As such, the proposed rule change would foster cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in facilitating transactions in securities and would remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system. Similarly, the Exchange also believes that, by harmonizing the rules and across each BGM Affiliated Exchange with respect to the Plan, the proposal will enhance the Exchange’s ability to fairly and efficiently regulate its Members, meaning that the proposed rule change is equitable and will promote fairness in the market place. Finally, the proposal to remove the references to individual stock trading pauses promotes just and equitable principles of trade and removes impediments to, and perfects the mechanism of, a free and open market and a national market system. By eliminating the reference to trading pauses outside the scope of the Plan in its rules, the Exchange will help to alleviate any potential confusion with respect to such pauses, particularly in light of the implementation of the Plan. The proposed rule change is also consistent with Section 11A(a)(1) of the Act 32 in that it seeks to assure fair competition among brokers and dealers and exchange markets. Finally, the Exchange believes that the non-substantive, ministerial changes discussed above will contribute to the protection of investors and the public interest by helping to avoid confusion with respect to Exchange Rules. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the act. To the contrary, allowing the Exchange to implement substantively identical rules across each of the BGM Affiliated Exchanges regarding the Plan does not present any competitive issues, but rather is designed to provide greater harmonization among Exchange, EDGX, BYX, and BZX rules of similar purpose. The proposed rule change should, therefore, resulting in less burdensome and more efficient regulatory compliance and understanding of Exchange Rules for common members of the BGM Affiliated Exchanges and an enhanced ability of the BGM Affiliated Exchanges to fairly and efficiently regulate Members, which will further enhance competition. 32 15 U.S.C. 78k–1(a)(1).
