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 May 12, 2011, NYSE Arca, Inc. (the ‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘NYSE Arca’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). 2 15 U.S.C. 78a. 3 17 CFR 240.19b–4. 20:04 May 25, 2011 I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to amend its rules to remove the concept of an ‘‘Odd Lot Dealer.’’ The text of the proposed rule change is available at the Exchange, the Commission’s Public Reference Room, http://www.nyse.com, and the Commission’s Web site at http:// www.sec.gov. 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 NYSE Arca Equities proposes to amend its rules to remove the concept of an Odd Lot Dealer. An Odd Lot Dealer is any Market Maker who has agreed to buy and sell securities in odd lots (i.e., orders less than 100 shares) at the Best Protected Bid and the Best Protected Offer throughout the duration of Core Trading Hours and who is registered as an Odd Lot Dealer in accordance with NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.25. Before August 13, 2009, the Exchange charged $0.03 per share for odd lot orders executed against orders residing in the book in Tape A and Tape B securities, and $0.0035 per share for Tape C securities and paid a $0.02 per share credit to Market Makers that executed against an odd lot order.4 The Exchange also had odd lot pricing associated with odd lots routed to different market centers.5 As of August 4 See Exchange Act Release No. 60495 (Aug. 13, 2009), 74 FR 41957 (August 19, 2009) (SR– NYSEArca–2009–72). 5 Id. at 41958. 1 15 VerDate Mar<15>2010 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. Jkt 223001 PO 00000 Frm 00108 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30745 13, 2009, the Exchange eliminated this differential odd lot pricing structure and thereafter charged and credited ETP Holders executing odd lots in the same way that it charged and credited them for round-lot executions, thereby simplifying the Exchange’s fee structure.6 Thereafter, in November 2009, the Exchange eliminated the requirement that for each security in which a Market Maker was registered as a Lead Market Maker (‘‘LMM’’), the LMM also was required to register as an Odd Lot Dealer in that security.7 Thereafter, LMMs could choose to register as an Odd Lot Dealer, but were not be required to do so. Since March 2010, no Market Maker has maintained a registration as an Odd Lot Dealer. Because (1) Exchange systems can process odd lot orders and they are treated the same as round lot and mixed lot orders for purposes of ranking and execution, (2) there is no financial incentives or requirements to act as an Odd Lot Dealer, and (3) there currently is no ETP Holder acting as an Odd Lot Dealer, the Exchange believes that it is appropriate to eliminate the concept of Odd Lot Dealer from its rules. As such, the proposed rule change eliminates the description of an Odd Lot Dealer (or references to rules relating to Odd Lot Dealers) and make conforming changes in NYSE Arca Equities Rules 1.1, 7.25, 7.31, 7.38, 10.12 and 10.13.8 In addition, the Exchange proposes to delete Rule 7.38(c) which prohibits ETP Holders from: (i) Combining odd lot orders given by different customers into a round lot order or orders unless specifically requested to do so by the customers giving the orders; (ii) unbundling round lots for the purpose of entering odd lot limit orders in comparable amounts; (iii) failing to aggregate odd lot orders into round lots when such orders are for the same account or for various accounts in which there is a common monetary interest; and (iv) entering both buy and sell odd lot limit orders in the same stock before one of the orders is executed for the purpose of capturing the spread in the stock. The Exchange proposes to delete these requirements because the issues associated with such odd lot orders are moot now that the Exchange’s systems can process odd lot orders in the same manner as round lot 6 Id. 7 See Exchange Act Release No. 61025 (November 18, 2009), 74 FR 61726 (November 25, 2009) (SR– NYSEArca–2009–102). 8 To add clarity, Rule 7.37 also would be amended to provide that round lot, mixed lot and odd lot orders shall be treated in the same manner in the NYSE Arca Marketplace.
