Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on June 20, 2017, Miami International Securities Exchange, LLC (‘‘MIAX Options’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I and II below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of the Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange is filing a proposal to amend Exchange Rules 307, Position Limits, and 309, Exercise Limits, to extend the pilot program that eliminates the position and exercise limits for physically-settled options on the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust (‘‘SPY Pilot Program’’). 1 15 2 17 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:32 Jun 29, 2017 Jkt 241001 The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site at https://www.miaxoptions.com/rulefilings, at MIAX’s principal office, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange 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 these 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 aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose Exchange Rules 307, Position Limits, and 309, Exercise Limits, establish position and exercise limits for aggregate positions in option contracts traded on the Exchange. Interpretations and Policies .01 to Rule 307 lists specific position limits for options on specific underlying securities, and Interpretations and Policies .01 to Rule 309 lists specific exercise limits for options on specific underlying securities. Among the listed specific underlying securities is the SPDR® S&P 500® ETF Trust (‘‘SPY’’). Currently, each of these Rules provides that there is no position limit and no exercise limit on options overlying SPY. The position and exercise limits for options overlying SPY in each of these Rules are the subject of a pilot program, which is scheduled to expire on July 12, 2017.3 The Exchange proposes to amend Exchange Rule 307, Interpretations and Policies .01, and Exchange Rule 309, Interpretations and Policies .01, to extend the duration of the SPY Pilot Program through July 12, 2018. There are no substantive changes being proposed to the SPY Pilot Program. The Exchange affirms its consideration of several factors that support the proposal to establish and extend the SPY Pilot Program, which include: (1) The liquidity of the option and the underlying security; (2) the market 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 78120 (June 22, 2016), 81 FR 42032 (June 28, 2016) (SR– MIAX–2016–17) (extending the SPY Pilot Program to July 12, 2017). PO 00000 Frm 00131 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29951 capitalization of the underlying security and the securities that make up the S&P 500 Index; (3) options reporting requirements; and (4) financial requirements imposed by MIAX Options and the Commission. The Exchange notes that it is not aware of any problems created by the current SPY Pilot Program and does not foresee any problems with the proposed extension. The Exchange has formally submitted a Report for the SPY Pilot Program as part of this filing.4 In addition, the Exchange represents that if it chooses to extend or seek permanent approval of the SPY Pilot Program, the Exchange will submit another SPY Pilot Program Report at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the extended SPY Pilot Program time period which would cover the period between reports. The SPY Pilot Program Report will compare the impact of the pilot program, if any, on the volumes of SPY options and the volatility in the price of the underlying SPY contract, particularly at expiration. The SPY Pilot Program Report will also detail the size and different types of strategies employed with respect to positions established in SPY options; note whether any problems, in the underlying SPY ETF or otherwise, arose as a result of the no-limit approach; and include any other information that may be useful in evaluating the effectiveness of the SPY Pilot Program. In preparing the Pilot Report, the Exchange will utilize various data elements such as volume and open interest. In addition the Exchange would make available to Commission staff data elements relating to the effectiveness of the SPY Pilot Program. The Exchange proposes to extend the SPY Pilot Program in order for the Exchange and the Commission to have additional time to evaluate the Pilot and its effect on the market and to determine whether to seek permanent approval. Prior to the expiration of the SPY Pilot Program and based upon the findings of the SPY Pilot Program Report, the Exchange will be able to either extend the SPY Pilot Program, adopt the SPY Pilot Program on a permanent basis, or terminate the SPY Pilot Program. If the SPY Pilot Program is not extended or adopted on a permanent basis by the expiration of the extended SPY Pilot Program, the position limits for options overlying SPY would revert to limits in effect prior to the commencement of the SPY Pilot Program. 4 See E:\FR\FM\30JNN1.SGM Exhibit 3 attached hereto [sic]. 30JNN1
