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 November 7, 2008, the Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc. (‘‘CHX’’ or the ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III below, which Items have been prepared by the CHX. 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 CHX proposes to amend its Schedule of Participant Fees and Assessments (the ‘‘Fee Schedule’’) to alter the take/provide charges for Tape B securities. The text of this proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site at http:// www.chx.com/rules/ proposed_rules.htm, at the principal office of the Exchange, and in 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 CHX included statements concerning the purpose of, and basis for, the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received regarding the proposal. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The CHX has prepared 1 15 2 17 PO 00000 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71049 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 Changes 1. Purpose Through this filing, the Exchange would amend its Fee Schedule to discontinue the existing program setting forth a higher provide credit of $0.0036/ share for transactions in Tape B securities if certain volume thresholds had been met. Moreover, the transaction fee for liquidity takers in Tape B securities is being raised to $0.0030/ share from the current level of $0.0029/ share. All liquidity providers in Tape B securities would qualify for a credit of $0.0032/share, regardless of its average daily trading volume. The Exchange believes that these proposed fee changes are more consistent with its long-term goals of incenting firms to trade using our facilities at rates which do not expose the Exchange to potential losses or capital outlays. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the rule changes proposed in this submission are consistent with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder that are applicable to a national securities exchange, and, in particular, with the requirements of Section 6(b). The proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b)(4) of the Act in that it provides for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees and other charges among its Participants. The proposed increase in the liquidity takers fee in Tape B securities is of $0.0001/share, which is a relatively modest amount. The increased revenue will be used to fund the Exchange’s existing operations, which may in turn benefit its Participants. Finally, the discontinuance of the two-tiered fee structure for liquidity providers in Tape B securities fee streamlines the Exchange’s Fee Schedule and related billing structure, as well as eliminates a program which potentially exposed the Exchange to large and costly rebates to Participant firms. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule changes will impose any burden on competition. E:\FR\FM\24NON1.SGM 24NON1
