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 purpose of the proposed rule change is to amend BX’s Rules to include provisions to permit the trading of options overlying Phlx proprietary indexes on BX 3 and Phlx U.S. DollarSettled Foreign Currencies.4 Today, Phlx has various rules which pertain to the listing of options overlying Phlx proprietary indexes and U.S. DollarSettled Foreign Currencies. The Exchange proposes to list these Phlx proprietary products on the Exchange in the same manner and with the same terms as these options are traded on Phlx. Phlx Proprietary Indexes Position Limits The Exchange is proposing to amend various BX Rules to permit the listing of Phlx proprietary indexes. The Exchange is proposing to amend Chapter XIV, which pertains to indexes, specifically at Section 5 regarding position limits. The Exchange is proposing to amend this Rule to require Options Participants to comply with the rules of Phlx with respect to position limits for ‘‘PHLX proprietary products.’’ The Exchange is proposing a similar amendment to Section 7 relating to micro-narrow based indexes. Options Participants would be 3 Today, Phlx lists the following proprietary indexes on its market: SIG Oil Exploration & Production IndexTM (EPXSM); PHLX Semiconductor SectorSM (SOXSM); PHLX Housing SectorTM (HGXSM); PHLX Oil Service SectorSM (OSXSM); Phlx Utility SectorSM (UTYSM); and PHLX Gold/ Silver SectorSM (XAUSM). 4 Today, Phlx lists the following proprietary U.S. Dollar-Settled Foreign Currencies: XDA (Australian Dollar); XDB (British Pound); XDC (Canadian Dollar); XDE (Euro); XDN (Japanese Yen); XDS (Swiss Franc); and XDZ (New Zealand Dollar).

Options Participants would be required to comply with Phlx rules with respect to position limits for Phlx proprietary products. Definition The Exchange is also proposing to amend Chapter I, Section 1 which contains definitions to include the definition of closing index value. Specifically, the Exchange is adding the following definition for closing index value: ‘‘The [t]erm ‘closing index value’ in respect of a particular index means the current index value calculated at the close of business on the day of exercise, or, if the day of exercise is not a trading day, on the last trading day before exercise (P.M.-settled), unless the settlement value of the index is based on the opening price of each component issue on the primary market (A.M.settled).’’ This definition is the same definition that appears in Phlx Rules.5 Listing of Long-Term Index Options Finally, the Exchange proposes to amend Chapter XIV, Section 11 to amend the Terms of Index Options Contracts to amend the text related to Long Term Index Options Series. Today, BX may list long-term index options series that expire from twelve to sixty months from the date of issuance. The Exchange proposes to amend this timeframe to mirror the timeframe for Phlx index options which is nine to sixty months at Chapter XIV, Section 11(b)(1).6 In addition, the Exchange proposes to amend Chapter XIV, Section 11(b)(1)(i) to state that ‘‘Strike price interval, bid/ask differential and continuity Rules shall not apply to such options series until the time to expiration is less than nine (9) months.’’ Today, the timeframe is twelve months. The Exchange is conforming this text to the amendment in Section 11(b)(1).

The Exchange is proposing to amend Chapter III, which pertain to indexes, specifically at Section 7 regarding position limits. The Exchange is proposing to amend the rule to provide that no Options Participant shall make, for any account 5 See 6 See E:\FR\FM\25APN1.SGM Phlx Rule 1000A(a)(8). Phlx Rule 1101A. 25APN1
