Fee Schedule April 23, 2014. 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 April 9, 2014, 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 sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES The Exchange proposes to amend its fees and rebates applicable to Members 3 of the Exchange pursuant to EDGX Rule 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:56 Apr 28, 2014 Jkt 232001 15.1(a) and (c) (‘‘Fee Schedule’’) to harmonize the definitions of Average Daily Trading Volume (‘‘ADV’’) and Total Consolidated Volume (‘‘TCV’’) with those contained in the BATS Exchange, Inc. (‘‘BATS’’) and BATS–Y Exchange, Inc. (‘‘BYX’’) fee schedules by: (i) Modifying the way that, for purposes of tiered pricing, the Exchange calculates ADV and average daily TCV; and (ii) clarify the manner in which Members may aggregate their ADV with other affiliated Members. 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 On January 31, 2014, Direct Edge Holdings LLC (‘‘DE Holdings’’), the former parent company of the Exchange, completed its business combination with BATS Global Markets, Inc., the parent company of BATS and BYX.4 As part of its effort to reduce regulatory duplication and relieve firms that are members of the Exchange, BATS, and BYX of conflicting or unnecessary regulatory burdens, the Exchange is now engaged in the process of reviewing and amending certain Exchange, BATS, and BYX Rules. To conform to comparable BATS and BYX rules for purposes of its harmonization efforts due to its business combination, the Exchange proposes to amend the definitions of ADV and TCV to make each definition similar to those 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 71449 (January 30, 2014), 79 FR 6961 (February 5, 2014) (SR–EDGX–2013–43). Upon completion of the Combination, DE Holdings and BATS Global Markets, Inc. each became intermediate holding companies, held under a single new holding company. The new holding company, formerly named ‘‘BATS Global Markets Holdings, Inc.,’’ changed its name to ‘‘BATS Global Markets, Inc.’’ PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 contained in the BATS and BYX fee schedules by modifying the way that, for purposes of tiered pricing: (i) The Exchange calculates ADV and average daily TCV; and (ii) the manner in which Members may aggregate their ADV with other affiliated Members. The Exchange notes that it is not proposing to modify any of the existing rebates or the percentage thresholds at which a Member may qualify for certain rebates pursuant to the tiered pricing structure. ADV and TCV Currently, the Exchange determines the liquidity adding rebate that it will provide to Members based on the Exchange’s tiered pricing structure based on the calculation of ADV,5 and/ or average daily TCV.6 Unlike on BATS and BYX, the Exchange does not currently exclude any trading days from its calculation of ADV and TCV. Therefore, to harmonize the calculation of ADV and TCV with BATS and BYX, the Exchange proposes to amend the definitions of ADV and TCV to exclude shares on: (i) Any day that the Exchange’s system experiences a disruption that lasts for more than 60 minutes during Regular Trading Hours 7 (‘‘Exchange System Disruption’’); and (ii) the last Friday in June (the ‘‘Russell Reconstitution Day’’). The Exchange also proposes to amend the definition of ADV to clarify that routed shares are not included in ADV calculation. First, the Exchange proposes to modify the definitions of ADV and TCV to exclude trading days where the Exchange experiences a systems disruption that lasts for more than 60 minutes during Regular Trading Hours and define it as an Exchange System Disruption.8 As an example, an Exchange System Disruption may occur where a certain group of securities (i.e., securities in a select symbol range such as A through C) traded on the Exchange are unavailable for trading due to an Exchange system issue. Similarly, the Exchange may be able to perform certain functions with respect to accepting and processing orders, but may have a failure to another significant process, 5 As provided in the Fee Schedule, ‘‘ADV’’ is currently defined as the average daily volume of shares that a Member executed on the Exchange for the month in which the fees are calculated. 6 As provided in the Fee Schedule, ‘‘TCV’’ is currently defined as the volume reported by all exchanges and trade reporting facilities to the consolidated transaction reporting plans for Tapes A, B and C securities for the month in which the fees are calculated. 7 ‘‘Regular Trading Hours’’ is defined as ‘‘the time between 9:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time.’’ See Exchange Rule 1.5(y). 8 See SR–BATS–2014–010 and SR–BYX–2014– 006 (proposing to exclude Exchange System Disruptions from the definition of ADV).
