The rule provides that a member’s proprietary order may be executed on the exchange of which the trader is a member, if, among other things: (1) The member discloses that a bid or offer for its account is for its account to any member with whom such bid or offer is placed or to whom it is communicated; (2) any such member through whom that bid or offer is communicated discloses to others participating in effecting the order that it is for the account of a member; and (3) immediately before executing the order, a member (other than a specialist in such security) presenting any order for the account of a member on the exchange clearly announces or otherwise indicates to the specialist and to other members then present that he is presenting an order for the account of a member. Without these requirements, it would not be possible for the Commission to monitor its mandate under the Exchange E:\FR\FM\20OCN1.SGM 20OCN1

respondent is $876 (1 response/respondent/year x $876 cost/response), 
for a total annual related cost to all respondents of $13,140 ($876 
cost/respondent x 15 respondents).
