Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change NASDAQ is filing with the Commission a proposal to introduce a bulk-quoting interface for NASDAQ market makers that will help them meet their obligations as market makers and to provide liquidity to the market in an efficient manner. 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 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 NASDAQ currently offers an orderbased market making interface on its options trading platform (‘‘NOM’’). Market makers use this interface to provide a two-sided quotation on NOM. Since it is an order-based interface, a two-sided quotation requires the entry of both a buy and a sell order. As part of several technological enhancements NASDAQ plans to implement on NOM, NASDAQ proposes to introduce a bulk-quoting interface for market makers in order to offer an additional market making interface choice to NASDAQ market makers. The proposed bulk-quoting market making interface will be used by market makers to submit and update their quotations in the marketplace much like the current order-based interface is used today. The bulk-quoting interface, however, allows market makers to provide both a bid and an offer in one message. In addition, the bulk-quoting interface allows market makers to bundle several quote updates into one bulk message. This is a useful feature for market makers that provide quotations in many different options. Furthermore, the bulk-quoting market making interface includes certain data elements (described below) which E:\FR\FM\09AUN1.SGM 09AUN1
