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 December 27, 2012, the EDGA Exchange, Inc.

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 amend Rule 11.5(c), which describes the manner in which the NBBO Offset Peg Order operates. All of the changes described herein are applicable to EDGA Members. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Internet Web site at www.directedge.com, at the Exchange’s principal office, and at the Public Reference Room of the Commission. 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 self-regulatory organization 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 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 Exchange proposes to amend Rule 11.5(c), the NBBO Offset Peg Order. As described in the Exchange’s filing to create the NBBO Offset Peg Order,3 the NBBO Offset Peg Order enables Users 4 to submit buy and sell orders to the Exchange that are pegged to a designated percentage away from the National Best Bid (the ‘‘NBB’’) and National Best Offer (the ‘‘NBO’’, and together with the NBB, the ‘‘NBBO’’), respectively, while providing them full control over order origination and order marking. This retention of control, in turn, enables Market Makers to comply independently with the requirements of Regulation SHO 5 under the Securities 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 67960 (October 2, 2012), 77 FR 61463 (October 9, 2012) (SR–EDGA–2012–44). 4 As defined in Rule 1.5(ee). 5 17 CFR 242.200 through 242.204. PO 00000 Frm 00113 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2475 Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’) and Rule 15c3–5 6 under the Act (the ‘‘Market Access Rule’’). As described in the Exchange’s filing to create the NBBO Offset Peg Order: upon entry and at any time the price of the order reached the ‘Defined Limit’, or moved a specified number of percentage points away from the ‘Designated Percentage’ toward the then current NBB (for NBBO Offset Peg Orders to buy) or NBO (for NBBO Offset Peg Orders to sell), the price of the NBBO Offset Peg Order would be automatically adjusted by the System to the Designated Percentage away from the then current NBB or NBO, as the case may be. In the event that there was no NBB or NBO, the price of the NBBO Offset Peg Order would be automatically adjusted by the System to the Designated Percentage away from the last reported sale from the responsible single plan processor, unless the User instructed the Exchange upon entry to cancel or reject the order under such circumstances.7 The Exchange proposes to amend the text of Rule 11.5(c)(15) to not allow the User to cancel or reject the order under the circumstances outlined above. Therefore, the Exchange proposes to delete the following text in Rule 11.5(c)(15): ‘‘unless instructed by the User upon order entry to cancel or reject rather than adjust based on the last reported sale from the single plan processor.’’ The text of the rule will now read that: [u]pon reaching the Defined Limit (as defined in Rule 11.21(d)(2)(F)), the price of an NBBO Offset Peg Order bid or offer will be automatically adjusted by the System to the Designated Percentage away from the then current NBB or NBO, respectively, or if there is no NBB or NBO at such time, to the Designated Percentage away from the last reported sale from the responsible single plan processor. If an NBBO Offset Peg Order bid or offer moves a specified number of percentage points away from the Designated Percentage toward the then current NBB or NBO, the price of such bid or offer will be automatically adjusted by the System to the Designated Percentage away from the then current NBB and NBO. If there is no NBB or NBO at such time, the order will be automatically adjusted by the System to the Designated Percentage away from the last reported sale from the responsible single plan processor. Thus, when processing NBBO Offset Peg Orders, the System will not condition adjustment of the price upon the User’s instructions. The Exchange originally stated in SR– EDGA–2012–44 that it ‘‘intends to implement the proposed rule change on or about November 19, 2012, and will notify its Members and other market 6 17 CFR 242.15c3–5.

This additional time will enable the Exchange to assess the usefulness of the NBBO Offset Peg Order in light of the upcoming implementation of the National Market System Plan to Address Extraordinary Market Volatility (as amended, the ‘‘Plan’’) as approved by the Commission 9 and proposed changes to market making quoting requirements through uniform industry-wide amendments to Designated Percentages 10 and Defined Limits 11 to realign the percentages based on the Plan’s Appendix A Percentage Parameters. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act 12 and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,13 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 facilitating transactions in securities, and to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanisms of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. The Exchange believes that the proposed rule filing meets these requirements because it eliminates certain rule text to conform with NASDAQ’s Market Maker Peg Order, which is a similar order type to the NBBO Offset Peg Order,14 and updates the implementation date in light of the Plan and proposed changes to market making quoting requirements. Thus, the Exchange believes that the proposed rule change promotes the efficient execution of investor transactions, and thus investor confidence, over the long term. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with B.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange has neither solicited nor received written comments on the proposed rule change.

Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 days after the date of the filing, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 16 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) 17 thereunder. At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.

``EDGA'') filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission

II below, which items have been prepared by the self-regulatory 
organization. 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 amend Rule 11.5(c), which describes the 
manner in which the NBBO Offset Peg Order operates. All of the changes 
described herein are applicable to EDGA Members. The text of the 
proposed rule change is available on the Exchange's Internet Web site 
at www.directedge.com, at the Exchange's principal office, and at the 
Public Reference Room of the Commission.

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 self-regulatory organization 
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 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 Exchange proposes to amend Rule 11.5(c), the NBBO Offset Peg 
Order. As described in the Exchange's filing to create the NBBO Offset 
Peg Order,\3\ the NBBO Offset Peg Order enables Users \4\ to submit buy 
and sell orders to the Exchange that are pegged to a designated 
percentage away from the National Best Bid (the ``NBB'') and National 
Best Offer (the ``NBO'', and together with the NBB, the ``NBBO''), 
respectively, while providing them full control over order origination 
and order marking. This retention of control, in turn, enables Market 
Makers to comply independently with the requirements of Regulation SHO 
\5\ under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ``Act'') and Rule 
15c3-5 \6\ under the Act (the ``Market Access Rule'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 67960 (October 2, 
2012), 77 FR 61463 (October 9, 2012) (SR-EDGA-2012-44).
    \4\ As defined in Rule 1.5(ee).
    \5\ 17 CFR 242.200 through 242.204.
    \6\ 17 CFR 242.15c3-5.

    As described in the Exchange's filing to create the NBBO Offset 
Peg Order: Upon entry and at any time the price of the order reached 
the `Defined Limit', or moved a specified number of percentage 
points away from the `Designated Percentage' toward the then current 
NBB (for NBBO Offset Peg Orders to buy) or NBO (for NBBO Offset Peg 
Orders to sell), the price of the NBBO Offset Peg Order would be 
automatically adjusted by the System to the Designated Percentage 
away from the then current NBB or NBO, as the case may be. In the 
event that there was no NBB or NBO, the price of the NBBO Offset Peg 
Order would be automatically adjusted by the System to the 
Designated Percentage away from the last reported sale from the 
responsible single plan processor, unless the User instructed the 
Exchange upon entry to cancel or reject the order under such 
circumstances.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 67960 (October 2, 
2012), 77 FR 61463 (October 9, 2012) (SR-EDGA-2012-44).

    The Exchange proposes to amend the text of Rule 11.5(c)(15) to not 
allow the User to cancel or reject the order under the circumstances 
outlined above. Therefore, the Exchange proposes to delete the 
following text in Rule 11.5(c)(15): ``unless instructed by the User 
upon order entry to cancel or reject rather than adjust based on the 
last reported sale from the single plan processor.'' The text of the 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
rule will now read that:

    [u]pon reaching the Defined Limit (as defined in Rule 
11.21(d)(2)(F)), the price of an NBBO Offset Peg Order bid or offer 
will be automatically adjusted by the System to the Designated 
Percentage away from the then current NBB or NBO, respectively, or 
if there is no NBB or NBO at such time, to the Designated Percentage 
away from the last reported sale from the responsible single plan 
processor. If an NBBO Offset Peg Order bid or offer moves a 
specified number of percentage points away from the Designated 
Percentage toward the then current NBB or NBO, the price of such bid 
or offer will be automatically adjusted by the System to the 
Designated Percentage away from the then current NBB and NBO. If 
there is no NBB or NBO at such time, the order will be automatically 
adjusted by the System to the Designated Percentage away from the 
last reported sale from the responsible single plan processor.

    Thus, when processing NBBO Offset Peg Orders, the System will not 
condition adjustment of the price upon the User's instructions.
    The Exchange originally stated in SR-EDGA-2012-44 that it ``intends 
to implement the proposed rule change on or about November 19, 2012, 
and will notify its Members and other market

[[Page 2476]]

participants in an information circular to be posted on the Exchange's 
Web site.'' \8\ The Exchange proposes to revise this implementation 
date to on or about April 15, 2013. This additional time will enable 
the Exchange to assess the usefulness of the NBBO Offset Peg Order in 
light of the upcoming implementation of the National Market System Plan 
to Address Extraordinary Market Volatility (as amended, the ``Plan'') 
as approved by the Commission \9\ and proposed changes to market making 
quoting requirements through uniform industry-wide amendments to 
Designated Percentages \10\ and Defined Limits \11\ to realign the 
percentages based on the Plan's Appendix A Percentage Parameters.

2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent 
with Section 6(b) of the Act \12\ and furthers the objectives of 
Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,\13\ 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 facilitating transactions in securities, and to 
remove impediments to and perfect the mechanisms of a free and open 
market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect 
investors and the public interest. The Exchange believes that the 
proposed rule filing meets these requirements because it eliminates 
certain rule text to conform with NASDAQ's Market Maker Peg Order, 
which is a similar order type to the NBBO Offset Peg Order,\14\ and 
updates the implementation date in light of the Plan and proposed 
changes to market making quoting requirements. Thus, the Exchange 
believes that the proposed rule change promotes the efficient execution 
of investor transactions, and thus investor confidence, over the long 
term.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    The Exchange 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, as amended. The proposed 
rule change will increase competition among the exchanges because the 
NBBO Offset Peg Order will directly compete with substantially similar 
existing order types offered by other exchanges.\15\

Peg Order available for exchange market makers).

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

    The Exchange has neither solicited nor received written comments on 
the proposed rule change.

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

    Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) 
Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public 
interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) 
become operative for 30 days after the date of the filing, or such 
shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become effective 
pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \16\ and Rule 19b-4(f)(6) 
\17\ thereunder.

    \17\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b-4(f)(6) 
requires a self-regulatory organization to give the Commission 
written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change at 
least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed 
rule change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission. 
The Exchange has satisfied this requirement.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule 
change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule 
change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or 
appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or 
otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. If the Commission 
takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to 
determine whether the proposed rule should be approved or disapproved.

arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule 
change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of
