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 unsolicited written comments from members or other interested parties. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The Exchange has designated the proposed rule change as one that: (1) Does not significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (2) does not impose any significant burden on competition; and (3) does not become operative for 30 days from the date of filing, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. Therefore, the foregoing rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 10 and subparagraph (f)(6) of Rule 19b–4 thereunder.11 The Exchange has asked the Commission to waive the operative delay to permit the proposed rule change to become operative prior to the 30th day after filing. The Commission has determined that waiving the 30-day operative delay of the Exchange’s proposal is consistent with the 8 15 U.S.C. 78(f)(b). U.S.C. 78(f)(b)(5). 10 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). 11 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) requires a self-regulatory organization to provide the Commission with 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 business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission.

Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on June 17, 2008, the National Stock Exchange (‘‘NSX’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I and II below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The NSX designated the proposed rule change as ‘‘noncontroversial’’ under Section 19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act 3 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder,4 which renders the proposal effective upon filing with the Commission. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I.

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 text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The NSX 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 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES 1. Purpose The Exchange is proposing to amend Exchange Rules 11.11(c)(2) and 11.14 to allow ETP Holders the option of submitting a limit cap price on any pegged Zero Display Reserve Order. Under current Rule 11.11(c)(2), Zero Display Reserve Orders may be entered with either a limit price or with a ‘‘peg,’’ which, at the ETP Holder’s discretion, is pegged to the buy-side, sell-side, or midpoint of the Protected Best Bid or Offer (‘‘PBBO’’). Under this proposal, ETP Holders would be able to enter an optional limit cap price on any pegged Zero Display Reserve Order. The cap price will prevent the pegged order from following the PBBO past the ETP Holder’s specified price. A limit price may be entered, providing a ceiling price (for Buy orders) and floor price (for Sell orders). All pegged Zero Display Reserve Orders—including those that track the inside quote on the same side of the market (‘‘Primary Peg’’), the opposite side of the market (‘‘Market Peg’’) or the Midpoint—are eligible to have a limit cap price. The methodology used to price the pegged orders will remain unchanged. However, if the pegged order upon price re-evaluation would be assigned a value that violates its limit price due to the cap, the pegged order will not be assigned that new price and will therefore not be eligible for matching. This pegged order will be re-evaluated again when a new marketable order arrives. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:51 Jul 01, 2008 Jkt 214001 In addition, the limit price may be modified by entering a cancel/replace of the pegged order. In this case, a new timestamp will be applied. Rule 11.14 will be amended to reflect this priority. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposal is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act,5 in general, and Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,6 in particular, which requires, among other things, that the rules of an exchange be designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, 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 inappropriate burden on competition. 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 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 after the date of filing, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 7 and subparagraph (f)(6) of Rule 19b–4 thereunder.8 As required under Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii),9 the NSX provided the Commission with written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a brief description and text of the proposed rule change, prior to the filing of the proposed rule change. A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) normally may not become operative prior to the 30th day after the date of filing.10 However, Rule PO 00000 5 15 U.S.C. 78f.

The NSX requested that the Commission waive the 30-day operative delay and make the proposed rule change effective and operative upon filing because the proposal is similar to a feature available on other markets and raises no new issues. The Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. In particular, the Commission does not believe that the rule change presents any novel issues since the inclusion of a limit cap on the Zero Display Reserve Order has been included on similar order types currently available on other markets.12 Accordingly, the Commission designates the proposed rule change operative upon filing with the Commission.13 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission may summarily abrogate the 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 Commission also approved this PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38003 Up MacroShares and the Down MacroShares will be offered by the Up Trust and the Down Trust, respectively, established by MACRO Inflation Depositor, LLC, as depositor, under the laws of the State of New York. The Trusts are not registered with the Commission as investment companies.4 a. Amendment to NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400 The Exchange proposes to amend NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400, which applies to Paired Trust Shares, to accommodate the listing and trading of Shares. In its current form, NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400 applies to Paired Trust Shares that consist of Holding Shares and Tradeable Shares.5 As described in more detail below, the structure of the series of Paired Trust Shares proposed to be listed and traded on the Exchange pursuant to this proposed rule change varies from the structure of Holding Shares and Tradable Shares in that there are no Holding Trusts and there is only one set of trusts (the ‘‘Up Trust’’ and the ‘‘Down Trust’’) instead of two. Under the proposed amendments to NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400(b)(1), the term ‘‘Paired Trust Shares’’ would refer to: (1) Both Holding Shares and Tradeable Shares; or (2) solely ‘‘Trading Shares,’’ which is a new defined term in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400(b)(1)(B). Trading Shares would be defined similarly to Holding Shares in current NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400(b)(2) (proposed to be renumbered as NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400(b)(1)(A)(i)), except that it is not required that a majority of Trading Shares be acquired product for trading on the Exchange pursuant to unlisted trading privileges when it approved new NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400. See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 55033 (December 29, 2006), 72 FR 1253 (January 10, 2007) (SR– NYSEArca–2006–75) (approving trading Claymore MACROshares Oil Up Tradeable Shares and Claymore MACROshares Oil Down Tradeable Shares). 4 The Shares are being offered by the Trusts under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, 15 U.S.C. 77a. On January 25, 2008, the depositor filed with the Commission Amendment No. 1 to Registration Statement on Form S–1 for the Up MacroShares (File No. 333–147948) (‘‘Up Trust Registration Statement’’). The depositor will file with the Commission a Registration Statement on Form S– 1 for the Down MacroShares prior to commencement of trading in the Shares on the Exchange. 5 Holding Shares are issued by a matched pair of trusts (‘‘Holding Trusts’’) in exchange for cash, and Tradeable Shares are issued by a different pair of trusts (‘‘Tradeable Trusts’’) in exchange for the deposit of Holding Shares. These rules accommodated the structure of the Claymore MACROshares Oil Up Tradeable Shares and Claymore MACROshares Oil Down Tradeable Shares previously approved by the Commission. See note 3, supra.

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

    The Exchange is proposing to amend NSX Rules 11.11(c)(2) and 11.14 
to

[[Page 38002]]

allow ETP holders the option of submitting a limit cap price on any 
pegged Zero Display Reserve Order. The text of the proposed rule change 
is available at the Exchange, the Commission's Public Reference Room, 
and http://www.nsx.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 
text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in 
Item IV below. The NSX 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 Exchange Rules 11.11(c)(2) and 
11.14 to allow ETP Holders the option of submitting a limit cap price 
on any pegged Zero Display Reserve Order. Under current Rule 
11.11(c)(2), Zero Display Reserve Orders may be entered with either a 
limit price or with a ``peg,'' which, at the ETP Holder's discretion, 
is pegged to the buy-side, sell-side, or mid-point of the Protected 
Best Bid or Offer (``PBBO''). Under this proposal, ETP Holders would be 
able to enter an optional limit cap price on any pegged Zero Display 
Reserve Order. The cap price will prevent the pegged order from 
following the PBBO past the ETP Holder's specified price. A limit price 
may be entered, providing a ceiling price (for Buy orders) and floor 
price (for Sell orders). All pegged Zero Display Reserve Orders--
including those that track the inside quote on the same side of the 
market (``Primary Peg''), the opposite side of the market (``Market 
Peg'') or the Midpoint--are eligible to have a limit cap price.
    The methodology used to price the pegged orders will remain 
unchanged. However, if the pegged order upon price re-evaluation would 
be assigned a value that violates its limit price due to the cap, the 
pegged order will not be assigned that new price and will therefore not 
be eligible for matching. This pegged order will be re-evaluated again 
when a new marketable order arrives.
    In addition, the limit price may be modified by entering a cancel/
replace of the pegged order. In this case, a new timestamp will be 
applied. Rule 11.14 will be amended to reflect this priority.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the proposal is consistent with Section 
6(b) of the Act,\5\ in general, and Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,\6\ in 
particular, which requires, among other things, that the rules of an 
exchange be designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, 
to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open 
market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect 
investors and the public interest.

    \6\ 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 inappropriate burden on competition.

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 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 after the date of filing, or such shorter time as the Commission 
may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the 
public interest, the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant 
to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \7\ and subparagraph (f)(6) of Rule 
19b-4 thereunder.\8\ As required under Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii),\9\ the 
NSX provided the Commission with written notice of its intent to file 
the proposed rule change, along with a brief description and text of 
the proposed rule change, prior to the filing of the proposed rule 
change.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b-4(f)(6) normally may 
not become operative prior to the 30th day after the date of 
filing.\10\ However, Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) \11\ permits the Commission 
to designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the 
protection of investors and the public interest. The NSX requested that 
the Commission waive the 30-day operative delay and make the proposed 
rule change effective and operative upon filing because the proposal is 
similar to a feature available on other markets and raises no new 
issues. The Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay 
is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. 
In particular, the Commission does not believe that the rule change 
presents any novel issues since the inclusion of a limit cap on the 
Zero Display Reserve Order has been included on similar order types 
currently available on other markets.\12\

043); 51326 (March 7, 2005), 70 FR 12521 (March 14, 2005) (SR-NASD-
2004-173).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Accordingly, the Commission designates the proposed rule change 
operative upon filing with the Commission.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
