (relating to amendments to NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34). 6 In Securities Exchange Act Release No. 55033 (December 29, 2006), 72 FR 1253 (January 10, 2007) (SR–NYSEArca–2006–75), the Commission approved NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400 to permit trading on the NYSE Arca Marketplace, either by listing or pursuant to UTP, of securities issued by a pair of related trusts and based on an index or other numerical variable whose value reflects the value of assets, prices, or other economic interests. The Commission also approved in this filing the trading, pursuant to UTP, of the Claymore MACROshares Oil Up Tradeable Shares and Claymore MACROshares Oil Down Tradeable Shares. E:\FR\FM\01FEN1.SGM 01FEN1 4762 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 21 / Thursday, February 1, 2007 / Notices identifies all securities traded on the NYSE Arca Marketplace that do not trade for the duration of each of the three sessions specified in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34. The Exchange proposes to add the following securities to these lists: (1) Claymore MACROshares Oil Up Tradeable Shares and (2) Claymore MACROshares Oil Down Tradeable Shares.7 These securities are traded on the Exchange pursuant to UTP and are Paired Trust Shares, as described in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400. Finally, the Exchange proposes to amend NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34(a)(4)(A) relating to trading halt procedures applicable to trading specified Derivative Securities Products on a UTP basis in the Opening, Core, and Late Trading Sessions. The Exchange proposes to add Paired Trust Shares described in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400 to the list of Derivative Securities Products to which NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34(a)(4)(A) applies. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with section 6(b) of the Act,8 in general, and furthers the objectives of section 6(b)(5) 9 in particular, in that it is designed to facilitate transactions in securities, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to enhance competition, and 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 any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES 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 foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or 7 See note 5, supra.

The Commission believes that such waiver is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest because the proposed rule change should provide transparency and more clarity with respect to the trading hours eligibility of certain derivative securities products and should promote consistency in the trading halts of derivative securities. For these reasons, the Commission designates the proposed rule change as operative immediately.12 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the 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.

of the Exchange's trading sessions. The securities to be added to the

privileges (``UTP'') and are described in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400 
(``Paired Trust Shares''). The Exchange also proposes to include a

    The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange's

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 Exchange included statements 
concerning the purpose of, and basis for, the proposed rule change. The 
text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in 
Item III below. The Exchange 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
    NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34 currently provides, in part, that the 
NYSE Arca Marketplace shall have three trading sessions each day: an 
Opening Session (1 a.m. Pacific Time (``PT'') to 6:30 a.m. PT), a Core 
Trading Session (6:30 a.m. PT to 1 p.m. PT), and a Late Trading Session 
(1 p.m. PT to 5 p.m. PT), and that the Core Trading Session for 
securities described in NYSE Arca Equities Rules 5.1(b)(13), 
5.1(b)(18), 5.2(j)(3), 8.100, 8.200, 8.201, 8.202, 8.203, and 8.300 
(each, a ``Derivative Securities Product'') shall conclude at 1:15 pm 
(PT).\5\ The Exchange proposes to amend NYSE Arca Equities Rule 
7.34(a)(3)(A) to add Paired Trust Shares described in NYSE Arca 
Equities Rule 8.400 to the securities for which the Core Trading 
Session concludes at 1:15 p.m. PT.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ NYSE Arca Equities Rules 5.1(b)(13), 5.2(j)(3), 8.100, 
8.200, 8.201, 8.202, 8.203, and 8.300 relate to Unit Investment 
Trusts, Investment Company Units and Portfolio Depositary Receipts, 
Trust Issued Receipts, Commodity-Based Trust Shares, Currency Trust 
Shares, Commodity Index Trust Shares, and Partnership Units, 
respectively. See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 54997 
(December 21, 2006), 71 FR 78501 (December 29, 2006) (SR-NYSEArca-
2006-77) (relating to amendments to NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34).
    \6\ In Securities Exchange Act Release No. 55033 (December 29, 
2006), 72 FR 1253 (January 10, 2007) (SR-NYSEArca-2006-75), the 
Commission approved NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400 to permit trading 
on the NYSE Arca Marketplace, either by listing or pursuant to UTP, 
of securities issued by a pair of related trusts and based on an 
index or other numerical variable whose value reflects the value of 
assets, prices, or other economic interests. The Commission also 
approved in this filing the trading, pursuant to UTP, of the 
Claymore MACROshares Oil Up Tradeable Shares and Claymore 
MACROshares Oil Down Tradeable Shares.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange also includes in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34 a list 
of those securities which are eligible to trade in one or more, but not 
all three, of the Exchange's trading sessions, and maintains on its Web 
site a list that

[[Page 4762]]

identifies all securities traded on the NYSE Arca Marketplace that do 
not trade for the duration of each of the three sessions specified in 
NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34. The Exchange proposes to add the 
following securities to these lists: (1) Claymore MACROshares Oil Up 
Tradeable Shares and (2) Claymore MACROshares Oil Down Tradeable 
Shares.\7\ These securities are traded on the Exchange pursuant to UTP 
and are Paired Trust Shares, as described in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 
8.400.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See note 5, supra.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Finally, the Exchange proposes to amend NYSE Arca Equities Rule 
7.34(a)(4)(A) relating to trading halt procedures applicable to trading 
specified Derivative Securities Products on a UTP basis in the Opening, 
Core, and Late Trading Sessions. The Exchange proposes to add Paired 
Trust Shares described in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400 to the list of 
Derivative Securities Products to which NYSE Arca Equities Rule 
7.34(a)(4)(A) applies.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent 
with section 6(b) of the Act,\8\ in general, and furthers the 
objectives of section 6(b)(5) \9\ in particular, in that it is designed 
to facilitate transactions in securities, to promote just and equitable 
principles of trade, to enhance competition, and to protect investors 
and the public interest.

    \9\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will 
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 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 foregoing proposed rule change does not:
    (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public 
interest;
    (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and
    (iii) become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was 
filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if 
consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, it 
has become effective pursuant to section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \10\ 
and rule 19b-4(f)(6) thereunder.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A).
    \11\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b-4(f)(6) 
requires an exchange to give the Commission written notice of its 
intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a brief 
description and text of the proposed rule change, at least five days 
prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule change, or such 
shorter time as designated by the Commission. The Commission has 
determined to waive the five-day pre-filing notice requirement in 
this case.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange has asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative 
delay. The Commission believes that such waiver is consistent with the 
protection of investors and the public interest because the proposed 
rule change should provide transparency and more clarity with respect 
to the trading hours eligibility of certain derivative securities 
products and should promote consistency in the trading halts of 
derivative securities. For these reasons, the Commission designates the 
proposed rule change as operative immediately.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ For purposes only of accelerating the operative date of 
this proposal, the Commission has considered the rule's impact on 
efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 
78c(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At any time within 60 days of the filing of the 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:
