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

    The Exchange, through NYSE Arca Equities, is proposing to amend its 
rules in order to add a new order type known as the Fill-or-Kill Order. 
The changes described in this rule proposal would add new NYSE Arca 
Equities Rule 7.31(ll). The text of the proposed rule change is 
available at the Exchange, the Commission's Public Reference Room, and 
http://www.nyse.com.

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 and 
discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. 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
    In order to provide additional flexibility and increased 
functionality to its system and its Users,\5\ the Exchange proposes to 
add a new order type known as the Fill-or-Kill order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See NYSE Arca Equities Rule 1.1(yy) for the definition of 
``User.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Fill-or-Kill orders are limit orders that will be executed in full 
as soon as such order is received. However, if execution is not 
possible, the entire order will be immediately cancelled. Of course, 
Fill-or-Kill orders will not route out of NYSE Arca to other market 
centers; they will either be immediately executed, or cancelled, in 
their entirety.
    The Exchange believes that the addition of the proposed order type 
will

[[Page 50436]]

enhance flexibility and order execution opportunities for its Users.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ This proposed order type is substantially similar to Rule 
131(h) of the American Stock Exchange LLC.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Statutory Basis
    The proposed rule change is consistent with section 6(b) of the 
Act,\7\ in general, and furthers the objectives of section 6(b)(5) \8\ 
in particular in that it is designed to prevent fraudulent and 
manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable 
principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with 
persons engaged in facilitating transactions in securities, and to 
remove impediments to and perfect the mechanisms of a free and open 
market and a national market system.

    \7\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b).
    \8\ 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, it has become 
effective pursuant to section 19(b)(3)(A) \9\ of the Act and Rule 19b-
4(f)(6) thereunder.\10\ 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A).
    \10\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    NYSE Arca has asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative 
delay. The Commission believes such a waiver is consistent with the 
protection of investors and the public interest because it would permit 
the Exchange to offer the Fill-or-Kill order type functionality without 
delay.\11\ For this reason, the Commission designates the proposal to 
be operative upon filing with the Commission.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ For purposes only of waiving the 30-day pre-operative 
period, the Commission has considered the proposed rule's impact on 
efficiency, competition and capital formation. 15 U.S.C. 78c(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
