Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 104 / Tuesday, May 31, 2011 / Notices The Exchange is also proposing to make other technical amendments to the Fee Schedule to renumber Sections VIII through XI to account for the elimination of the Market Access Provider Subsidy section. The Exchange is proposing to eliminate the MAP Subsidy, and not offer any such subsidy as of June 1, 2011. b. Statutory Basis The [sic] believes that its proposal to amend its Fee Schedule is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act 9 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(4) of the Act 10 in particular, in that it is an equitable allocation of reasonable fees and other charges among Exchange members. The MAP Subsidy was designed to allow MAPs to offer their customers a customized interface and provide those customers support for such an interface. The Exchange pays a MAP Subsidy to incentivize MAPs to bring order flow to the Exchange. The Exchange believes that eliminating the MAP Subsidy is reasonable because the Exchange no longer desires to incentivize member organizations by offering such a subsidy. The Exchange also believes the proposal is equitable because it would no longer offer such a MAP Subsidy to any market participant. 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 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 either solicited or received. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES III.

The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The self-regulatory organization has prepared 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 Change mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 1. Purpose The Exchange has developed an enhanced technology trading platform (the ‘‘Optimise platform’’). To assure a smooth transition, the Exchange is in the process of migrating option classes from its current trading system to the Optimise platform.3 The Optimise platform offers members the same trading functionality as the current trading system with some enhancements, several of which were previously added to the ISE’s rules.4 The purpose of this rule filing is to specify in the Exchange’s rules that complex orders may be entered into the Price Improvement Mechanism for options classes traded on the Optimise platform. The Exchange’s Facilitation Mechanism has been available for the execution of complex orders since 2005 5 and the Solicited Order Mechanism has been available for the execution of complex orders since 2006.6 Both of the mechanisms expose orders to all exchange members for one second to provide an opportunity for price improvement. Supplementary Material .08 to Rule 716 specifies that members may use the Facilitation Mechanism and the Solicited Order Mechanism to execute complex orders at a net price. The complex orders are processed in the mechanisms at the net price in the same manner as singlelegged orders. With respect to the bids and offers for the individual legs of a complex order entered into the mechanisms, the priority rules for complex orders contained in Rule 3 Options classes are being transferred from the current trading platform to the Optimise trading platform. The same options cannot trade on both systems at the same time. 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 63117 (October 15, 2010), 75 FR 65042 (October 21, 2010) (SR–ISE–2010–101); and Securities Exchange Act Release No. 64275 (April 8, 2011), 76 FR 21087 (April 14, 2011) (File No. SR–ISE–2011–24). 5 Securities Exchange Act Release No. 52327 (August 24, 2005), 70 FR 51854 (August 31, 2005) (File No. SR–ISE–2004–33). 6 Securities Exchange Act Release No. 53729 (April 26, 2006), 71 FR 26154 (May 3, 2006) (File No. SR–ISE–2006–14). VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:27 May 27, 2011 Jkt 223001 722(b)(2) continue to apply. If an improved net price for the complex order being executed can be achieved from bids and offers for the individual legs of the complex order in the Exchange’s auction market, the order being executed will receive an execution at the better net price. The Price Improvement Mechanism works in the same basic manner as the Facilitation Mechanism and the Solicited Order Mechanism, exposing orders to all members for one second to provide an opportunity for price improvement. The Exchange proposes to make the Price Improvement Mechanism available for the execution of complex orders on the Optimise platform by adding Supplementary Material .10 to Rule 723. Proposed Supplementary Material .10 to Rule 723 specifies that members may use the Price Improvement Mechanism to execute complex orders at a net price. The complex orders are processed in the mechanisms at the net price in the same manner as single-legged orders. With respect to the bids and offers for the individual legs of a complex order entered into the mechanisms, the priority rules for complex orders contained in Rule 722(b)(2) continue to apply. If an improved net price for the complex order being executed can be achieved from bids and offers for the individual legs of the complex order in the Exchange’s auction market, the order being executed will receive an execution at the better net price.7 Rule 723(b)(1) requires that orders entered into the Price Improvement Mechanism be entered at a price that is better than the ISE best bid or offer and equal to or better than the national best bid or offer, and Supplementary Material .08 to Rule 723 provides an exception to this requirement. Proposed Supplementary Material .10 to Rule 723 specifies that Complex orders must be entered at a price that is better than the best net price (i) available on the complex order book; and (ii) achievable from the best ISE bids and offers for the individual legs (an ‘‘improved net price’’). It also specifies that Supplementary Material .08 is not applicable to the entry of complex orders; complex orders will be rejected unless they are entered at an improved net price. Proposed Supplementary Material .10 further specifies that all references to the national best bid and offer in Rule 723 and the Supplementary Material thereto are 7 The Exchange provides the Commission with monthly statistics related to PIM order execution. These statistics will include Complex Orders executed through the PIM. PO 00000 Frm 00092 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 inapplicable. Finally, Rule 723(c)(5) specifies that the exposure period will automatically terminate upon the receipt of certain orders. Proposed Supplementary Material .10 specifies that the provisions of Rule 723(c)(5) shall apply with respect to the receipt of complex orders during the exposure period, and not to the receipt of orders for the individual legs of the complex order. Accordingly, the exposure period will not automatically terminate due to the receipt of orders for the individual legs of the complex order during the exposure period. As mentioned previously, if at the end of the exposure period an improved net price for the complex order can be achieved from bids and offers for the individual legs of the complex order, the order will be executed against such bids and offers. 2. Statutory Basis The basis under the Act for this proposed rule change is found in Section 6(b)(5),8 in that the proposed change will serve to 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. The proposed rule change will make an existing service available to an additional order type. By making the Price Improvement Mechanism available for complex orders, members will be given an additional way in which they can seek price improvement for their customers when executing complex orders on the Exchange. Moreover, the Proposal assures that the existing priority rules applicable to the execution of complex orders is maintained and automatically enforced by the system. B.

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of Substance 
of the Proposed Rule Change

    The Exchange proposes to specify in its rules that complex orders 
may be entered into the Price Improvement Mechanism for options classes 
traded on its Optimise platform. The text of the proposed rule change 
is available on the Exchange's Web site http://www.ise.com, at the 
principal office of the Exchange, at the Commission's Public Reference 
Room, and on 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 Exchange included statements 
concerning the purpose of, and basis for,

[[Page 31386]]

the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the 
proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at 
the places specified in Item IV below. The self-regulatory organization 
has prepared 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 Change

1. Purpose
    The Exchange has developed an enhanced technology trading platform 
(the ``Optimise platform''). To assure a smooth transition, the 
Exchange is in the process of migrating option classes from its current 
trading system to the Optimise platform.\3\ The Optimise platform 
offers members the same trading functionality as the current trading 
system with some enhancements, several of which were previously added 
to the ISE's rules.\4\ The purpose of this rule filing is to specify in 
the Exchange's rules that complex orders may be entered into the Price 
Improvement Mechanism for options classes traded on the Optimise 
platform.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Options classes are being transferred from the current 
trading platform to the Optimise trading platform. The same options 
cannot trade on both systems at the same time.
    \4\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 63117 (October 15, 
2010), 75 FR 65042 (October 21, 2010) (SR-ISE-2010-101); and 
Securities Exchange Act Release No. 64275 (April 8, 2011), 76 FR 
21087 (April 14, 2011) (File No. SR-ISE-2011-24).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange's Facilitation Mechanism has been available for the 
execution of complex orders since 2005 \5\ and the Solicited Order 
Mechanism has been available for the execution of complex orders since 
2006.\6\ Both of the mechanisms expose orders to all exchange members 
for one second to provide an opportunity for price improvement. 
Supplementary Material .08 to Rule 716 specifies that members may use 
the Facilitation Mechanism and the Solicited Order Mechanism to execute 
complex orders at a net price. The complex orders are processed in the 
mechanisms at the net price in the same manner as single-legged orders. 
With respect to the bids and offers for the individual legs of a 
complex order entered into the mechanisms, the priority rules for 
complex orders contained in Rule 722(b)(2) continue to apply. If an 
improved net price for the complex order being executed can be achieved 
from bids and offers for the individual legs of the complex order in 
the Exchange's auction market, the order being executed will receive an 
execution at the better net price.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ Securities Exchange Act Release No. 52327 (August 24, 2005), 
70 FR 51854 (August 31, 2005) (File No. SR-ISE-2004-33).
    \6\ Securities Exchange Act Release No. 53729 (April 26, 2006), 
71 FR 26154 (May 3,
    2006) (File No. SR-ISE-2006-14).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Price Improvement Mechanism works in the same basic manner as 
the Facilitation Mechanism and the Solicited Order Mechanism, exposing 
orders to all members for one second to provide an opportunity for 
price improvement. The Exchange proposes to make the Price Improvement 
Mechanism available for the execution of complex orders on the Optimise 
platform by adding Supplementary Material .10 to Rule 723. Proposed 
Supplementary Material .10 to Rule 723 specifies that members may use 
the Price Improvement Mechanism to execute complex orders at a net 
price. The complex orders are processed in the mechanisms at the net 
price in the same manner as single-legged orders. With respect to the 
bids and offers for the individual legs of a complex order entered into 
the mechanisms, the priority rules for complex orders contained in Rule 
722(b)(2) continue to apply. If an improved net price for the complex 
order being executed can be achieved from bids and offers for the 
individual legs of the complex order in the Exchange's auction market, 
the order being executed will receive an execution at the better net 
price.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ The Exchange provides the Commission with monthly statistics 
related to PIM order execution. These statistics will include 
Complex Orders executed through the PIM.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Rule 723(b)(1) requires that orders entered into the Price 
Improvement Mechanism be entered at a price that is better than the ISE 
best bid or offer and equal to or better than the national best bid or 
offer, and Supplementary Material .08 to Rule 723 provides an exception 
to this requirement. Proposed Supplementary Material .10 to Rule 723 
specifies that Complex orders must be entered at a price that is better 
than the best net price (i) available on the complex order book; and 
(ii) achievable from the best ISE bids and offers for the individual 
legs (an ``improved net price''). It also specifies that Supplementary 
Material .08 is not applicable to the entry of complex orders; complex 
orders will be rejected unless they are entered at an improved net 
price. Proposed Supplementary Material .10 further specifies that all 
references to the national best bid and offer in Rule 723 and the 
Supplementary Material thereto are inapplicable. Finally, Rule 
723(c)(5) specifies that the exposure period will automatically 
terminate upon the receipt of certain orders. Proposed Supplementary 
Material .10 specifies that the provisions of Rule 723(c)(5) shall 
apply with respect to the receipt of complex orders during the exposure 
period, and not to the receipt of orders for the individual legs of the 
complex order. Accordingly, the exposure period will not automatically 
terminate due to the receipt of orders for the individual legs of the 
complex order during the exposure period. As mentioned previously, if 
at the end of the exposure period an improved net price for the complex 
order can be achieved from bids and offers for the individual legs of 
the complex order, the order will be executed against such bids and 
offers.
2. Statutory Basis
    The basis under the Act for this proposed rule change is found in 
Section 6(b)(5),\8\ in that the proposed change will serve to 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. The proposed rule change will make an existing service 
available to an additional order type. By making the Price Improvement 
Mechanism available for complex orders, members will be given an 
additional way in which they can seek price improvement for their 
customers when executing complex orders on the Exchange. Moreover, the 
Proposal assures that the existing priority rules applicable to the 
execution of complex orders is maintained and automatically enforced by 
the system.

    The proposed rule change does not 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
