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 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 proposes to remove language allowing a change to the minimum quantity of an order with a Minimum Execution Quantity instruction to be included in a Replace message. The proposed amendments would harmonize the rule with the rules of its affiliate exchanges, BYX, BZX, and EDGA.7 A Minimum Execution Quantity enables a User 8 to specify a minimum share amount at which the order will execute. An order with a Minimum Execution Quantity will not execute unless the volume of contra-side liquidity available to execute against the order meets or exceeds the designated minimum. Specifically, Minimum Execution Quantity is an instruction a User may attach to an order with a NonDisplayed 9 instruction or a TIF of IOC requiring the System 10 to execute the order only to the extent that a minimum quantity can be satisfied by execution against a single order or multiple aggregated orders simultaneously. An order with a Minimum Execution Quantity will execute upon entry against a single order or multiple orders if the sum of those orders is equal to or greater than its minimum quantity. Alternatively, a User may elect that an incoming order with a Minimum Execution Quantity to forego executions where multiple resting orders could otherwise be aggregated to satisfy the order’s minimum quantity but do not 7 See supra note 6. term ‘‘User’’ is defined as ‘‘any Member or Sponsored Participant who is authorized to obtain access to the System pursuant to Rule 11.3.’’ See Exchange Rule 1.5(ee). 9 The term ‘‘Non-Displayed’’ is defined as ‘‘[a]n instruction the User may attach to an order stating that the order is not to be displayed by the System on the EDGX Book.’’ See Exchange Rule 11.6(e)(2). 10 The term ‘‘System’’ is defined as ‘‘the electronic communications and trading facility designated by the Board through which securities orders of Users are consolidated for ranking, execution and, when applicable, routing away.’’ See Exchange Rule 1.5(cc). 8 The PO 00000 Frm 00124 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 individually satisfy the order’s minimum quantity instruction. Paragraph (e)(3) of Rule 11.10 states that other than changing a Limit Order to a Market Order, only the price, Stop Price,11 the sell long indicator, Short Sale instruction,12 Max Floor 13 of an order with a Reserve Quantity, size of the order, and the minimum quantity of a Minimum Execution Quantity instruction may be changed with a Replace message. The Exchange recently proposed to amend paragraph (e)(3) of Rule 11.10, Order Execution, to allow a change to the minimum quantity of an order with a Minimum Execution Quantity instruction to be included in a Replace message.14 However, this functionality was never implemented and the Exchange now proposes to remove this language from its rule.15 Removal of this language would, therefore, not result in a change in functionality. The proposal would also harmonize the rule with the rules of its affiliate exchanges, BYX, BZX, and EDGA.16 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that its proposal is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act 17 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act 18 in particular, in that it is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in facilitating transactions in securities, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. The Exchange believes the proposed amendment to paragraph (e)(3) of Rule 11.10 is consistent with the Act in that it will clarify the rule by removing language that reflects functionality not offered by the Exchange, thereby avoiding any potential investor confusion. The proposed amendments would also harmonize the rule with the rules of its affiliate exchanges, BYX, BZX, and EDGA,19 thereby ensuring consistent 11 See Exchange Rules 11.8(a)(1) and (b)(1).

B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will result in any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act, as amended. The proposed amendment to paragraph (e)(3) of Rule 11.10 would not have any impact on competition as it simply clarifies the rule by removing language that reflects functionality not offered by the Exchange.

Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not (i) significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act 20 and subparagraph (f)(6) of Rule 19b–4 thereunder.21 A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) normally does not become operative for 30 days after the date of its filing. However, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) 22 permits the Commission to designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange has requested that the Commission waive the 30-day operative delay so that the proposed rule change will become operative upon filing. The Exchange stated that such waiver would enable the Exchange to immediately clarify its rule by removing language that reflects functionality not offered by the Exchange, and thereby avoid any potential investor confusion. The Commission believes that waiver of the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the 20 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(iii). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6).

Therefore, the Commission hereby waives the operative delay and designates the proposed rule change operative upon filing.23 At any time within 60 days of the filing of such proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. If the Commission takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or disapproved. available for Web site viewing and printing in the Commission’s Public Reference Room, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 20549 on official business days between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Copies of the filing also will be available for inspection and copying at the principal office of the Exchange.

Web site at www.bats.com, at the principal office of the Exchange, and

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 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 proposes to remove language allowing a change to the 
minimum quantity of an order with a Minimum Execution Quantity 
instruction to be included in a Replace message. The proposed 
amendments would harmonize the rule with the rules of its affiliate 
exchanges, BYX, BZX, and EDGA.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See supra note 6.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A Minimum Execution Quantity enables a User \8\ to specify a 
minimum share amount at which the order will execute. An order with a 
Minimum Execution Quantity will not execute unless the volume of 
contra-side liquidity available to execute against the order meets or 
exceeds the designated minimum. Specifically, Minimum Execution 
Quantity is an instruction a User may attach to an order with a Non-
Displayed \9\ instruction or a TIF of IOC requiring the System \10\ to 
execute the order only to the extent that a minimum quantity can be 
satisfied by execution against a single order or multiple aggregated 
orders simultaneously. An order with a Minimum Execution Quantity will 
execute upon entry against a single order or multiple orders if the sum 
of those orders is equal to or greater than its minimum quantity. 
Alternatively, a User may elect that an incoming order with a Minimum 
Execution Quantity to forego executions where multiple resting orders 
could otherwise be aggregated to satisfy the order's minimum quantity 
but do not individually satisfy the order's minimum quantity 
instruction.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ The term ``User'' is defined as ``any Member or Sponsored 
Participant who is authorized to obtain access to the System 
pursuant to Rule 11.3.'' See Exchange Rule 1.5(ee).
    \9\ The term ``Non-Displayed'' is defined as ``[a]n instruction 
the User may attach to an order stating that the order is not to be 
displayed by the System on the EDGX Book.'' See Exchange Rule 
11.6(e)(2).
    \10\ The term ``System'' is defined as ``the electronic 
communications and trading facility designated by the Board through 
which securities orders of Users are consolidated for ranking, 
execution and, when applicable, routing away.'' See Exchange Rule 
1.5(cc).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Paragraph (e)(3) of Rule 11.10 states that other than changing a 
Limit Order to a Market Order, only the price, Stop Price,\11\ the sell 
long indicator, Short Sale instruction,\12\ Max Floor \13\ of an order 
with a Reserve Quantity, size of the order, and the minimum quantity of 
a Minimum Execution Quantity instruction may be changed with a Replace 
message. The Exchange recently proposed to amend paragraph (e)(3) of 
Rule 11.10, Order Execution, to allow a change to the minimum quantity 
of an order with a Minimum Execution Quantity instruction to be 
included in a Replace message.\14\ However, this functionality was 
never implemented and the Exchange now proposes to remove this language 
from its rule.\15\ Removal of this language would, therefore, not 
result in a change in functionality. The proposal would also harmonize 
the rule with the rules of its affiliate exchanges, BYX, BZX, and 
EDGA.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Exchange Rules 11.8(a)(1) and (b)(1).
    \12\ See Exchange Rule 11.6(o).
    \13\ See Exchange Rule 11.6(m)(1).
    \14\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 81457 (August 22, 
2017), 82 FR 40812 (August 28, 2017) (SR-BatsEDGX-2017-34).
    \15\ While the rule change became operative on September 11, 
2017 and the Exchange's rules were then updated to reflect the 
change, no Member has attempted to change an order's Minimum 
Execution Quantity via a Replace message.
    \16\ See supra note 6.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that its proposal is consistent with Section 
6(b) of the Act \17\ in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 
6(b)(5) of the Act \18\ in particular, in that it is designed to 
promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation 
and coordination with persons engaged in facilitating transactions in 
securities, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a 
free and open market and a national market system and, in general, to 
protect investors and the public interest. The Exchange believes the 
proposed amendment to paragraph (e)(3) of Rule 11.10 is consistent with 
the Act in that it will clarify the rule by removing language that 
reflects functionality not offered by the Exchange, thereby avoiding 
any potential investor confusion. The proposed amendments would also 
harmonize the rule with the rules of its affiliate exchanges, BYX, BZX, 
and EDGA,\19\ thereby ensuring consistent

rules amongst the Exchange and its affiliates.

    \18\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).

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

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

    The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will 
result in any burden on competition that is not necessary or 
appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act, as amended. The 
proposed amendment to paragraph (e)(3) of Rule 11.10 would not have any 
impact on competition as it simply clarifies the rule by removing 
language that reflects functionality not offered by the Exchange.

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

    No comments were solicited or received on the proposed rule change.

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

    Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not (i) 
significantly affect the protection of investors or the public 
interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) 
become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or 
such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become 
effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act \20\ and 
subparagraph (f)(6) of Rule 19b-4 thereunder.\21\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \20\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(iii).
    \21\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6). As required under Rule 19b-
4(f)(6)(iii), the Exchange provided the Commission with written 
notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a 
brief description and the text of the proposed rule change, at least 
five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule 
change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b-4(f)(6) normally does 
not become operative for 30 days after the date of its filing. However, 
Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) \22\ permits the Commission to designate a 
shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of 
investors and the public interest. The Exchange has requested that the 
Commission waive the 30-day operative delay so that the proposed rule 
change will become operative upon filing. The Exchange stated that such 
waiver would enable the Exchange to immediately clarify its rule by 
removing language that reflects functionality not offered by the 
Exchange, and thereby avoid any potential investor confusion. The 
Commission believes that waiver of the 30-day operative delay is 
consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest 
because it would enable the Exchange to update its rule without delay. 
Therefore, the Commission hereby waives the operative delay and 
designates the proposed rule change operative upon filing.\23\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \22\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6)(iii).
    \23\ For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay, 
the Commission also has considered the proposed rule's impact on 
efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 
78c(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At any time within 60 days of the filing of such proposed rule 
change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule 
change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or 
appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or 
otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. If the Commission 
takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to 
determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or 
disapproved.

IV. Solicitation of Comments

arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule 
change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of
