Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and the Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1.

Purpose The Exchange proposes to add a routing strategy, LIST, that will provide firms flexibility to participate in the opening and closing processes of the primary listing markets and also take advantage of the Exchange’s liquidity during the remainder of the trading day. LIST is a variation on a currently existing routing strategy, SKIP, but offers increased sensitivity to the opening and closing crosses on securities’ primary listing markets. Under LIST, an order received before the security’s primary listing market opening will participate in the primary listing market’s opening cross, after which any unexecuted shares will check the NASDAQ book. The security’s primary listing market is considered ‘‘open’’ after the first of the following occurs: (1) The primary listing market returns the order; (2) NASDAQ receives the first regular way print from the primary; or (3) the time is 9:45 a.m. Remaining shares will then be routed to Reg-NMS protected market centers in accordance with the LIST System routing table,4 and then return to be posted on the NASDAQ book.5 Similarly, LIST orders entered after the primary listing market’s opening process but prior to 3:58 p.m. will check the NASDAQ book, route in accordance 4 As provided, in Rule 4758(a)(1)(A), the term ‘‘System routing table’’ refers to the proprietary process for determining the specific trading venues to which the System routes orders and the order in which it routes them. NASDAQ reserves the right to maintain a different System routing table for different routing options and to modify the System routing table at any time without notice. 5 Pursuant to NASDAQ Rule 4758(a)(1)(B), if a routed order is returned, in whole or in part, that order will receive a new time stamp reflecting the time of its return to the System.
