Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act 4 in general, and 3 The OCS is an interactive system, which is used to perform comparison processing, such as matching of initial trade submission, correction processing and questioned trade resolution. 4 15 U.S.C. 78f(b).
