Summary of the Proposed Rule Change [Release No. 34–80097; File No. SR– NYSEMKT–2016–103] The Exchange states that it does not currently trade any securities on a UTP basis. The Exchange proposes new rules to trade all Tape A and Tape C symbols, on a UTP basis, on its new trading platform, Pillar.7 In addition, the Exchange proposes to adopt rules for the trading of the following types of Exchange-Traded Products: 8 Equity Linked Notes; Investment Company Units; Index-Linked Exchangeable Notes; Equity Gold Shares; Equity Index-Linked Securities; CommodityLinked Securities; Currency-Linked Securities; Fixed-Income Index-Linked Securities; Futures-Linked Securities; Multifactor-Index-Linked Securities; Trust Certificates; Currency and Index Warrants; Portfolio Depositary Receipts; Trust Issued Receipts; CommodityBased Trust Shares; Currency Trust Shares; Commodity Index Trust Shares; Commodity Futures Trust Shares; Partnership Units; Paired Trust Shares; Trust Units; Managed Fund Shares; and Managed Trust Securities.9 The Exchange represents that the proposed rules for these ETPs are substantially identical (other than with respect to certain non-substantive and technical amendments) to the rules of the NYSE Arca Equities exchange for the qualification, listing, and trading of these ETPs.10 According to the Exchange, it will trade securities pursuant to UTP only on its Pillar platform, not on its current trading platform. Further, the Exchange states that it does not at this time intend to list ETPs pursuant to the proposed rules. The Exchange does not propose to change any of the current rules of the Exchange pertaining to the listing and trading of ETPs in the NYSE MKT Company Guide or in its other rules.

I. Summary of the Proposed Rule Change

    The Exchange states that it does not currently trade any securities 
on a UTP basis. The Exchange proposes new rules to trade all Tape A and 
Tape C symbols, on a UTP basis, on its new trading platform, Pillar.\7\ 
In addition, the Exchange proposes to adopt rules for the trading of 
the following types of Exchange-Traded Products: \8\ Equity Linked 
Notes; Investment Company Units; Index-Linked Exchangeable Notes; 
Equity Gold Shares; Equity Index-Linked Securities; Commodity-Linked 
Securities; Currency-Linked Securities; Fixed-Income Index-Linked 
Securities; Futures-Linked Securities; Multifactor-Index-Linked 
Securities; Trust Certificates; Currency and Index Warrants; Portfolio 
Depositary Receipts; Trust Issued Receipts; Commodity-Based Trust 
Shares; Currency Trust Shares; Commodity Index Trust Shares; Commodity 
Futures Trust Shares; Partnership Units; Paired Trust Shares; Trust 
Units; Managed Fund Shares; and Managed Trust Securities.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ According to the Exchange, on January 29, 2015, the Exchange 
announced the implementation of Pillar, which is an integrated 
trading technology platform designed to use a single specification 
for connecting to the equities and options markets operated by the 
Exchange and its affiliates, NYSE Arca, Inc. (``NYSE Arca'') and New 
York Stock Exchange LLC. See Trader Update dated January 29, 2015, 
available at https://www.nyse.com/publicdocs/nyse/markets/nyse/Pillar_Trader_Update_Jan_2015.pdf.
    \8\ The Exchange is proposing to define the term ``Exchange 
Traded Product'' to mean a security that meets the definition of 
``derivative securities product'' in Rule 19b-4(e) under the 
Exchange Act. This proposed definition is identical to the 
definition of ``Derivatives Securities Product'' in NYSE Arca 
Equities Rule 1.1(bbb).
    \9\ See Notice, supra note 3.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange represents that the proposed rules for these ETPs are 
substantially identical (other than with respect to certain non-
substantive and technical amendments) to the rules of the NYSE Arca 
Equities exchange for the qualification, listing, and trading of these 
ETPs.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Notice, supra note 3, at 86750, n.6 (citing NYSE Arca 
Equities Rules 5 (Listings) and 8 (Trading of Certain Equities 
Derivatives)).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    According to the Exchange, it will trade securities pursuant to UTP 
only on its Pillar platform, not on its current trading platform. 
Further, the Exchange states that it does not at this time intend to 
list ETPs pursuant to the proposed rules. The Exchange does not propose 
to change any of the current rules of the Exchange pertaining to the 
listing and trading of ETPs in the NYSE MKT Company Guide or in its 
other rules.

II. Proceedings To Determine Whether To Approve or Disapprove SR-
NYSEMKT-2016-103 and Grounds for Disapproval Under Consideration

    The Commission is instituting proceedings pursuant to Section 
19(b)(2)(B) of the Act \11\ to determine whether the proposed rule 
change should be approved or disapproved. Institution of such 
proceedings is appropriate at this time in view of the legal and policy 
issues raised by the proposed rule change. Institution of proceedings 
does not indicate that the Commission has reached any conclusions with 
respect to any of the issues involved. Rather, as described below, the 
Commission seeks and encourages interested persons to provide comments 
on the proposed rule change.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to Section 19(b)(2)(B) of the Act,\12\ the Commission is 
providing notice of the grounds for disapproval under consideration. 
The Commission is instituting proceedings to allow for additional 
analysis of the proposed rule change's consistency with Section 6(b)(5) 
of the Act, which requires, among other things, that the rules of a 
national securities exchange be ``designed to prevent fraudulent and 
manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable 
principles of trade,'' and ``to protect investors and the public 
interest.'' \13\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

III. Procedure: Request for Written Comments

    The Commission requests that interested persons provide written 
submissions of their views, data, and arguments with respect to the 
issues identified above, as well as any other concerns they may have 
with the proposal. In particular, the Commission invites the written 
views of interested persons concerning whether the proposal is 
consistent with Section 6(b)(5) or any other provision of the Act, or 
the rules and regulations thereunder. Although there do not appear to 
be any issues relevant to approval or disapproval that would be 
facilitated by an oral presentation of views, data, or arguments, the 
Commission will consider, pursuant to Rule 19b-4, any request for an 
opportunity to make an oral presentation.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ Section 19(b)(2) of the Act, as amended by the Securities 
Act Amendments of 1975, Pub. L. 94-29 (June 4, 1975), grants the 
Commission flexibility to determine what type of proceeding--either 
oral or notice and opportunity for written comments--is appropriate 
for consideration of a particular proposal by a self-regulatory 
organization. See Securities Act Amendments of 1975, Senate Comm. on 
Banking, Housing & Urban Affairs, S. Rep. No. 75, 94th Cong., 1st 
Sess. 30 (1975).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and 
arguments regarding whether the proposal should be approved or 
disapproved by March 22, 2017. Any person who wishes to file a rebuttal 
to any other person's submission must file that rebuttal by April 5, 
2017. The Commission asks that commenters address the sufficiency of 
the Exchange's statements in support of the proposal, which are set 
forth in the Notice,\15\ in addition to any other comments they may 
wish to submit about the proposed rule change.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See Notice, supra note 3.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In particular, the Commission seeks comment on whether the proposed 
rules regarding ETPs, which would not expressly apply on a continuing 
basis, are consistent with the Act.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ The Commission has recently approved an exchange proposal 
to amend its listing standards to specify continued listing 
requirements for ETPs, to add issuer-notification requirements 
related to failures to comply with the continued listing 
requirements, and to incorporate specific delisting procedures for 
ETPs. See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 79784 (Jan. 12, 2017), 
82 FR 6664 (Jan. 19, 2017) (SR-NASDAQ-2016-135). In addition, the 
Commission's orders approving the generic listing and trading of 
actively managed ETFs relied upon, among other things, the listing 
exchanges' representations that the listing criteria would apply on 
a continuing basis. See, e.g., Securities Exchange Act Releases No. 
78396 (July 22, 2016), 81 FR 49698, 49701 (July 28, 2016) (File No. 
SR-BATS-2015-100); No. 78397 (July 22, 2016), 81 FR 49320, 49324 
(July 27, 2016) (File No. SR-NYSEArca-2015-110); and No. 78918 
(Sept. 23, 2016), 81 FR 67033, 67035 (Sept. 29, 2016) (File No. SR-
NASDAQ-2016-104). Recent Commission orders approving the listing and 
trading of individual ETPs have similarly relied upon 
representations by the listing exchange that all statements and 
representations made regarding (a) the description of the portfolio, 
(b) limitations on portfolio holdings or reference assets, or (c) 
the applicability of exchange rules and surveillance procedures 
shall constitute continued listing requirements. See, e.g., 
Securities Exchange Act Release No. 77920 (May 25, 2016), 81 FR 
35086, 35090 (June 1, 2016) (SR-NYSEArca-2016-46; approving listing 
and trading of shares of the AdvisorShares Cornerstone Small Cap 
ETF); No. 78847 (Sept. 15, 2016), 81 FR 64560, 64562 (Sept. 20, 
2016) (File No. SR-BATS-2016-34; approving listing and trading of 
shares of the ProShares Crude Oil Strategy ETF).
