Statutory Basis tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The CBSX Fees Schedule provides for different fee tiers for Maker executions in transactions in all other securities priced $1 or greater depending on the percentage of TCV that the Maker adds of liquidity in a given day.3 Prior to December 9, 2013, odd lot trades (trades of less than 100 shares) have not been reported by stock exchanges or eligible trade reporting facilities to the Consolidated Tape Administration and UTP Plan, and therefore were not counted, recorded or reported in the trade reports created by those regimes. As such, odd lot trades would not have been counted towards ‘‘TCV’’ by CBSX, as ‘‘TCV’’ is defined as ‘‘total consolidated volume calculated as the volume reported by all exchanges and trade reporting facilities to a consolidated transaction reporting plan.’’ Odd lot trades executed by Makers on CBSX, however, did count towards those Makers’ percentages of TCV contributed (meaning that such trades helped the Makers as they counted towards their numerators but were not counted in the denominator that determines their percentages). Beginning on December 9, 2013, odd lot trades will begin to be reported to the Consolidated Tape Administration and UTP Plan, and therefore will be counted, recorded and reported in the trade reports created by those regimes. This means that such trades would be included in the ‘‘TCV’’ denominator. However, CBSX proposes to exclude volume from odd lot transactions through January 31, 2014 from the calculation of TCV (and therefore from counting towards the denominator in the calculation of which Maker fee tiers). CBSX publishes the TCV calculation on CBSX’s Web site each day, and would simply subtract odd lot trades from the total volume reported by all exchanges and trade reporting facilities to a consolidated transaction reporting plan. This will give market participants time to adjust their trading behavior to account for the inclusion of odd lot trades in TCV, and can only be of benefit to CBSX market participants (since odd lot trades count towards their percentages (the numerator) of TCV). 3 See CBSX Fees Schedule, Section 1. ‘‘TCV’’ means total consolidated volume calculated as the volume reported by all exchanges and trade reporting facilities to a consolidated transaction reporting plan. Volume from Maker executions in the Select Symbols (priced $1 or greater) will count towards a market participant’s % of TCV. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:12 Dec 20, 2013 Jkt 232001 The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to the Exchange and, in particular, the requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act.4 Specifically, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b)(4) of the Act,5 which requires that Exchange rules provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and other charges among its Trading Permit Holders and other persons using its facilities. CBSX believes that the proposed change is reasonable because it can only serve to help market participants have a higher percentage of TCV (and thereby be assessed lower transaction fees). CBSX believes that the proposed change is equitable and not unfairly discriminatory because it will apply to all CBSX market participants. Indeed, not including odd lot trades towards TCV could make it easier for market participants to continue to reach higher volume (and lower fee) tiers, thereby encouraging such market participants to engage in more trading at CBSX. This increased volume and liquidity could benefit all market participants. Further, the exclusion of odd lots from TCV should benefit all market participants by keeping TCV lower, making it easier for all CBSX market participants to reach higher volume (and lower fee) tiers. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition CBSX 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. CBSX does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on intramarket competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act because the lower TCV number (that excludes odd lot transactions) will apply to all market participants. CBSX does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on intermarket competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act because the proposed change only applies to trading on CBSX. Indeed, this lower TCV number could encourage more trading on CBSX. Further, the proposed change is merely a continuation of the current calculation of TCV. To the extent that the proposed change makes CBSX a more attractive 4 15 5 15 PO 00000 U.S.C. 78f(b). U.S.C. 78f(b)(4).

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange neither solicited nor received comments on the proposed rule change. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The foregoing rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 6 and paragraph (f) of Rule 19b–4 7 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.

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 Exchange 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 Exchange 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 its Fees Schedule with regard to the quoting bandwidth allowance for Market-Makers. The Fees Schedule states that the bandwidth allowance for a Market-Maker Trading Permit is equivalent to a maximum of 195,000,000 quotes over the course of a trading day. However, in reaching the v quotes number, C2 only took into account the normal trading hours for equity options (8:30 a.m.–3:00 p.m. (all times herein are Central)) and erroneously failed to account for the fact that index and ETP options trading is open until 3:15 p.m. (an extra 15 minutes). Therefore, the Exchange’s quoting bandwidth allowance for index and ETP options is actually greater than the 195,000,000 quotes listed in the Fees Schedule. In order to account for this error, the Exchange proposes to amend the Fees Schedule to delete the 195,000,000 number and replace it with 202,500,000 (which accounts for the extra 15 minutes). 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act and the rules and regulations PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 thereunder applicable to the Exchange and, in particular, the requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act.3 Specifically, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) 4 requirements that the rules of an exchange be 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 regulating, clearing, settling, processing information with respect to, and facilitating transactions in securities, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. Additionally, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) 5 requirement that the rules of an exchange not be designed to permit unfair discrimination between customers, issuers, brokers, or dealers. The Exchange believes that amending the Fees Schedule to more accurately reflect the Market-Maker Trading Permit quoting bandwidth allowance (taking into account the extra fifteen minutes that index and ETP options are traded) shall alleviate confusion, thereby removing impediments to and perfecting the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system. The proposed change applies equally to all Market-Maker Trading Permits. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition C2 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. The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on intramarket competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act because the proposed change is merely making a correction. Further, the new 202,500,000 quotes amount applies to all Market-Maker Trading Permits. The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on intermarket competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act because the proposed change is merely a correction, not a competitive change, and only applies to trading on C2. 3 15 4 15 U.S.C. 78f(b).

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of Substance 
of the Proposed Rule Change

    The Exchange proposes to amend the Fees Schedule of its CBOE Stock

II. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and

    In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange 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 Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in 
sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such 
statements.

[[Page 77517]]

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    The CBSX Fees Schedule provides for different fee tiers for Maker 
executions in transactions in all other securities priced $1 or greater 
depending on the percentage of TCV that the Maker adds of liquidity in 
a given day.\3\ Prior to December 9, 2013, odd lot trades (trades of 
less than 100 shares) have not been reported by stock exchanges or 
eligible trade reporting facilities to the Consolidated Tape 
Administration and UTP Plan, and therefore were not counted, recorded 
or reported in the trade reports created by those regimes. As such, odd 
lot trades would not have been counted towards ``TCV'' by CBSX, as 
``TCV'' is defined as ``total consolidated volume calculated as the 
volume reported by all exchanges and trade reporting facilities to a 
consolidated transaction reporting plan.'' Odd lot trades executed by 
Makers on CBSX, however, did count towards those Makers' percentages of 
TCV contributed (meaning that such trades helped the Makers as they 
counted towards their numerators but were not counted in the 
denominator that determines their percentages).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See CBSX Fees Schedule, Section 1. ``TCV'' means total 
consolidated volume calculated as the volume reported by all 
exchanges and trade reporting facilities to a consolidated 
transaction reporting plan. Volume from Maker executions in the 
Select Symbols (priced $1 or greater) will count towards a market 
participant's % of TCV.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Beginning on December 9, 2013, odd lot trades will begin to be 
reported to the Consolidated Tape Administration and UTP Plan, and 
therefore will be counted, recorded and reported in the trade reports 
created by those regimes. This means that such trades would be included 
in the ``TCV'' denominator. However, CBSX proposes to exclude volume 
from odd lot transactions through January 31, 2014 from the calculation 
of TCV (and therefore from counting towards the denominator in the 
calculation of which Maker fee tiers). CBSX publishes the TCV 
calculation on CBSX's Web site each day, and would simply subtract odd 
lot trades from the total volume reported by all exchanges and trade 
reporting facilities to a consolidated transaction reporting plan. This 
will give market participants time to adjust their trading behavior to 
account for the inclusion of odd lot trades in TCV, and can only be of 
benefit to CBSX market participants (since odd lot trades count towards 
their percentages (the numerator) of TCV).
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with 
the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to the 
Exchange and, in particular, the requirements of Section 6(b) of the 
Act.\4\ Specifically, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is 
consistent with Section 6(b)(4) of the Act,\5\ which requires that 
Exchange rules provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, 
fees, and other charges among its Trading Permit Holders and other 
persons using its facilities. CBSX believes that the proposed change is 
reasonable because it can only serve to help market participants have a 
higher percentage of TCV (and thereby be assessed lower transaction 
fees). CBSX believes that the proposed change is equitable and not 
unfairly discriminatory because it will apply to all CBSX market 
participants. Indeed, not including odd lot trades towards TCV could 
make it easier for market participants to continue to reach higher 
volume (and lower fee) tiers, thereby encouraging such market 
participants to engage in more trading at CBSX. This increased volume 
and liquidity could benefit all market participants. Further, the 
exclusion of odd lots from TCV should benefit all market participants 
by keeping TCV lower, making it easier for all CBSX market participants 
to reach higher volume (and lower fee) tiers.

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

    CBSX 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. CBSX does not believe that the 
proposed rule change will impose any burden on intramarket competition 
that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of 
the Act because the lower TCV number (that excludes odd lot 
transactions) will apply to all market participants. CBSX does not 
believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on 
intermarket competition that is not necessary or appropriate in 
furtherance of the purposes of the Act because the proposed change only 
applies to trading on CBSX. Indeed, this lower TCV number could 
encourage more trading on CBSX. Further, the proposed change is merely 
a continuation of the current calculation of TCV. To the extent that 
the proposed change makes CBSX a more attractive market to market 
participants at other exchanges, such market participants may elect to 
become CBSX market participants.

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

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

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

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. If the Commission 
takes such action, the Commission will institute proceedings to 
determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or
