Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 149 / Friday, August 3, 2007 / Notices 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 On January 5, 2006, the ISE initiated a system change to identify to a DMM the identity of the firm entering a Directed Order. The ISE filed this system change on a pilot basis under section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Exchange Act’’) and Rule 19b–4(f)(5) thereunder 5 so that it would be effective while the Commission considered a separate proposed rule change filed under section 19(b)(2) of the Exchange Act to amend the ISE’s rules to reflect the system change on a permanent basis (the ‘‘Permanent Rule Change’’).6 The current pilot expires on July 31, 2007,7 but the Commission has not yet taken action with respect to the Permanent Rule Change. Accordingly, the Exchange proposes to extend the pilot until January 31, 2008, so that the system change will remain in effect while the Commission continues to evaluate the Permanent Rule Change.8 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the basis under the Act is found in section 6(b)(5), in that the propose rule change is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, remove impediments to and perfect the mechanisms of a free and open market and a national market system and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. Extension of the pilot program will allow the Exchange to continue operating under the pilot while the Commission considers the Permanent Rule Change. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 53104 (January 11, 2006), 71 FR 3142 (January 19, 2006) (Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness for SR–ISE–2006–02). 6 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 53103 (January 11, 2006), 71 F.R. 3144 (January 19, 2006) (Notice of Filing for SR–ISE–2006–01). 7 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 55144 (January 22, 2007), 72 FR 3890 (January 26, 2007) (Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness for SR–ISE–2007–05). 8 The ISE anticipated that extension of the pilot might be necessary and included this in the filing for the initial pilot. See supra note 5, at footnote 5. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:17 Aug 02, 2007 Jkt 211001 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 written comments from members or other interested parties. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the foregoing proposed rule change effects a change in an existing order entry or trading system that (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 have the effect of limiting access to or availability of the system, it has become effective pursuant to section 19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act 9 and Rule 19b–4(f)(5) thereunder.10 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.

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 mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES The Exchange is proposing to amend its Schedule of Fees to establish fees for transactions in options on the following 3 Premium Products: First Trust ISE Chindia Index Fund (‘‘FNI’’), iShares MSCI Brazil Index Fund (‘‘EWZ’’) and the iShares MSCI Korea Index Fund (‘‘EWY’’).4 The Exchange represents that 3 ‘‘Premium Products’’ is defined in the Schedule of Fees as the products enumerated therein. 4 iShares is a registered trademark of Barclays Global Investors, N.A. (‘‘BGI’’), a wholly owned subsidiary of Barclays Bank PLC. ‘‘MSCI Korea Index’’ and ‘‘MSCI Brazil Index’’ are service marks of Morgan Stanley Capital International (‘‘MSCI’’) and have been licensed for use for certain purposes by BGI.

The Exchange believes the proposed rule change will further the Exchange’s goal of introducing new products to the marketplace that are competitively priced. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the objectives of section 6 of the Act,8 in general, and furthers the objectives of section 6(b)(4),9 in particular, in that it is designed to provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees and trademarks or service marks in connection with the listing, provision of a market for trading, marketing, and promotion of options on EWY and EWZ or with making disclosures concerning options on EWY and EWZ under any applicable federal or state laws, rules or regulations.

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 Exchange is proposing to amend its Schedule of Fees to 
establish fees for transactions in options on the following 3 Premium 
Products: First Trust ISE Chindia Index Fund (``FNI''), iShares MSCI 
Brazil Index Fund (``EWZ'') and the iShares MSCI Korea Index Fund 
(``EWY'').\4\ The Exchange represents that FNI, EWZ and EWY are 
eligible for options trading because they constitute ``Fund Shares,'' 
as defined by ISE Rule 502(h).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ iShares[reg] is a registered trademark of Barclays Global 
Investors, N.A. (``BGI''), a wholly owned subsidiary of Barclays 
Bank PLC. ``MSCI Korea Index'' and ``MSCI Brazil Index'' are service 
marks of Morgan Stanley Capital International (``MSCI'') and have 
been licensed for use for certain purposes by BGI. All other 
trademarks and service marks are the property of their respective 
owners. Neither EWY nor EWZ are sponsored, endorsed, issued, sold or 
promoted by MSCI. BGI and MSCI have not licensed or authorized ISE 
to (i) engage in the creation, listing, provision of a market for 
trading, marketing, and promotion of options on EWY and EWZ or (ii) 
to use and refer to any of their trademarks or service marks in 
connection with the listing, provision of a market for trading, 
marketing, and promotion of options on EWY and EWZ or with making 
disclosures concerning options on EWY and EWZ under any applicable 
federal or state laws, rules or regulations. BGI and MSCI do not 
sponsor, endorse, or promote such activity by ISE, and are not 
affiliated in any manner with ISE.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    All of the applicable fees covered by this filing are identical to 
fees charged by the Exchange for all other Premium Products. 
Specifically, the Exchange is proposing to adopt an execution fee and a 
comparison fee for all transactions in options on FNI, EWZ and EWY.\5\ 
The amount of the execution fee and comparison fee for products covered 
by this filing shall be $0.15 and $0.03 per contract, respectively, for 
all Public Customer Orders \6\ and Firm Proprietary orders. The amount 
of the execution fee and comparison fee for all ISE Market Maker 
transactions shall be equal to the execution fee and comparison fee 
currently charged by the Exchange for ISE Market Maker transactions in 
equity options.\7\ Finally, the amount of the execution fee and 
comparison fee for all non-ISE Market Maker transactions shall be $0.37 
and $0.03 per contract, respectively. Further, since options on EWZ and 
EWY are multiply-listed, the Payment for Order Flow fee shall apply 
only to these two products. The Exchange believes the proposed rule 
change will further the Exchange's goal of introducing new products to 
the marketplace that are competitively priced.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ These fees will be charged only to Exchange members. Under a 
pilot program that is set to expire on July 31, 2007, these fees 
will also be charged to Linkage Orders (as defined in ISE Rule 
1900). See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 54204 (July 25, 
2006), 71 FR 43548 (August 1, 2006) (SR-ISE-2006-38).
    \6\ ``Public Customer Order'' is defined in Exchange Rule 
100(a)(39) as an order for the account of a Public Customer. 
``Public Customer'' is defined in Exchange Rule 100(a)(38) as a 
person that is not a broker or dealer in securities.
    \7\ The execution fee is currently between $.21 and $.12 per 
contract side, depending on the Exchange Average Daily Volume, and 
the comparison fee is currently $.03 per contract side.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent 
with the objectives of section 6 of the Act,\8\ in general, and 
furthers the objectives of section 6(b)(4),\9\ in particular, in that 
it is designed to provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable 
dues, fees and other charges among its members and other persons using 
its facilities.

    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.

fee, or other charge imposed by the Exchange, the foregoing rule change 
has become effective pursuant to section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \10\ 
and Rule 19b-4(f)(2) \11\ thereunder. At any time within 60 days of the

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.
