Purpose The Exchange is a participant in an industry-wide pilot program that provides for the quoting and trading of certain option classes in penny increments (the ‘‘Penny Pilot Program’’ or ‘‘Program’’). The Penny Pilot Program allows the quoting and trading of certain option classes in minimum increments of $0.01 for all series in such option classes with a price of less than $3.00; and in minimum increments of $0.05 for all series in such option classes with a price of $3.00 or higher. Options overlying the PowerShares QQQTM (‘‘QQQ’’), SPDR® S&P 500® ETF (‘‘SPY’’), and iShares® Russell 2000 ETF (‘‘IWM’’), however, are quoted and traded in minimum increments of $0.01 for all series regardless of the price. The Penny Pilot Program was initiated at the then existing option exchanges in January 2007 3 and currently includes more than 300 of the most active option classes. The Penny Pilot Program is currently scheduled to expire on June 30, 2017.4 The purpose of the proposed rule change is to extend the Penny Pilot Program in its current format through December 31, 2017. In addition to the extension of the Penny Pilot Program through December 31, 2017, the Exchange proposes to extend one other date in the Rule. 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release Nos. 55154 (January 23, 2007), 72 FR 4743 (February 1, 2007) (SR–CBOE–2006–92); 55161 (January 24, 2007), 72 FR 4754 (February 1, 2007) (SR–ISE–2006–62); 54886 (December 6, 2006), 71 FR 74979 (December 13, 2006) (SR–Phlx–2006–74); 54590 (October 12, 2006), 71 FR 61525 (October 18, 2006) (SR– NYSEArca–2006–73); and 54741 (November 9, 2006), 71 FR 67176 (November 20, 2006) (SR– Amex–2006–106). 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 79432 (November 30, 2016), 81 FR 87990 (December 6, 2016) (SR–MIAX–2016–45) (extending the Penny Pilot Program from December 31, 2016, to June 30, 2017).
