NYSE Arca also believes that the higher rebates would incent liquidity, and such increased volume increases potential revenue to the Exchange, allowing the Exchange to pass on the savings to members in the form of a higher rebate. Similar to the Baseline Month approach, NASDAQ and EDGX have established credits and fees which are based on increased volumes from a previous month baseline.6 Finally, the Exchange notes that it operates in a highly competitive market in which market participants can readily favor competing venues if they deem fee levels at a particular venue to be excessive. In such an environment, the Exchange must continually adjust its fees to remain competitive with other exchanges and with alternative trading systems that have been exempted from compliance with the statutory standards applicable to exchanges. The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change reflects this competitive environment because it will broaden the conditions under which members may qualify for higher liquidity provider credits. 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.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The purpose of the proposed rule change is to more accurately reflect the priority of routed orders in Rule 1080. Currently, Rule 1080(m) governs the routing of orders on the Exchange and describes when orders are routed. Specifically, it provides that the System will route only customer FIND and SRCH Orders with no other contingencies, that IOC Orders will be cancelled immediately if not executed and will not be routed and that eligible orders can be designated as either available for routing or not available for routing. Customer FIND and SRCH Orders, as defined in Rule 1080(m)(iv), designated as available for routing will first be checked by the System for available contracts for potential execution. After checking the System for available contracts, orders are sent to other available market centers for potential execution. When checking the book, the System will seek to execute at the price at which it would send the order to a destination market center. In situations where the Exchange’s disseminated bid or offer is inferior to the NBBO price, the System will contemporaneously: (i) Route an order marked as an ISO to each away market disseminating prices better than the Exchange’s price, for the lesser of: (a) The disseminated size of such away markets, or (b) the order size and, (ii) if order size remains after such routing, trade at the Exchange’s disseminated bid or offer up to its disseminated size. If contracts still remain unexecuted after routing, they are posted on the book. Once on the book, should the order subsequently be locked or crossed by another market center, the System will not route the order to the locking or crossing market center, except as specified in Rule 1080(m). Because the System routes the lesser of the disseminated size of the away markets or the order size, it is possible for part of an order to be routed, with a portion of the order remaining on the Exchange. Respecting the part of an order that is routed (‘‘routed order’’), that order can either be executed in full, in part or not at all on the destination exchange. Currently, Rule 1080(m)(i) describes the priority of routed orders as follows: orders sent to other markets do not VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:14 Jul 11, 2011 Jkt 223001 retain time priority with respect to other orders in the System and the System shall continue to execute other orders while routed orders are away at another market center. It further provides that once routed by the System, an order becomes subject to the rules and procedures of the destination market including, but not limited to, order cancellation. If a routed order is subsequently returned, in whole or in part, that order, or its remainder, shall receive a new time stamp reflecting the time of its return to the System. However, there is a situation where the order does not receive a new time stamp. Specifically, as described above, a routed order can be for less than the original incoming order’s size with a portion of the order remaining on the Exchange. If a routed order is subsequently returned, in whole or in part, that routed order, or its remainder, will not receive a new time stamp reflecting the time of its return to the System if any portion of the original order remains on the System when the routed order returns to the System, in which case the routed order shall retain its timestamp and its priority; specifically, the routed order, when returned, retains the timestamp and priority of the order which remains on the Exchange. The Exchange proposes to codify this in Rule 1080(m)(i). Where the original incoming order resides on the book when the routed order returns unexecuted or executed in part, the Exchange’s System does not treat the routed order as a new order but rather resumes treating it as part of the original incoming order, thereby retaining its original timestamp and priority, as though the unsuccessful routing had never occurred. The Exchange does not believe that this result is problematic or raises regulatory issues. In fact, in situations where a portion of an order remains on the Exchange and a portion is routed, the Exchange routes such order so as to execute it and comply with the regulatory requirements to avoid tradethroughs and locked and crossed markets. Various market conditions determine the destination(s) to which an order is routed, the portion of the order that should be routed, and whether or not the routed order results in an execution. Accordingly, the Exchange believes that its processes to route and timestamp routed orders, which are spelled out in its rules, are intended to make clear to market participants the various outcomes that result, depending on various market conditions. PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40977 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that its proposal is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act 3 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act 4 in particular, in that it is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general to protect investors and the public interest. By more accurately reflecting the priority of routed orders, the rules will be clearer; at the same time, the Exchange also believes that retaining the original timestamp on a partially routed order is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade and protect investors and the public interest, because maintaining the original order as a single order is the simplest method of handling the order, which should help entering firms manage their order flow. Respecting routable orders, market conditions, not the entering firm, determine whether the order is routed, and ultimately whether it is executed on the destination market, such that the Exchange believes that it is simpler and more logical to treat the unexecuted portion of a routed order together with the original order. In addition, retaining the original timestamp on a partially routed order does not disadvantage other orders on the book, because the partially routed order had time priority and is merely returning, in effect, to its original place in time priority on the book. The portion of the order that was not routed and remained on the book is available for execution; if it is executed in full before the routed portion returns to the Exchange, the returned, routed portion receives a new timestamp book. 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. III.

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

    The Exchange proposes to correct Rule 1080(m) to reflect the 
priority of routed orders that are not executed on the destination 
exchange, as described further below.
    The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange's

at the principal office of the Exchange, and at the Commission's Public 
Reference Room.

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 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 Exchange has prepared summaries, set

[[Page 40977]]

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 purpose of the proposed rule change is to more accurately 
reflect the priority of routed orders in Rule 1080. Currently, Rule 
1080(m) governs the routing of orders on the Exchange and describes 
when orders are routed. Specifically, it provides that the System will 
route only customer FIND and SRCH Orders with no other contingencies, 
that IOC Orders will be cancelled immediately if not executed and will 
not be routed and that eligible orders can be designated as either 
available for routing or not available for routing. Customer FIND and 
SRCH Orders, as defined in Rule 1080(m)(iv), designated as available 
for routing will first be checked by the System for available contracts 
for potential execution. After checking the System for available 
contracts, orders are sent to other available market centers for 
potential execution. When checking the book, the System will seek to 
execute at the price at which it would send the order to a destination 
market center.
    In situations where the Exchange's disseminated bid or offer is 
inferior to the NBBO price, the System will contemporaneously: (i) 
Route an order marked as an ISO to each away market disseminating 
prices better than the Exchange's price, for the lesser of: (a) The 
disseminated size of such away markets, or (b) the order size and, (ii) 
if order size remains after such routing, trade at the Exchange's 
disseminated bid or offer up to its disseminated size. If contracts 
still remain unexecuted after routing, they are posted on the book. 
Once on the book, should the order subsequently be locked or crossed by 
another market center, the System will not route the order to the 
locking or crossing market center, except as specified in Rule 1080(m).
    Because the System routes the lesser of the disseminated size of 
the away markets or the order size, it is possible for part of an order 
to be routed, with a portion of the order remaining on the Exchange. 
Respecting the part of an order that is routed (``routed order''), that 
order can either be executed in full, in part or not at all on the 
destination exchange.
    Currently, Rule 1080(m)(i) describes the priority of routed orders 
as follows: orders sent to other markets do not retain time priority 
with respect to other orders in the System and the System shall 
continue to execute other orders while routed orders are away at 
another market center. It further provides that once routed by the 
System, an order becomes subject to the rules and procedures of the 
destination market including, but not limited to, order cancellation. 
If a routed order is subsequently returned, in whole or in part, that 
order, or its remainder, shall receive a new time stamp reflecting the 
time of its return to the System.
    However, there is a situation where the order does not receive a 
new time stamp. Specifically, as described above, a routed order can be 
for less than the original incoming order's size with a portion of the 
order remaining on the Exchange. If a routed order is subsequently 
returned, in whole or in part, that routed order, or its remainder, 
will not receive a new time stamp reflecting the time of its return to 
the System if any portion of the original order remains on the System 
when the routed order returns to the System, in which case the routed 
order shall retain its timestamp and its priority; specifically, the 
routed order, when returned, retains the timestamp and priority of the 
order which remains on the Exchange. The Exchange proposes to codify 
this in Rule 1080(m)(i).
    Where the original incoming order resides on the book when the 
routed order returns unexecuted or executed in part, the Exchange's 
System does not treat the routed order as a new order but rather 
resumes treating it as part of the original incoming order, thereby 
retaining its original timestamp and priority, as though the 
unsuccessful routing had never occurred. The Exchange does not believe 
that this result is problematic or raises regulatory issues. In fact, 
in situations where a portion of an order remains on the Exchange and a 
portion is routed, the Exchange routes such order so as to execute it 
and comply with the regulatory requirements to avoid trade-throughs and 
locked and crossed markets. Various market conditions determine the 
destination(s) to which an order is routed, the portion of the order 
that should be routed, and whether or not the routed order results in 
an execution. Accordingly, the Exchange believes that its processes to 
route and timestamp routed orders, which are spelled out in its rules, 
are intended to make clear to market participants the various outcomes 
that result, depending on various market conditions.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that its proposal is consistent with Section 
6(b) of the Act \3\ in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 
6(b)(5) of the Act \4\ in particular, in that it is designed to promote 
just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and 
perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market 
system, and, in general to protect investors and the public interest. 
By more accurately reflecting the priority of routed orders, the rules 
will be clearer; at the same time, the Exchange also believes that 
retaining the original timestamp on a partially routed order is 
designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade and protect 
investors and the public interest, because maintaining the original 
order as a single order is the simplest method of handling the order, 
which should help entering firms manage their order flow. Respecting 
routable orders, market conditions, not the entering firm, determine 
whether the order is routed, and ultimately whether it is executed on 
the destination market, such that the Exchange believes that it is 
simpler and more logical to treat the unexecuted portion of a routed 
order together with the original order. In addition, retaining the 
original timestamp on a partially routed order does not disadvantage 
other orders on the book, because the partially routed order had time 
priority and is merely returning, in effect, to its original place in 
time priority on the book. The portion of the order that was not routed 
and remained on the book is available for execution; if it is executed 
in full before the routed portion returns to the Exchange, the 
returned, routed portion receives a new timestamp book.

furtherance of the purposes of the Act.

significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30

Commission may designate, it has become effective pursuant to

requires a self-regulatory organization to give the Commission 
written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change at 
least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed 
rule change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission. 
The Exchange has satisfied this requirement.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule 
change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend 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. If the Commission 
takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to 
determine whether the proposed rule should be approved or disapproved.

arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule
