Jkt 232001 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 November 29, 2013, EDGX Exchange, Inc. (the ‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘EDGX’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II and III 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 its fees and rebates applicable to Members 3 of the Exchange pursuant to EDGX Rule 15.1(a) and (c) (‘‘Fee Schedule’’) to(i) remove Flag RS, which routes to PSX and adds liquidity; and (ii) increase the 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. 3 The term ‘‘Member’’ is defined as ‘‘any registered broker or dealer, or any person associated with a registered broker or dealer, that has been admitted to membership in the Exchange. A Member will have the status of a ‘‘member’’ of the Exchange as that term is defined in Section 3(a)(3) of the Act.’’ See Exchange Rule 1.5(n). 2 17 PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 76337 rebate to add liquidity under the Market Depth Tier 1 from $0.0032 per share to $0.00325 per share and amend the criteria necessary to achieve the tier. 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 the Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to amend its Fee Schedule to: (i) remove Flag RS, which routes to PSX and adds liquidity; and (ii) increase the rebate to add liquidity under the Market Depth Tier 1 from $0.0032 per share to $0.00325 per share and amend the criteria necessary to achieve the tier. Flag RS The Exchange proposes to amend its Fee Schedule to remove Flag RS, which routes to PSX and adds liquidity. The Exchange currently rebates orders that yield Flag RS $0.0020 per share for securities priced at or above $1.00 and charges no fee for securities priced below $1.00. These fees represent a pass through of the rate that Direct Edge ECN LLC (d/b/a DE Route) (‘‘DE Route’’), the Exchange’s affiliated routing brokerdealer, is rebated for routing orders to PSX when it does not qualify for a volume tiered rate. The Exchange recently began to incur increased excessive messaging fees from PSX.4 To mitigate the increased messaging fees, the Exchange intends to delete Flag RS from its Fee Schedule and no longer permit Members to route orders via DE 4 See the Excessive Messaging Policy under the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC fee schedule available at http://www.nasdaqtrader.com/ Trader.aspx?id=PriceListTrading2 (last visited November 20, 2013).
