Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) 1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’) 2 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,3 notice is hereby given that, on December 9, 2010, NYSE Arca, Inc. (the ‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘NYSE Arca’’) 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 self-regulatory organization. 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 srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES The Exchange proposes to amend NYSE Arca Options Rule 5.3(j) to: (1) Permit trading options on leveraged (multiple or inverse) exchange-traded notes, and (2) broaden the definition of ‘‘Futures-Linked Securities [sic]. The text of the proposed rule change is available at the Exchange, the Commission’s Public Reference Room, and http://www.nyse.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 self-regulatory organization included statements concerning the purpose of, U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). U.S.C. 78a et seq. 3 17 CFR 240.19b–4. 2 15 VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:40 Dec 20, 2010 Jkt 223001 4 The amendments proposed herein are similar to changes approved for the Chicago Board Options Exchange (‘‘CBOE’’). See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 63202 (October 28, 2010), 75 FR 67794 (November 3, 2010) (SR–CBOE–2010–080). 5 These ETNs include the Barclays Short B Leveraged Inverse S&P 500 TR ETN (‘‘BXDB’’), the Barclays Short C Leveraged Inverse S&P 500 TR ETN (‘‘BXDC’’) and the Barclays Short D Leveraged Inverse S&P 500 TR ETN (‘‘BXDD’’). A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change BILLING CODE 7590–01–P 1 15 Leveraged ETN Options The Exchange proposes to amend NYSE Arca Options Rule 5.3(j) to permit the listing of options on leveraged (multiple or inverse) ETNs. Multiple leveraged ETNs seek to provide investment results that correspond to a specified multiple of the percentage performance on a given day of a particular Reference Asset. Inverse leveraged ETNs seek to provide investment results that correspond to the inverse (opposite) of the percentage performance on a given day of a particular Reference Asset by a specified multiple. Multiple leveraged ETNs and inverse leveraged ETNs differ from traditional ETNs in that they do not merely correspond to the performance of a given Reference Asset, but rather attempt to match a multiple or inverse of a Reference Asset’s performance. The Barclays Long B Leveraged S&P 500 TR ETN (‘‘BXUB’’), the Barclays Long C Leveraged S&P 500 TR ETN (‘‘BXUC’’), and the UBS AG 2x Monthly Leveraged Long Exchange-Traded Access Securities (E–TRACS) linked to the Alerian MLP Infrastructure Index due July 9, 2040 (‘‘MLPL’’) currently trade on the NYSE Arca equity platform and are examples of multiple leveraged ETNs. In addition, the Barclays ETN + Inverse S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures ETN (‘‘XXV’’) currently trades on the NYSE Arca equity platform and is an example of an inverse leveraged ETN. The NYSE Arca equity platform also lists several other inverse leveraged ETNs for trading.5 Currently, NYSE Arca Options Rule 5.3 provides that securities deemed appropriate for options trading shall include shares or other securities (‘‘Equity Index-Linked Securities,’’ ‘‘Commodity-Linked Securities,’’ ‘‘Currency-Linked Securities,’’ ‘‘Fixed Income Index-Linked Securities,’’ ‘‘Futures-Linked Securities,’’ and ‘‘Multifactor Index-Linked Securities,’’ collectively known as ‘‘Index-Linked Securities’’), as defined in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 5.2(j)(6), that are principally traded on a national securities exchange and an ‘‘NMS stock’’ (as defined in Rule 600 of Regulation NMS under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934), and represent ownership of a security that provides for the payment at maturity, as described below: • Equity Index-Linked Securities are securities that provide for the payment at maturity of a cash amount based on the performance of an underlying index or indexes of equity securities (‘‘Equity Reference Asset’’); • Commodity-Linked Securities are securities that provide for the payment at maturity of a cash amount based on the performance of one or more physical commodities or commodity futures, options on commodities, or other commodity derivatives or CommodityBased Trust Shares or a basket or index of any of the foregoing (‘‘Commodity Reference Asset’’); • Currency-Linked Securities are securities that provide for the payment at maturity of a cash amount based on the performance of one or more currencies, or options on currencies or currency futures or other currency derivatives or Currency Trust Shares (as defined in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.202(c)), or a basket or index of any 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. 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to amend NYSE Arca Options Rule 5.3(j) to: (1) Permit trading options on leveraged (multiple or inverse) exchange-traded notes (‘‘ETNs’’), and (2) broaden the definition of ‘‘Futures-Linked Securities.’’ 4 ETNs are also known as ‘‘Index-Linked Securities,’’ which are designed for investors who desire to participate in a specific market segment by providing exposure to one or more identifiable underlying securities, commodities, currencies, derivative instruments, or market indexes of the foregoing. Index-Linked Securities are the nonconvertible debt of an issuer that have a term of at least one (1) year but not greater than thirty (30) years. Despite the fact that Index-Linked Securities are linked to an underlying index, each trade as a single exchangelisted security. Accordingly, rules pertaining to the listing and trading of standard equity options apply to IndexLinked Securities. PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\21DEN1.SGM 21DEN1
