The Exchange asserts that the proposed rule change, which is intended to rebrand an approved service, will serve the Act’s goals by ensuring that the Exchange’s rules use current terminology. The Exchange further believes the proposed change is ministerial and is intended to eliminate any potential investor confusion related to the service when it is introduced under a new name, (Order Approving Proposed Rule Change, as Modified by Amendment No. 1 Thereto, Introducing NYSE OptX) (SR–NYSEMKT–2016– 102) (‘‘NYSE OptX Rule Filing’’).

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

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

    The Exchange proposes to rename NYSE OptX, an order entry platform 
that would allow for the submission of Qualified Contingent Cross 
(``QCC'') \4\ Orders and orders executed in the Exchange's Customer 
Best Execution (``CUBE'') \5\ Auction by ATP Holders, to NYSE Options 
IMprintTM. The proposed change is available on the

by utilizing auto-match or auto-match limit features provided in the 
Rule. See Rule 971.1NY.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 those 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 recently introduced NYSE OptX,\6\ an order entry 
platform

[[Page 13032]]

that would allow for the submission of QCC Orders and CUBE Orders by 
ATP Holders.\7\ The purpose of this filing is to rename NYSE OptX to 
NYSE Options IMprint. The Exchange is not proposing any change to the 
service established in the NYSE OptX Rule Filing.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 79720 (January 3, 
2017), 82 FR 2427 (January 9, 2017) (Order Approving Proposed Rule 
Change, as Modified by Amendment No. 1 Thereto, Introducing NYSE 
OptX) (SR-NYSEMKT-2016-102) (``NYSE OptX Rule Filing''). See also 
Securities Exchange Act Release No. 79328 (November 16, 2016), 81 FR 
83888 (November 22, 2016) (Notice of Filing of Proposed Rule Change, 
as Modified by Amendment No. 1 Thereto, Introducing NYSE OptX) (SR-
NYSEMKT-2016-102).
    \7\ The term ``ATP Holder'' refers to a natural person, sole 
proprietorship, partnership, corporation, limited liability company 
or other organization, in good standing, that has been issued an 
ATP. An ATP Holder must be a registered broker or dealer pursuant to 
Section 15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. See Rule 
900.2NY.(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange has not yet introduced the service established in the 
NYSE OptX Rule Filing to ATP Holders. As stated in the NYSE OptX Rule 
Filing, the Exchange will announce the effective date of the rebranded 
service in a Trader Update no later than 90 days following approval of 
the NYSE OptX Rule Filing. The NYSE OptX Rule Filing was approved on 
January 3, 2017. The Exchange notes it will publish the Trader Update 
announcing the effective date of the re-branded service, NYSE Options 
IMprint, no later than April 3, 2017. As represented in the NYSE OptX 
Rule Filing, the effective date of NYSE Options IMprint will be no 
later than 270 days following publication of the Trader Update.
2. Statutory Basis
    The proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) \8\ of the 
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ``Act''), in general, and furthers 
the objectives of Section 6(b)(5),\9\ in particular, in that 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, and to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a 
free and open market and a national market system. The Exchange asserts 
that the proposed rule change, which is intended to rebrand an approved 
service, will serve the Act's goals by ensuring that the Exchange's 
rules use current terminology. The Exchange further believes the 
proposed change is ministerial and is intended to eliminate any 
potential investor confusion related to the service when it is 
introduced under a new name, thereby removing impediments to and 
perfecting the mechanism of a free and open market and a national 
market system, and, in general, protecting investors and the public 
interest.

    \8\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b).
    \9\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For these reasons, the Exchange believes that the proposal is 
consistent with the Act.

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    In accordance with Section 6(b)(8) of the Act,\10\ the Exchange 
does not believe that the proposed rule change would impose any burden 
on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of 
the purposes of the Act. Moreover, the Exchange believes that proposed 
rule change does not impact competition in any respect, since it is 
designed to rename a previously approved service.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(8).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    No written comments were solicited or received with respect to the 
proposed rule change.

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

and Rule 19b-4(f)(5) \12\ thereunder.

order-entry or trading system of a self-regulatory organization that 
(i) does not significantly affect the protection of investors or the
