Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 8890 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 19 / Tuesday, January 31, 2017 / Notices Auction Reference Price.31 Moreover, the Commission believes that the proposed method for calculating the initial Auction Collars (i.e., the Auction Collar on the opposite side of the trading pressure would be the Price Band in place before the Trading Pause was triggered) would address the concept of mean reversion, as well as avoid a security from trading outside of a price that it would have been permitted to trade before the Trading Pause.32 The Commission believes that extending the Trading Pause and widening the Auction Collar on the side of the order imbalance would be a measured approach to provide additional time to attract offsetting interest, to help to address an imbalance that may not be resolved within the prior Auction Collars, and to reduce the potential for triggering another Trading Pause.33 Also, as the Exchange noted, widening the Auction Collar only in the direction of the order imbalance would address issues relating to the concept of mean reversion.34 Moreover, the Commission notes that the proposal to conduct a LULD Closing Cross pursuant to Nasdaq Rule 4754(b)(6) should a Trading Pause exist at or after 3:50 p.m. would be consistent with the Twelfth Amendment to the Plan. The Commission believes that it is appropriate to preclude requests to review executions as a result of a Halt Auction under Nasdaq Rule 4120(c)(10) as clearly erroneous. The Commission notes that the proposed re-opening procedures would allow for widened collars, which may result in a reopening price that would be away from prior trading prices, but the re-opening price would be the result of a measured and transparent process that reduces the potential that such a trade would be considered erroneous.35 The Commission believes that the proposed enhancements to the Order Imbalance Indicator would further promote transparency around the reopening process following a Trading Pause. Finally, the Commission notes that the proposed amendments to Nasdaq Rule 4210(a)(12)(G) and (H) would remove obsolete rule text and conform the remaining rule text to the Twelfth Amendment to the Plan. Based on the Exchange’s representations mentioned above and in the Notice, and for the foregoing 31 See Notice, supra note 3, at 75882–83. Notice, supra note 3, at 75883. 33 See Notice, supra note 3, at 75882. 34 See Notice, supra note 3, at 75883. 35 See id. reasons, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change, as modified by Amendment Nos. 2 and 3, is consistent with Section 6(b)(5) of the Act 36 and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to a national securities exchange. IV. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,37 that the proposed rule change (SR–NASDAQ– 2016–131), as modified by Amendment Nos. 2 and 3, be, and hereby is, approved. For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.38 Eduardo A. Aleman, Assistant Secretary.
