Discussion and Commission Findings After careful review, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to a national securities exchange.27 In particular, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,28 which requires, among other things, that the Exchange’s rules be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, 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; and are not designed to permit unfair discrimination between customers, issuers, brokers or dealers. The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change will provide additional clarity and specificity regarding the functionality of the System, thus promoting just and equitable principals of trade and promoting a fair and open market. In addition, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change will contribute to the protection of investors and the public interest by making the Exchange’s rules easier to understand. The Exchange states that the proposed rule changes add clarity and transparency to the Exchange’s rulebook regarding existing Exchange functionality.29 For example, among other things, the Exchange’s proposal would amend Rule 11.9 to clarify that IOC orders are routable and FOK orders are not routable, specify the methodology used by the Exchange to 25 See Notice, supra note 3 at 8725–26. See also proposed Rule 11.13(b)(4)(C). 26 See Notice, supra note 3 at 8725. See also proposed Rule 11.13(b)(5). For additional detail regarding the Exchange’s proposed rule changes, including examples of the operation of functionality addressed by this rule filing, see Notice, supra note 3 at 8721–26. 27 In approving this proposed rule change, the Commission has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 78c(f). 28 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5) 29 See Notice, supra note 3 at 8726.

The Exchange also has proposed to amend Rules 11.12 and 11.13 to provide additional transparency as to, but not substantively modify, the Exchange’s process for ranking, executing and routing orders, including orders subject to the Exchange’s re-route functionality. The Commission believes that these proposed changes should provide greater specificity, clarity and transparency with respect to certain order type and modifier functionality available on the Exchange, as well as the Exchange’s methodologies for ranking, executing and routing orders. Therefore, the proposal should help to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, promote just and equitable principles of trade, remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, protect investors and the public interest. IV. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,30 that the proposed rule change (SR–BATS–2015– 09) be, and it hereby is, approved. For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.31 Brent J. Fields, Secretary.
