I. Introduction On January 17, 2013, the New York Stock Exchange LLC (‘‘NYSE’’) and NYSE MKT LLC (‘‘NYSE MKT’’ and together with NYSE, the ‘‘Exchanges’’) each filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 proposed rule changes to allow Retail Member Organizations (‘‘RMOs’’) to attest that ‘‘substantially all,’’ rather than all, orders submitted to the Exchanges’ respective Retail Liquidity Programs (‘‘Programs’’) qualify as ‘‘Retail Orders.’’ The proposed rule changes were published for comment in the Federal Register on February 4, 2013.3 The Commission received one comment on the proposals.4 On March 20, 2013, the Commission extended the time for Commission action on the proposed rule changes until May 5, 2013.5 The Exchanges submitted a response to the comment letter on April 2, 2013.6 This order approves the proposed rule changes. II. Description of the Proposals The Exchanges began operating their respective Programs after they were approved by the Commission on a pilot basis in July, 2012.7 Under the current 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1).

Specifically, the Exchanges propose to amend Rule 107C (NYSE) and 107C— Equities (NYSE MKT) to provide that an RMO may attest that ‘‘substantially all’’—rather than all—of the orders it submits to the Program are Retail Orders as defined in Rule 107C. The Exchanges represented that they believe the categorical nature of the current ‘‘any order’’ attestation requirement is preventing certain member organizations with retail customer business from participating in the Programs. According to the Exchanges, some of these member organizations that wish to participate in the Programs represent both ‘‘Retail Orders,’’ as defined in Rule 107C(a)(3), as well as other agency flow that may not meet the strict definition of ‘‘Retail Order.’’ The Exchanges understand that, due to technical limitations in order management systems and routing networks, such member organizations may not be able to fully segregate Retail Orders from other agency, non-Retail Order flow. As a result, the Exchanges believe that some member organizations choose not to participate in the Program because they cannot satisfy the current categorical attestation requirement, although they could satisfy the proposed ‘‘substantially all’’ requirement. The Exchanges clarified in their proposals that the ‘‘substantially all’’ standard is meant to allow only de minimis amounts of orders to participate in the Programs that do not meet the definition of a Retail Order in Rule 107C and that cannot be segregated from bona fide Retail Orders due to 8 A Retail Order is defined in Rule 107C(a)(3) as ‘‘an agency order or a riskless principal order that originates from a natural person and is submitted to the Exchange by a Retail Member Organization, provided that no change is made to the terms of the order with respect to price or side of market and the order does not originate from a trading algorithm or any other computerized methodology.’’ 9 Given that the rules governing the NYSE and NYSE MKT Retail Liquidity Programs are virtually identical, and that the rationale for the adoption of the proposed rule text is the same, references to the text of NYSE Rule 107C in this order and the rationale for its adoption, unless otherwise noted, apply equally to NYSE MKT Rule 107C—Equities.
