U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). 2 17 CFR 240.19b–4. 7 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(ii). 8 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(2).

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 the Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to make noncontroversial amendments to its rules. The text of the proposed rule change is available from the principal office of the Exchange, at the Commission’s Public Reference Room and also on the Exchange’s Internet Web site at http:// boxexchange.com. 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 Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The purpose of the proposed rule change is to amend Rule 7130(a) to clarify that the BOX HSVF is no longer provided to market participants at no cost. The BOX HSVF is a proprietary product that provides: (i) Trades and trade cancelation information; (ii) bestranked price level to buy and the bestranked price level to sell; (iii) instrument summaries (including information such as high, low, and last trade price and traded volume); (iv) the five best limit prices for each option instrument; (v) request for Quote messages; 3 (vi) PIP Order, Improvement Order and Block Trade Order (Facilitation and Solicitation) information; 4 (vii) orders exposed at NBBO; 5 (viii) instrument dictionary (e.g., strike price, expiration date, underlying symbol, price threshold, and minimum trading increment for 3 See Exchange Rules 100(a)(57), 7070(h) and 8050. 4 As set forth in Exchange Rules 7150 and 7270, respectively. 5 As set forth in Exchange Rules 7130(b)(2) and 8040(d)(6), respectively. E:\FR\FM\11OCN1.SGM 11OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 196 / Tuesday, October 11, 2016 / Notices instruments traded on BOX); (ix) options class and instrument status change notices (e.g., whether an instrument or class is in pre-opening, continuous trading, closed, halted, or prohibited from trading); (x) options class opening time; and (xi) Public Customer bid/ask volume at the best limit. The Exchange recently amended its fees to establish a $750.00 per month fee for receiving the HSVF.6 The Exchange proposes to amend the language in BOX Rule 7130(a)(2) to reflect this change. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposal is consistent with the requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act,7 in general, and Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,8 in particular, in that it is designed to 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. The Exchange believes it is appropriate to make the proposed change to its rules so that market participants and investors have a clear and accurate understanding of the meaning of the Exchange’s rules. By removing obsolete rule text, the Exchange is eliminating any potential for confusion by simplifying the Exchange Rules, ensuring that market participants, regulators and the public can more easily navigate the Exchange’s Rulebook. The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is not unfairly discriminatory because it treats all market participants equally and will not have an adverse impact on any market participant. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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. In particular, the proposed change simply reflects the recent amendments to the BOX Fee Schedule.9 As such, 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. 6 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 78565 (August 12, 2016), 81 FR 55251 (August 18, 2016) (SR–BOX–2016–40). 7 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). 8 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5). 9 See supra note 6. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:12 Oct 07, 2016 Jkt 241001 C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange has neither solicited nor received comments on the proposed rule change. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) 10 of the Act and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) thereunder.11 A proposed rule change filed pursuant to Rule 19b–4(f)(6) under the Act 12 normally does not become operative for 30 days after the date of its filing. However, Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii) 13 permits the Commission to designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange has asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative delay so that the proposal may become operative immediately upon filing. The Exchange believes that waiver of the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest because it will allow the Exchange to immediately reflect recent amendments to its fee schedule, which will eliminate any potential for confusion.14 The Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. Therefore, the Commission hereby waives the operative delay and designates the proposed rule change operative upon filing.15 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule change if 10 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). As required under Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii), the Exchange provided the Commission with written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a brief description and the text of the proposed rule change, at least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission. 12 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). 13 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6)(iii). 14 See supra note 6. 15 For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay, the Commission has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 78c(f). 11 17 PO 00000 Frm 00141 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 70225 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. If the Commission takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule should be approved or disapproved. 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.

Rule 7.16P(f)(5)(G) currently provides that a Day ISO will be rejected if the limit price is at or below the NBB. The Exchange proposes to amend Rule 7.16P(f)(5)(G) to specify that an IOC ISO and a Day ISO are both handled in a similar manner by the Exchange. The Exchange proposes to make this change by deleting the word ‘Day’ from Rule 7.16P(f)(5)(G).8 Given that during a Short Sale Period, an IOC ISO and a Day ISO are both treated in a similar manner, the Exchange believes the proposed change will provide specificity to the Exchange’s rules that during a Short Sale Period, all ISOs will be rejected if the limit price is at or below the NBB. 2. Statutory Basis The proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act,9 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5),10 in particular, because it is designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in facilitating transactions in securities, 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.

(the ``Act''),\1\ and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,\2\ notice is hereby given 
that on September 22, 2016, BOX Options Exchange LLC (the ``Exchange'') 
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (``Commission'') the

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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of the 
Substance of the Proposed Rule Change

    The Exchange proposes to make non-controversial amendments to its 
rules. The text of the proposed rule change is available from the 
principal office of the Exchange, at the Commission's Public Reference 
Room and also on the Exchange's Internet Web site at http://boxexchange.com.

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 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    The purpose of the proposed rule change is to amend Rule 7130(a) to 
clarify that the BOX HSVF is no longer provided to market participants 
at no cost. The BOX HSVF is a proprietary product that provides: (i) 
Trades and trade cancelation information; (ii) best-ranked price level 
to buy and the best-ranked price level to sell; (iii) instrument 
summaries (including information such as high, low, and last trade 
price and traded volume); (iv) the five best limit prices for each 
option instrument; (v) request for Quote messages; \3\ (vi) PIP Order, 
Improvement Order and Block Trade Order (Facilitation and Solicitation) 
information; \4\ (vii) orders exposed at NBBO; \5\ (viii) instrument 
dictionary (e.g., strike price, expiration date, underlying symbol, 
price threshold, and minimum trading increment for

[[Page 70225]]

instruments traded on BOX); (ix) options class and instrument status 
change notices (e.g., whether an instrument or class is in pre-opening, 
continuous trading, closed, halted, or prohibited from trading); (x) 
options class opening time; and (xi) Public Customer bid/ask volume at 
the best limit.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Exchange Rules 100(a)(57), 7070(h) and 8050.
    \4\ As set forth in Exchange Rules 7150 and 7270, respectively.
    \5\ As set forth in Exchange Rules 7130(b)(2) and 8040(d)(6), 
respectively.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange recently amended its fees to establish a $750.00 per 
month fee for receiving the HSVF.\6\ The Exchange proposes to amend the 
language in BOX Rule 7130(a)(2) to reflect this change.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 78565 (August 12, 
2016), 81 FR 55251 (August 18, 2016) (SR-BOX-2016-40).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the proposal is consistent with the 
requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act,\7\ in general, and Section 
6(b)(5) of the Act,\8\ in particular, in that it is designed to 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. The 
Exchange believes it is appropriate to make the proposed change to its 
rules so that market participants and investors have a clear and 
accurate understanding of the meaning of the Exchange's rules. By 
removing obsolete rule text, the Exchange is eliminating any potential 
for confusion by simplifying the Exchange Rules, ensuring that market 
participants, regulators and the public can more easily navigate the 
Exchange's Rulebook. The Exchange believes that the proposed rule 
change is not unfairly discriminatory because it treats all market 
participants equally and will not have an adverse impact on any market 
participant.

    \8\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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. In particular, 
the proposed change simply reflects the recent amendments to the BOX 
Fee Schedule.\9\ As such, 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See supra note 6.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    The Exchange has neither solicited nor received comments on the 
proposed rule change.

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) 
Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public 
interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) 
become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or 
such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become 
effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) \10\ of the Act and Rule 19b-
4(f)(6) thereunder.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A).
    \11\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6). As required under Rule 19b-
4(f)(6)(iii), the Exchange provided the Commission with written 
notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a 
brief description and the text of the proposed rule change, at least 
five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule 
change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A proposed rule change filed pursuant to Rule 19b-4(f)(6) under the 
Act \12\ normally does not become operative for 30 days after the date 
of its filing. However, Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) \13\ permits the 
Commission to designate a shorter time if such action is consistent 
with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange 
has asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative delay so that 
the proposal may become operative immediately upon filing. The Exchange 
believes that waiver of the 30-day operative delay is consistent with 
the protection of investors and the public interest because it will 
allow the Exchange to immediately reflect recent amendments to its fee 
schedule, which will eliminate any potential for confusion.\14\ The 
Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay is 
consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. 
Therefore, the Commission hereby waives the operative delay and 
designates the proposed rule change operative upon filing.\15\

    \13\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6)(iii).
    \14\ See supra note 6.
    \15\ For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay, 
the Commission has considered the proposed rule's impact on 
efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 
78c(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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. If the Commission 
takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to
