Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on August 31, 2011, the International Securities Exchange, LLC (the ‘‘Exchange’’ or the ‘‘ISE’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I and II below, which items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to adopt a new market data offering called the ISE Real-time Implied Volatilities and Greeks Feed. The proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site http://www.ise.com, at the principal office of the Exchange, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II.

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 purpose of this proposed rule change is to adopt a new market data offering called the ISE Real-time Implied Volatilities and Greeks Feed (the ‘‘ISE Feed’’). The ISE Feed delivers real-time implied volatilities and risk parameters (also referred to as ‘‘Greeks’’) for American style equity, index and ETF options. This information is used to track an option’s price relative to changes in volatility and the underlying security’s price, which affects the theoretical price of an option. The risk parameters are useful for delta neutral option execution and monitoring an option’s time premium decay. The ISE Feed is also useful for investing and hedging strategies such as placing orders based on changes in levels of volatility. The ISE Feed includes real-time implied volatilities for the bid, ask and mid-point price as well as delta, gamma, vega, theta and rho for each option series. The ISE Feed is a low latency feed that produces data for the entire universe of U.S. options disseminated by the Options Price Reporting Authority (OPRA). The Exchange believes the ISE Feed provides valuable information that can help users make informed investment decisions. The Exchange will make the ISE Feed available to both members and nonmembers on a subscription basis later this year and will submit a separate proposal to establish fees for this market data offering. 2. Basis ISE believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of Section 6 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’),3 in general and with Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,4 in particular in that it is designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, settling, processing information with 4 17 1 15 PO 00000 Frm 00103 Fmt 4703 3 15 4 15 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\14SEN1.SGM U.S.C. 78f.

In adopting Regulation NMS, the Commission granted self-regulatory organizations and broker-dealers increased authority and flexibility to offer new and unique market data to the public. It was believed that this authority would expand the amount of data available to consumers, and also spur innovation and competition for the provision of market data. ISE believes that this proposal is in keeping with those principles by promoting increased transparency through the dissemination of more useful proprietary data and also by clarifying its availability to market participants. Additionally, ISE is making a voluntary decision to make this data available. ISE is not required by the Act in the first instance to make the data available, unlike the best bid and offer which must be made available under the Act. ISE chooses to make the data available as proposed in order to improve market quality, to attract order flow, and to increase transparency. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition ISE 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. The Exchange believes that the ISE Feed will help attract new users and new order flow to the Exchange, thereby improving the Exchange’s ability to compete in the market for options order flow and executions. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES C.

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 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 purpose of this proposed rule change is to adopt a new market 
data offering called the ISE Real-time Implied Volatilities and Greeks 
Feed (the ``ISE Feed''). The ISE Feed delivers real-time implied 
volatilities and risk parameters (also referred to as ``Greeks'') for 
American style equity, index and ETF options. This information is used 
to track an option's price relative to changes in volatility and the 
underlying security's price, which affects the theoretical price of an 
option. The risk parameters are useful for delta neutral option 
execution and monitoring an option's time premium decay. The ISE Feed 
is also useful for investing and hedging strategies such as placing 
orders based on changes in levels of volatility.
    The ISE Feed includes real-time implied volatilities for the bid, 
ask and mid-point price as well as delta, gamma, vega, theta and rho 
for each option series. The ISE Feed is a low latency feed that 
produces data for the entire universe of U.S. options disseminated by 
the Options Price Reporting Authority (OPRA). The Exchange believes the 
ISE Feed provides valuable information that can help users make 
informed investment decisions. The Exchange will make the ISE Feed 
available to both members and non-members on a subscription basis later 
this year and will submit a separate proposal to establish fees for 
this market data offering.
 2. Basis
    ISE believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the 
provisions of Section 6 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the 
``Act''),\3\ in general and with Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,\4\ in 
particular in that it is designed to prevent fraudulent and 
manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable 
principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with

    \4\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In adopting Regulation NMS, the Commission granted self-regulatory 
organizations and broker-dealers increased authority and flexibility to 
offer new and unique market data to the public. It was believed that 
this authority would expand the amount of data available to consumers, 
and also spur innovation and competition for the provision of market 
data. ISE believes that this proposal is in keeping with those 
principles by promoting increased transparency through the 
dissemination of more useful proprietary data and also by clarifying 
its availability to market participants.
    Additionally, ISE is making a voluntary decision to make this data 
available. ISE is not required by the Act in the first instance to make 
the data available, unlike the best bid and offer which must be made 
available under the Act. ISE chooses to make the data available as 
proposed in order to improve market quality, to attract order flow, and 
to increase transparency.

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    ISE 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. The Exchange believes that the 
ISE Feed will help attract new users and new order flow to the 
Exchange, thereby improving the Exchange's ability to compete in the 
market for options order flow and executions.

C. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Comments on the Proposed 
Rule Change Received From Members, Participants or Others

    The Exchange has not solicited, and does not intend to solicit, 
comments on this proposed rule change. The Exchange has not received 
any unsolicited written comments from members or other interested 
parties.

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    The Exchange has filed the proposed rule change pursuant to Section 
19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act \5\ and Rule 19b-4(f)(6) thereunder.\6\ 
Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not significantly 
affect the protection of investors or the public interest, does not 
impose any significant burden on competition, and, by its terms, does 
not become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, 
or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become 
effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \7\ and Rule 19b-
4(f)(6) \8\ thereunder.\9\

regulatory organization to give the Commission written notice of its
