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.
