The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant parts of such statements. (A) Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to amend its Fee Schedule to amend the requirements for meeting the Tape B Quoting Tier for LMP Securities.6 7 Specifically, the Exchange is proposing that a Member will qualify for Tier 1 of the Tape B Quoting Tier where the Member is enrolled in at least 50 LMP Securities for which it meets the required criteria 8 (the ‘‘Required Criteria’’) for at least 50% of the trading days in a particular month. As currently implemented, a Member must be enrolled in 50 LMP Securities for which it meets the Required Criteria every trading day in a month in order to be eligible for the additional rebate in Tape B 9 securities. As proposed, the Exchange would count an LMP Security toward the 50 LMP Security 6 ‘‘LMP Securities’’ means a list of securities included in the Liquidity Management Program, the universe of which will be determined by the Exchange and published in a circular distributed to Members and on the Exchange’s Web site. Such LMP Securities will include all Bats-listed ETPs and certain non-Bats-listed ETPs for which the Exchange wants to incentivize Members to provide enhanced market quality. All Bats-listed securities will be LMP Securities immediately upon listing on the Exchange. The Exchange will not remove a security from the list of LMP Securities without 30 days prior notice. 7 The Exchange notes that it originally filed a similar proposal as file number SR-BatsBZX–2016– 32 on June 30, 2016, which it subsequently withdrew and filed another similar proposal as file number SR–BatsBZX–2016–38 on July 6, 2016, which it also subsequently withdrew and filed another similar proposal as file number SR– BatsBZX–2016–40 on July 11, 2016. The Exchange has withdrawn file number SR–BatsBZX–2016–40 and is filing this similar proposal in its place. 8 The required criteria to meet the Tape B Quoting Tier are: (i) the Member’s NBBO Time in the LMP Security is at least 15% or NBBO Size Time is at least 25%; and (ii) the Member’s Displayed Size Time in the LMP Security is at least 90%. NBBO Time means the average of the percentage of time during regular trading hours during which the Member maintains at least 100 shares at each of the NBB and NBO. NBBO Size Time means the percentage of time during regular trading hours during which there are size-setting quotes at the NBBO on the Exchange. Displayed Size Time means the percentage of time during regular trading hours during which the Member maintains at least 2,500 displayed shares on the bid and separately maintains at least 2,500 displayed shares on the offer that are priced no more than 2% away from the NBB and NBO, respectively. 9 Tape B securities includes all securities listed on the Exchange, NYSE Arca, Inc., and NYSE MKT LLC. PO 00000 Frm 00115 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 requirement where the Member meets the Required Criteria for at least 50% of the trading days in a particular month. A Member would qualify for the Tape B Quoting Tier where the Member meets the Required Criteria for 50 different LMP Securities for at least 50% of the trading days in a particular month. The Required Criteria for each LMP Security will each be evaluated separately and the Member does not need to meet the Required Criteria for all 50 LMP Securities on the same 50% of trading days. For example, in a month with 22 trading days, a Member would be eligible for the Tape B Quoting Tier where the Member met the Required Criteria in 25 LMP Securities in the first 11 trading days of the month and met the Required Criteria for a different set of 25 LMP Securities in the second 11 trading days of the month. The Exchange is not proposing to amend the Required Criteria. The Exchange proposes to implement these amendments to its fee schedule effective immediately. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder that are applicable to a national securities exchange, and, in particular, with the requirements of Section 6 of the Act.10 Specifically, the Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b)(4) and 6(b)(5) of the Act,11 in that it provides for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees and other charges among its Members and other persons using its facilities. The proposal reflects a change to a competitive pricing structure designed to incent market participants to direct their order flow to the Exchange and enhance market quality in LMP Securities and in Tape B securities. The Exchange believes that the proposed change to require Members to only meet the Required Criteria for at least 50% of trading days in a particular month is equitable and nondiscriminatory in that it would apply uniformly to all Members. The Exchange believes that the proposed change is reasonable because the Required Criteria represent stringent quoting standards that can be difficult to meet and trading activity in LMP Securities can vary greatly on a day to day basis. Further, the proposed change is designed to enhance market quality on the Exchange by making the Tape B Quoting Tier more achievable for 10 15 11 15 E:\FR\FM\21JYN1.SGM U.S.C. 78f.

Making the Tape B Quoting Tier more achievable for Members will incentivize more Members to seek to meet the Tape B Quoting Tier, which will further enhance market quality on the Exchange, to the benefit of all participants. Stated another way, the Exchange believes that the Tape B Quoting Tier enhances market quality on the Exchange in two ways: (i) By incentivizing Members to meet certain quoting standards in LMP Securities designed to narrow spreads, increase size at the inside, and increase liquidity depth on the Exchange in such LMP Securities; and (ii) providing an additional rebate for all of a qualifying Member’s orders that add liquidity in Tape B securities will incentivize Members to increase their participation on the Exchange in Tape B securities. By making the Tape B Quoting Tier more achievable for Members, more Members will seek to and will meet the quoting tier and thus enhance liquidity on the Exchange as described above, to the benefit of all market participants. Accordingly, the Exchange also believes that the proposal will act to enhance liquidity and competition across exchanges in LMP Securities and enhance liquidity provision in Tape B securities on the Exchange by providing a rebate reasonably related to such enhanced market quality to the benefit of all investors, thereby promoting the principles discussed in Section 6(b)(5) of the Act.12 The Exchange notes that it operates in a highly competitive market in which market participants can readily direct order flow to competing venues if they deem fee levels at a particular venue to be excessive. (B) Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will result in any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act, as amended. The Exchange does not believe that the changes burden competition, but instead, enhance competition, as these changes are intended to increase the competitiveness of the Exchange as it is designed to draw additional volume to the Exchange. The Exchange notes that it operates in a highly competitive market in which market participants can readily direct order flow to competing venues if the deem fee structures to be unreasonable or excessive. The proposed changes are generally intended to enhance the rebates in Tape B securities, which is intended to enhance market quality in LMP Securities and Tape B securities. As such, the proposal is a competitive proposal that is intended to add additional liquidity to the Exchange, which will, in turn, benefit the Exchange and all Exchange participants. (C) Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants or Others The Exchange has not solicited, and does not intend to solicit, comments on this proposed rule change. The Exchange has not received any written comments from members or other interested parties. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The foregoing rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 13 and paragraph (f) of Rule 19b–4 thereunder.14 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. IV. Solicitation of Comments Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods: Electronic Comments • Use the Commission’s Internet comment form (http://www.sec.gov/ rules/sro.shtml); or • Send an email to rule-comments@ sec.gov.

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 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 parts of such 
statements.

(A) Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    The Exchange proposes to amend its Fee Schedule to amend the 
requirements for meeting the Tape B Quoting Tier for LMP 
Securities.6 7 Specifically, the Exchange is proposing that 
a Member will qualify for Tier 1 of the Tape B Quoting Tier where the 
Member is enrolled in at least 50 LMP Securities for which it meets the 
required criteria \8\ (the ``Required Criteria'') for at least 50% of 
the trading days in a particular month. As currently implemented, a 
Member must be enrolled in 50 LMP Securities for which it meets the 
Required Criteria every trading day in a month in order to be eligible 
for the additional rebate in Tape B \9\ securities. As proposed, the 
Exchange would count an LMP Security toward the 50 LMP Security 
requirement where the Member meets the Required Criteria for at least 
50% of the trading days in a particular month. A Member would qualify 
for the Tape B Quoting Tier where the Member meets the Required 
Criteria for 50 different LMP Securities for at least 50% of the 
trading days in a particular month. The Required Criteria for each LMP 
Security will each be evaluated separately and the Member does not need 
to meet the Required Criteria for all 50 LMP Securities on the same 50% 
of trading days. For example, in a month with 22 trading days, a Member 
would be eligible for the Tape B Quoting Tier where the Member met the 
Required Criteria in 25 LMP Securities in the first 11 trading days of 
the month and met the Required Criteria for a different set of 25 LMP 
Securities in the second 11 trading days of the month. The Exchange is 
not proposing to amend the Required Criteria.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ ``LMP Securities'' means a list of securities included in 
the Liquidity Management Program, the universe of which will be 
determined by the Exchange and published in a circular distributed 
to Members and on the Exchange's Web site. Such LMP Securities will 
include all Bats-listed ETPs and certain non-Bats-listed ETPs for 
which the Exchange wants to incentivize Members to provide enhanced 
market quality. All Bats-listed securities will be LMP Securities 
immediately upon listing on the Exchange. The Exchange will not 
remove a security from the list of LMP Securities without 30 days 
prior notice.
    \7\ The Exchange notes that it originally filed a similar 
proposal as file number SR-BatsBZX-2016-32 on June 30, 2016, which 
it subsequently withdrew and filed another similar proposal as file 
number SR-BatsBZX-2016-38 on July 6, 2016, which it also 
subsequently withdrew and filed another similar proposal as file 
number SR-BatsBZX-2016-40 on July 11, 2016. The Exchange has 
withdrawn file number SR-BatsBZX-2016-40 and is filing this similar 
proposal in its place.
    \8\ The required criteria to meet the Tape B Quoting Tier are: 
(i) the Member's NBBO Time in the LMP Security is at least 15% or 
NBBO Size Time is at least 25%; and (ii) the Member's Displayed Size 
Time in the LMP Security is at least 90%. NBBO Time means the 
average of the percentage of time during regular trading hours 
during which the Member maintains at least 100 shares at each of the 
NBB and NBO. NBBO Size Time means the percentage of time during 
regular trading hours during which there are size-setting quotes at 
the NBBO on the Exchange. Displayed Size Time means the percentage 
of time during regular trading hours during which the Member 
maintains at least 2,500 displayed shares on the bid and separately 
maintains at least 2,500 displayed shares on the offer that are 
priced no more than 2% away from the NBB and NBO, respectively.
    \9\ Tape B securities includes all securities listed on the 
Exchange, NYSE Arca, Inc., and NYSE MKT LLC.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange proposes to implement these amendments to its fee 
schedule effective immediately.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent 
with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations 
thereunder that are applicable to a national securities exchange, and, 
in particular, with the requirements of Section 6 of the Act.\10\ 
Specifically, the Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is 
consistent with Section 6(b)(4) and 6(b)(5) of the Act,\11\ in that it 
provides for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees and 
other charges among its Members and other persons using its facilities. 
The proposal reflects a change to a competitive pricing structure 
designed to incent market participants to direct their order flow to 
the Exchange and enhance market quality in LMP Securities and in Tape B 
securities. The Exchange believes that the proposed change to require 
Members to only meet the Required Criteria for at least 50% of trading 
days in a particular month is equitable and non-discriminatory in that 
it would apply uniformly to all Members. The Exchange believes that the 
proposed change is reasonable because the Required Criteria represent 
stringent quoting standards that can be difficult to meet and trading 
activity in LMP Securities can vary greatly on a day to day basis. 
Further, the proposed change is designed to enhance market quality on 
the Exchange by making the Tape B Quoting Tier more achievable for

Members. Making the Tape B Quoting Tier more achievable for Members 
will incentivize more Members to seek to meet the Tape B Quoting Tier, 
which will further enhance market quality on the Exchange, to the 
benefit of all participants. Stated another way, the Exchange believes 
that the Tape B Quoting Tier enhances market quality on the Exchange in 
two ways: (i) By incentivizing Members to meet certain quoting 
standards in LMP Securities designed to narrow spreads, increase size 
at the inside, and increase liquidity depth on the Exchange in such LMP 
Securities; and (ii) providing an additional rebate for all of a 
qualifying Member's orders that add liquidity in Tape B securities will 
incentivize Members to increase their participation on the Exchange in 
Tape B securities. By making the Tape B Quoting Tier more achievable 
for Members, more Members will seek to and will meet the quoting tier 
and thus enhance liquidity on the Exchange as described above, to the 
benefit of all market participants. Accordingly, the Exchange also 
believes that the proposal will act to enhance liquidity and 
competition across exchanges in LMP Securities and enhance liquidity 
provision in Tape B securities on the Exchange by providing a rebate 
reasonably related to such enhanced market quality to the benefit of 
all investors, thereby promoting the principles discussed in Section 
6(b)(5) of the Act.\12\

    The Exchange notes that it operates in a highly competitive market 
in which market participants can readily direct order flow to competing 
venues if they deem fee levels at a particular venue to be excessive.

(B) Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will 
result in any burden on competition that is not necessary or 
appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act, as amended. The 
Exchange does not believe that the changes burden competition, but 
instead, enhance competition, as these changes are intended to increase 
the competitiveness of the Exchange as it is designed to draw 
additional volume to the Exchange. The Exchange notes that it operates 
in a highly competitive market in which market participants can readily 
direct order flow to competing venues if the deem fee structures to be 
unreasonable or excessive. The proposed changes are generally intended 
to enhance the rebates in Tape B securities, which is intended to 
enhance market quality in LMP Securities and Tape B securities. As 
such, the proposal is a competitive proposal that is intended to add 
additional liquidity to the Exchange, which will, in turn, benefit the 
Exchange and all Exchange participants.

(C) Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Comments on the 
Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants or Others

    The Exchange has not solicited, and does not intend to solicit, 
comments on this proposed rule change. The Exchange has not received 
any written comments from members or other interested parties.

Commission Action

19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \13\ and paragraph (f) of Rule 19b-4 
thereunder.\14\ At any time within 60 days of the filing of the

such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is 
necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of 
investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.
