The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on May 19, 2014.3 The Commission received two comment letters regarding the proposed rule change.4 On June 25, 2014, the Exchange extended the time for Commission action to August 4, 2014. On July 15, 2014, the Exchange submitted a letter responding to the comment letters.5 The Commission received an additional comment letter 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 72154 (May 13, 2014), 79 FR 28787 (‘‘Notice’’). 4 See letters to Elizabeth M. Murphy, Secretary, Commission, from James Ongena, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, Chicago Stock Exchange, dated June 9, 2014 (‘‘CHX Letter’’); Manisha Kimmel, Managing Director, Financial Information Forum, dated June 13, 2014 (‘‘FIF Letter I’’). 5 See letter to Elizabeth M. Murphy, Secretary, Commission, from Laura G. Dickman, Senior Attorney, CBOE, dated July 15, 2014 (‘‘CBOE Letter I’’). 2 17 PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49123 on July 18, 2014.6 On July 31, 2014, the Exchange extended the time for Commission action to August 15, 2014. On August 6, 2014, the Exchange submitted a second response letter.7 This order approves the proposed rule change. II. Description of the Proposal The Exchange proposes to define a ‘‘Tied to Stock Order’’ and establish reporting requirements for Tied to Stock Orders. Specifically, the Exchange proposes that an order is tied to stock (and is, therefore, a Tied to Stock Order) if, at the time the Trading Permit Holder (‘‘TPH’’) representing the order on the Exchange receives or initiates the order, the TPH has knowledge that the order is coupled with an order(s) for the underlying stock or a security convertible into the underlying stock (‘‘convertible security’’ and, together with underlying stock, ‘‘non-option’’).8 The Exchange notes that a TPH must have knowledge of the non-option order for an order to meet the definition of a Tied to Stock Order.9 As an example, the Exchange states that if a TPH is a routing broker and receives an option order with no knowledge of a related stock component submitted separately for execution, then the routing broker TPH is not required to mark the order as a Tied to Stock Order.10 Accordingly, the Exchange states that routing brokers do not need to take any steps to require non-TPH clients to identify orders as Tied to Stock Orders.11 6 See letter to Elizabeth M. Murphy, Secretary, Commission, Manisha Kimmel, Managing Director, Financial Information Forum, dated July 18, 2014 (‘‘FIF Letter II’’). 7 See letter to Elizabeth M. Murphy, Secretary, Commission, from Laura G. Dickman, Senior Attorney, CBOE, dated August 6, 2014 (‘‘CBOE Letter II’’). 8 See proposed CBOE Rule 6.53(y). CBOE notes that Tied to Stock Orders may be simple or complex orders and may be part of, among other things, buywrite strategies, married put strategies, delta neutral strategies, contingent strategies, and other stockoption trading strategies with definitive option orders and stock orders. See Notice, supra note 3, at 28788. 9 See Notice, supra note 3, at 28788. 10 See id. 11 See id. The Exchange notes, however, that where a routing client is a TPH, and that client separates a related stock order (or is aware of a separate non-option order) prior to submitting the option order to the routing broker, the TPH client has the responsibility to mark the order as a Tied to Stock Order, and the routing broker would not have any ‘‘re-marking’’ obligation. See id. Nevertheless, the Exchange states that where a routing broker populates order information for orders and either elects to route the non-option order of a trading strategy separately for execution (or has knowledge of a separate non-option component), then the routing broker must mark the order as a Tied to Stock Order. See id. at 28788– 89. E:\FR\FM\19AUN1.SGM 19AUN1
