Pursuant to section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Exchange Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on September 16, 2008, the Chicago 1 15 2 17 Board Options Exchange, Incorporated (the ‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘CBOE’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I and II below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. 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 Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to change CBOE Stock Exchange (‘‘CBSX’’) Rule 51.8, to adopt a CBSX-Only order. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site (http://www.cboe.com), at the Office of the Secretary, CBOE and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. 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 self-regulatory organization 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 those statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant parts of such statements. U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:07 Sep 25, 2008 A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The purpose of this proposed rule change is to revise CBOE Stock Exchange (‘‘CBSX’’) Rule 51.8 to adopt a CBSX-Only order type. A CBSX-only order is an order to buy or sell that is to be executed in whole or in part on CBSX, and the portion not so executed is to be cancelled, without routing the order to another market center or market participant, and without being ‘‘flashed’’ at the NBBO price to CBSX Traders pursuant to Rule 52.6 when CBSX is not at the NBBO and the order is marketable against the NBBO. Thus, a CBSX-Only order would either immediately execute on CBSX, get booked on CBSX (provided it does not cause a locked or crossed market), or cancel. Many exchanges have similar order-types (e.g. NSX Rule 11.11(c)(6)). 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with section 6(b) of the Act 3 in general and furthers the objectives of section 6(b)(5) of the Act 4 in particular in that, by offering users greater control over order routing, it is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, serve to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system. 3 15 4 15 Jkt 214001 PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\26SEN1.SGM U.S.C. 78f(b).

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition CBOE does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition 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 No written comments were solicited or received with respect to the proposed rule change. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The proposed rule change is filed for immediate effectiveness pursuant to section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 5 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder 6 because it effects a change 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) by its terms, does not become operative for 30 days after the date of the filing, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest.7 CBOE has requested the Commission to waive the 30-day operative delay because the proposal may assist investors by allowing greater control over order routing. The Commission hereby grants the Exchange’s request and believes such waiver is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The CBSX-only order is similar to orders currently available on other markets and does not appear to raise any novel or significant issues.8 Accordingly, the Commission designates the proposed rule change operative upon filing with the Commission.

The Commission has determined to waive the five-day prefiling period in this case. 8 For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay of this proposal, the Commission has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation.

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

    The Exchange proposes to change CBOE Stock Exchange (``CBSX'') Rule 
51.8, to adopt a CBSX-Only order. The text of the proposed rule change 
is available on the Exchange's Web site (http://www.cboe.com), at the 
Office of the Secretary, CBOE and at the Commission's Public Reference

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 self-regulatory organization 
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 those statements may be examined at 
the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared 
summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most 
significant parts of such statements.

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    The purpose of this proposed rule change is to revise CBOE Stock 
Exchange (``CBSX'') Rule 51.8 to adopt a CBSX-Only order type. A CBSX-
only order is an order to buy or sell that is to be executed in whole 
or in part on CBSX, and the portion not so executed is to be cancelled, 
without routing the order to another market center or market 
participant, and without being ``flashed'' at the NBBO price to CBSX 
Traders pursuant to Rule 52.6 when CBSX is not at the NBBO and the 
order is marketable against the NBBO. Thus, a CBSX-Only order would 
either immediately execute on CBSX, get booked on CBSX (provided it 
does not cause a locked or crossed market), or cancel. Many exchanges 
have similar order-types (e.g. NSX Rule 11.11(c)(6)).
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with 
section 6(b) of the Act \3\ in general and furthers the objectives of 
section 6(b)(5) of the Act \4\ in particular in that, by offering users 
greater control over order routing, it is designed to promote just and 
equitable principles of trade, serve to remove impediments to and 
perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market 
system.

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

    CBOE does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any 
burden on competition 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

    No written comments were solicited or received with respect to the 
proposed rule change.

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    The proposed rule change is filed for immediate effectiveness 
pursuant to section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \5\ and Rule 19b-4(f)(6) 
thereunder \6\ because it effects a change 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) by its terms, does not become operative for 30 days after the 
date of the filing, or such shorter time as the Commission may 
designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public 
interest.\7\

    \7\ In addition, Rule 19b-4(f)(6) under the Act requires the 
self-regulatory organization to give the Commission 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. The 
Commission has determined to waive the five-day prefiling period in 
this case.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    CBOE has requested the Commission to waive the 30-day operative 
delay because the proposal may assist investors by allowing greater 
control over order routing. The Commission hereby grants the Exchange's 
request and believes such waiver is consistent with the protection of 
investors and the public interest. The CBSX-only order is similar to 
orders currently available on other markets and does not appear to 
raise any novel or significant issues.\8\ Accordingly, the Commission 
designates the proposed rule change operative upon filing with the 
Commission.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay of 
this proposal, the Commission has considered the proposed rule's 
impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 
U.S.C. 78c(f).
