The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. 2 17 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4.

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 [FR Doc. 2014–07044 Filed 3–28–14; 8:45 am] 1 15 I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to extend a pilot program related to CBOE Stock Exchange, LLC (‘‘CBSX’’) Rule 52.4 (Clearly Erroneous Policy). The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site (http:// www.cboe.com/AboutCBOE/ CBOELegalRegulatoryHome.aspx), at the Exchange’s Office of the Secretary, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. 1. Purpose The purpose of this filing is to extend the effectiveness of CBSX’s current rule applicable to the Clearly Erroneous Policy. Portions of CBSX Rule 52.4, explained in further detail below, are currently operating as a pilot program set to expire on April 8, 2014.3 The Exchange proposes to extend the pilot program to coincide with the pilot period for the Plan to Address Extraordinary Market Volatility Pursuant to Rule 608 of Regulation NMS under the Act (the ‘‘Limit Up-Limit Down Plan’’ or the ‘‘Plan’’), including any extensions to the pilot period for the Plan.4 On September 10, 2010, the Commission approved, on a pilot basis, changes to CBSX Rule 52.4 to provide for uniform treatment: (1) Of clearly erroneous execution reviews in multistock events involving twenty or more securities; and (2) in the event transactions occur that result in the issuance of an individual stock trading 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 70509 (Sept. 26, 2013), 78 FR 60971 (Oct. 2, 2013) (SR– CBOE–2013–091). 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 67091 (May 31, 2012), 77 FR 33498 (June 6, 2012) (the ‘‘Limit Up-Limit Down Release’’). PO 00000 Frm 00083 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 pause by the primary listing market and subsequent transactions that occur before the trading pause is in effect on the CBSX.5 The Exchange also adopted additional changes to Rule 52.4 that reduced the ability of the Exchange to deviate from the objective standards set forth in Rule 52.4,6 and in 2013, adopted a provision designed to address the operation of the Plan.7 The Exchange believes the benefits to market participants from the more objective clearly erroneous executions rule should continue on a pilot basis to coincide with the operation of the Limit Up-Limit Down Plan. The Exchange believes that continuing the pilot will protect against any unanticipated consequences. Thus, the Exchange believes that the protections of the Clearly Erroneous Rule should continue while the industry gains further experience operating the Plan. 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.8 Specifically, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) 9 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)10 requirement that the rules of an exchange not be designed to permit unfair discrimination between customers, issuers, brokers, or dealers. Although the Limit Up-Limit Down Plan is operational, the Exchange believes that maintaining the pilot will help to protect against unanticipated consequences. Thus, the Exchange believes that the protections of the Clearly Erroneous Rule should continue 5 Securities Exchange Act Release No. 62886 (Sept. 10, 2010), 75 FR 56613 (Sept. 16, 2010) (SR– CBOE–2010–056). 6 Id. 7 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 68800 (February 1, 2013), 78 FR 9076 (Feb. 7, 2013) (SR– CBOE–2013–012); see also CBOE Rule 52.4(i). 8 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). 9 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
