Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The CHX proposes to amend its Schedule of Participant Fees and Assessments (the ‘‘Fee Schedule’’), effective July 25, 2011, to amend its Fee Schedule to clarify the application of the Fee Schedule to certain transactions of, and services to, CHX Participants and make certain rate changes. The text of this proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site at https:// www.chx.com/rules/proposed_rules.htm and in the Commission’s Public Reference Room. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES July 25, 2011. Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on July 20, 2011, the Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc. (‘‘CHX’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange.

Purpose Through this filing, the Exchange is proposing to amend its Schedule of Fees and Assessments (‘‘Fee Schedule’’) to clarify the application of the Fee Schedule to various transactions consummated on or through the Exchange and to certain services provided by the Exchange to its Participants. The proposed changes accurately describe the manner in which the Exchange has and will PO 00000 Frm 00123 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 continue to apply the Fee Schedule to such transactions and services. Currently, the Fee Schedule provides for Processing Fees for fingerprinting, background checks and the provision of access badges by the Exchange.5 The Exchange no longer provides either fingerprinting or background checking services for current or prospective CHX Participants, and we no longer wish to impose a fee for access badges. Therefore, the Exchange proposes to eliminate the fees for these services. The Exchange is also clarifying the application of Section E.1. (Matching System single-sided order executions (one-sided orders of 100+ shares)) of the Fee Schedule to note that the Average Daily Volume (‘‘ADV’’) calculations performed by the Exchange to determine the amount of provide credit paid to a Participant are not being performed when the Regular Trading Session closes early.6 Trade volume on days on which the Late Trading Sessions close early, however, would continue to be counted towards the ADV calculation. In addition, we are eliminating the provide credit paid to Exchangeregistered Institutional Brokers (‘‘Institutional Brokers’’) in transactions in securities priced less than one dollar. As noted in the discussion of the changes to Section E.3. of the Fee Schedule, supra, we are proposing to eliminate the charge in transactions in securities priced less than one dollar to Participants which submit orders through an Institutional Broker. It would not be economically feasible for the Exchange to continue to pay a provide credit to Institutional Brokers in transactions in which the Exchange 5 Section C. (Registration Fees) of the Fee Schedule. 6 The Exchange proposes to change the phrase ‘‘single order executions’’ in the caption to Section E.1, to ‘‘single-sided order executions’’ to clarify that this section does not apply to cross orders.
