When the Exchange is the UTP trading market, the Exchange will cease trading in the shares of ETFs during all trading sessions if (a) the listing market stops trading the shares, or (b) the listing market delists the shares. Additionally, the Exchange may cease trading the shares if such other event shall occur or condition exists which, in the opinion of the Exchange, makes further dealings on the Exchange inadvisable. UTP trading in the shares of ETFs is also governed by the trading halt provisions of NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34 relating to temporary interruptions in the calculation or wide dissemination of the Intraday Indicative Value (‘‘IIV’’) 31 or the value of the 30 The Exchange states that it may obtain information via the Intermarket Surveillance Group (‘‘ISG’’) from other exchanges who are members or affiliate members of ISG. In addition, as referenced in the applicable approval orders, the Exchange has in place information sharing agreements with the relevant exchange(s). 31 The IIV is also sometimes referred to as the Indicative Optimized Portfolio Value (‘‘IOPV’’), the Indicative Fund Value (‘‘IFV’’), the Indicative Trust Value (‘‘ITV’’), and the Indicative Partnership Value (‘‘IPV’’), depending upon the type of ETF being VerDate Aug<31>2005 00:43 Aug 31, 2007 Jkt 211001 underlying index or other applicable underlying benchmark. ETF shares will be traded following a trading halt in accordance with NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.35(f). 6. When the Exchange is the listing market, the Exchange may consider all relevant factors in exercising its discretion to halt or suspend trading in the shares of an ETF. Trading may be halted because of market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, make trading in the shares inadvisable. Factors for consideration may include (a) the extent to which trading is not occurring in the securities or other instruments underlying an ETF, or (b) whether other unusual conditions or circumstances detrimental to the maintenance of a fair and orderly market are present. In addition, trading in the shares of listed ETFs are subject to trading halts caused by extraordinary market volatility pursuant to the Exchange’s ‘‘circuit breaker’’ rule (NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.12) or by the halt or suspension of trading of the underlying securities or other instruments underlying an ETF. If the IIV or the index value applicable to a series of shares is not being disseminated as required, the Exchange may halt trading during the day in which the interruption to the dissemination of the IIV or the index value occurs. If the interruption to the dissemination of the IIV or the index value persists past the trading day in which it occurred, the Exchange will halt trading no later than the beginning of the trading day following the interruption. 7. The IIV and/or index value (or value of the underlying asset or instrument, if not an index) will continue to be disseminated during all three trading sessions, to the extent the relevant approval order provides for this dissemination requirement. The Exchange intends to distribute to its ETP Holders and make available on its Web site a Regulatory Information Bulletin titled ‘‘Exchange-Traded Funds—Extended Trading Hours’’ that discloses and discusses, among other things, the following: (1) The underlying index value may not be updated during the Core and Late Trading Sessions; (2) the IIV may not be updated during the Core and Late Trading Sessions; (3) commodity and currency spot prices are available in the Core and Late Trading Sessions, but commodity and currency futures prices generally will not be available in the Core and Late Trading traded and the terminology used in the Commission approval orders. PO 00000 Frm 00113 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Sessions; 32 (4) lower liquidity in the Core and Late Trading Sessions may impact pricing; (5) higher volatility in the Core and Late Trading Sessions may impact pricing; (6) wider spreads may occur in the Core and Late Trading Sessions; (7) required customer disclosures; 33 (8) the circumstances that trigger trading halts; and (9) suitability requirements. The Exchange recently amended NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34(e) to require ETP Holders to disclose additional risks associated with extended hours trading in new derivative securities products to customers.34 The Exchange notes that if the official index value does not change during some or all of the period when trading is occurring on the Exchange (for example, because of time zone differences or holidays in countries where the index component stocks trade), then the last calculated official index value must remain available throughout Exchange trading hours. Similarly, if the IIV does not change during any portion of Exchange trading hours, then the last official calculated IIV must remain available throughout Exchange trading hours. 2. Statutory Basis The proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act,35 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5),36 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 32 The Exchange states that, in certain cases, the futures or options markets for a particular commodity may be closed during part of the Core Trading Session, and the IIV would be static for that particular future or options price, but widely disseminated. In addition, the prices of certain futures contracts in commodities (e.g., gold) and currencies are available on a 24-hour basis. 33 See infra note 34. 34 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 56270 (August 15, 2007), 72 FR 47109 (August 22, 2007) (SR–NYSEArca–2007–74). Specifically, the Exchange requires ETP Holders to disclose to their non-ETP Holder customers that an updated underlying index value or IIV may not be calculated or publicly disseminated during extended trading hours. Since the IIV is not calculated or widely disseminated during the Opening and Late Trading Sessions, an investor who is unable to calculate an implied value for a derivative securities product in those sessions may be at a disadvantage to market professionals. The Exchange believes that requiring ETP Holders to disclose this risk to non-ETP Holders will facilitate informed participation in extended hours trading. 35 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). 36 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).

hours of trading for securities of certain ETFs).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    NYSE Arca proposes to expand the trading hours of securities of the

     the iShares COMEX Gold Trust.\29\

    \29\ This ETF was approved for UTP trading on the Exchange under

Act Release No. 51067 (January 21, 2005), 70 FR 3952 (January 27, 
2005) (SR-PCX-2004-132). This ETF was subsequently approved for 
listing and trading in all three Exchange trading sessions upon 
transfer of the listing to the Exchange. See Securities Exchange Act 
Release No. 56041 (July 11, 2007), 72 FR 39114 (July 17, 2007) (SR-
NYSEArca-2007-43). Pursuant to this proposal, the Exchange seeks to 
trade the securities of this ETF in all three trading sessions prior 
to the transfer of the listing.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In support of this proposed rule change, the Exchange states that 
the representations in the approval orders

[[Page 50434]]

for the foregoing ETFs, as summarized below, continue to apply with 
respect to trading during the Core and Late Trading Sessions:
    1. The Exchange has appropriate rules to facilitate transactions in 
shares of the above ETFs during all trading sessions. The Exchange 
deems such shares to be equity securities, thus rendering trading in 
such shares subject to the Exchange's existing rules governing the 
trading of equity securities.
    2. The Exchange's surveillance procedures are adequate to properly 
monitor trading of shares of the above ETFs in all trading 
sessions.\30\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \30\ The Exchange states that it may obtain information via the 
Intermarket Surveillance Group (``ISG'') from other exchanges who 
are members or affiliate members of ISG. In addition, as referenced 
in the applicable approval orders, the Exchange has in place 
information sharing agreements with the relevant exchange(s).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    3. The Exchange has distributed an Information Bulletin to Equity 
Trading Permit (``ETP'') Holders prior to the commencement of trading 
of the shares of the above ETFs on the Exchange that explains the 
terms, characteristics, and risks of trading such shares. In addition, 
the Exchange states that it will distribute an Information Bulletin 
that explains the terms, characteristics, and risks of trading the 
shares of the above ETFs that have not yet been launched to ETP Holders 
prior to the commencement of trading of such shares.
    4. The Exchange will require ETP Holders with a customer who 
purchases newly issued shares of the above ETFs in any trading session 
on the NYSE Arca Marketplace to provide that customer with a product 
description, if available, or a prospectus, and has noted this delivery 
requirement in the Information Bulletin.
    5. When the Exchange is the UTP trading market, the Exchange will 
cease trading in the shares of ETFs during all trading sessions if (a) 
the listing market stops trading the shares, or (b) the listing market 
delists the shares. Additionally, the Exchange may cease trading the 
shares if such other event shall occur or condition exists which, in 
the opinion of the Exchange, makes further dealings on the Exchange 
inadvisable. UTP trading in the shares of ETFs is also governed by the 
trading halt provisions of NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34 relating to 
temporary interruptions in the calculation or wide dissemination of the 
Intraday Indicative Value (``IIV'') \31\ or the value of the underlying 
index or other applicable underlying benchmark. ETF shares will be 
traded following a trading halt in accordance with NYSE Arca Equities 
Rule 7.35(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \31\ The IIV is also sometimes referred to as the Indicative 
Optimized Portfolio Value (``IOPV''), the Indicative Fund Value 
(``IFV''), the Indicative Trust Value (``ITV''), and the Indicative 
Partnership Value (``IPV''), depending upon the type of ETF being 
traded and the terminology used in the Commission approval orders.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    6. When the Exchange is the listing market, the Exchange may 
consider all relevant factors in exercising its discretion to halt or 
suspend trading in the shares of an ETF. Trading may be halted because 
of market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, 
make trading in the shares inadvisable. Factors for consideration may 
include (a) the extent to which trading is not occurring in the 
securities or other instruments underlying an ETF, or (b) whether other 
unusual conditions or circumstances detrimental to the maintenance of a 
fair and orderly market are present. In addition, trading in the shares 
of listed ETFs are subject to trading halts caused by extraordinary 
market volatility pursuant to the Exchange's ``circuit breaker'' rule 
(NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.12) or by the halt or suspension of trading 
of the underlying securities or other instruments underlying an ETF. If 
the IIV or the index value applicable to a series of shares is not 
being disseminated as required, the Exchange may halt trading during 
the day in which the interruption to the dissemination of the IIV or 
the index value occurs. If the interruption to the dissemination of the 
IIV or the index value persists past the trading day in which it 
occurred, the Exchange will halt trading no later than the beginning of 
the trading day following the interruption.
    7. The IIV and/or index value (or value of the underlying asset or 
instrument, if not an index) will continue to be disseminated during 
all three trading sessions, to the extent the relevant approval order 
provides for this dissemination requirement.
    The Exchange intends to distribute to its ETP Holders and make 
available on its Web site a Regulatory Information Bulletin titled 
``Exchange-Traded Funds--Extended Trading Hours'' that discloses and 
discusses, among other things, the following: (1) The underlying index 
value may not be updated during the Core and Late Trading Sessions; (2) 
the IIV may not be updated during the Core and Late Trading Sessions; 
(3) commodity and currency spot prices are available in the Core and 
Late Trading Sessions, but commodity and currency futures prices 
generally will not be available in the Core and Late Trading Sessions; 
\32\ (4) lower liquidity in the Core and Late Trading Sessions may 
impact pricing; (5) higher volatility in the Core and Late Trading 
Sessions may impact pricing; (6) wider spreads may occur in the Core 
and Late Trading Sessions; (7) required customer disclosures; \33\ (8) 
the circumstances that trigger trading halts; and (9) suitability 
requirements. The Exchange recently amended NYSE Arca Equities Rule 
7.34(e) to require ETP Holders to disclose additional risks associated 
with extended hours trading in new derivative securities products to 
customers.\34\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \32\ The Exchange states that, in certain cases, the futures or 
options markets for a particular commodity may be closed during part 
of the Core Trading Session, and the IIV would be static for that 
particular future or options price, but widely disseminated. In 
addition, the prices of certain futures contracts in commodities 
(e.g., gold) and currencies are available on a 24-hour basis.
    \33\ See infra note 34.
    \34\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 56270 (August 15, 
2007), 72 FR 47109 (August 22, 2007) (SR-NYSEArca-2007-74). 
Specifically, the Exchange requires ETP Holders to disclose to their 
non-ETP Holder customers that an updated underlying index value or 
IIV may not be calculated or publicly disseminated during extended 
trading hours. Since the IIV is not calculated or widely 
disseminated during the Opening and Late Trading Sessions, an 
investor who is unable to calculate an implied value for a 
derivative securities product in those sessions may be at a 
disadvantage to market professionals. The Exchange believes that 
requiring ETP Holders to disclose this risk to non-ETP Holders will 
facilitate informed participation in extended hours trading.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange notes that if the official index value does not change 
during some or all of the period when trading is occurring on the 
Exchange (for example, because of time zone differences or holidays in 
countries where the index component stocks trade), then the last 
calculated official index value must remain available throughout 
Exchange trading hours. Similarly, if the IIV does not change during 
any portion of Exchange trading hours, then the last official 
calculated IIV must remain available throughout Exchange trading hours.
2. Statutory Basis
    The proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the 
Act,\35\ in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 
6(b)(5),\36\ 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

[[Page 50435]]

mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system.

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

    The Exchange believes the proposed rule change will impose no 
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 states that no written comments were solicited or 
received with respect to the proposed rule change.
