CFR 240.19b–4. 3 As defined in Exchange Rule 1.5(n). PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and the Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to lower the default 4 rebate at the top of its fee schedule for adding liquidity in securities at or above $1.00 on EDGX from a rebate of $0.0023 per share to a rebate of $0.0021 per share. This change will also be reflected in the following added liquidity flags: Flags B, V, Y, 3, and 4. The Exchange notes that Members will still qualify for all tiered rebates, as discussed in Footnotes 1, 2, or 13 on the Exchange’s fee schedule.5 The Exchange proposes to increase the default rate for removing liquidity from EDGX in securities priced below $1 from 0.10% of the dollar value of the transaction to 0.30% of the dollar value of the transaction.6 As a result of the increase in rate, all flags that remove liquidity from the EDGX Book in securities priced less than $1.00 would be assessed a fee of 0.30% of the dollar value of the transaction. These include Flags N, W, 6, BB, MT, PI, PR, and ZR.7 For customer internalization, which occurs when two orders presented to the Exchange from the same Member (i.e., MPID) are presented separately and not in a paired manner, but nonetheless inadvertently match with one another,8 the Exchange currently charges $0.00035 per share per side of an execution (for adding liquidity and for removing liquidity) for Flags EA, ER, and 5. This charge occurs in lieu of the standard or tiered rebate/removal rates. Therefore, Members currently incur a total transaction cost of $0.0007 per share for both sides of an execution for customer internalization. In SR–EDGX–2011–13,9 the Exchange represented that it ‘‘will work promptly to ensure that the internalization fee is 4 ‘‘Default’’ refers to the standard rebated provided to Members for orders that add liquidity to the Exchange absent Members qualifying for additional volume tiered pricing. The Exchange notes that Members may qualify for a higher rebate than the default rebate if they satisfy the volume tier requirements outlined in Footnotes 1, 2, or 13. 5 References herein to ‘‘Footnotes’’ refer only to footnotes on the Exchange’s fee schedule and not to footnotes within the current filing. 6 This fee is consistent with the limitations of Regulation NMS, SEC Rule 610(c), for securities with a price of less than $1.00. 7 The Exchange notes that the rates in the table of flags on its fee schedule all apply to orders in securities priced $1 and over and therefore, no amendment is necessary to the rates displayed on this table at this time. 8 Members are advised to consult Rule 12.2 respecting fictitious trading. 9 See Securities Exchange Release No. 64452 (May 10, 2011), 76 FR 28110, 28111 (May 13, 2011) (SR– EDGX–2011–13).
