30-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection: Request for Reconsideration of Proviso(s); OMB Control Number 1405-0172, 41479-41480 [E9-19724]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 157 / Monday, August 17, 2009 / Notices receives a Directed Order. A DOMM will receive up to 40% of the remaining balance of an order, or the DOMM’s share in the order of ranking, whichever is greater, provided that any Customer orders ranked ahead of the DOMM are satisfied first. However, if the DOMM is not at the NBBO, the order will be allocated as if it were not a Directed Order. The Exchange is proposing new Rule 6.62(z) to define Directed Orders, and also new Rule 6.1A(a)(20) to define Directed Order Market Maker and 6.1A(a)(21) to define Order Flow Provider. Lastly, the Exchange is proposing to modify Rule 6.82(d)(2)—Guaranteed Participation, to clarify that LMMs are entitled to a trade allocation in accordance with Rule 6.76A, and that LMMs are not entitled to any guaranteed allocation on Directed Orders that trade with a Directed Order Market Maker. If the DOMM is not quoting at the NBBO, but the LMM’s quote is at the NBBO, the LMM will be entitled to a trade allocation in accordance with Rule 6.76A. The LLM will be entitled to the same allocation as currently applicable under Rule 6.76A. The trade allocation described in Rule 6.76A is structured so that no order will be subject to a guaranteed allocation greater than 40% of its size after satisfying any Customer orders ranked ahead of any guaranteed recipient. Additionally, it would be considered a violation of just and equitable principals of trade and a misuse of non-public information for a Directed Order Market Maker to become aware of an impending Directed Order so as to improve the quote to momentarily match the NBBO, and then worsen the price of the quote following execution of the Directed Order. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act 4 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act, in that it is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, remove impediments to and perfect the mechanisms of a free and open market and a national market system and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest, as it will provide greater incentive for Directed Order Market Makers to quote at the NBBO, and thereby provide a more competitive market structure for investors in general. 4 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:55 Aug 14, 2009 Jkt 217001 B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will 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 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 Because the foregoing proposed rule change: (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 from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 5 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) thereunder.6 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission may summarily abrogate such 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.
