Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and 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 these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The self-regulatory organization 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 On August 10, 2017, the Commission approved a proposed rule change by the Exchange to adopt rules governing auctions, including dissemination of auction-related market data, for securities listed on the Exchange pursuant to Chapter 14 of the IEX Rule Book.8 The Exchange proposes to update its Fee Schedule, pursuant to IEX Rule 15.110(a) and (c), to add new Fee Codes to identify the fees applicable to orders that execute in IEX Auctions. The IEX Auction processes are designed to maximize participation in the auctions in order to provide an efficient price discovery process and greater opportunity for execution at the official auction price. The Exchange believes that fees are an important component of the IEX Auction processes, in that execution fees can influence the trading behavior of Members by creating economic incentives (and disincentives) for Members that participate in IEX Auctions. Thus, the Exchange is proposing fees that are similarly designed to incentivize participation in IEX Auctions in order to further support an efficient price discovery process and greater opportunity for execution at the official auction price. The Exchange proposes to apply the following new Fee Codes: • Executions in the Opening Auction 9 will receive Fee Code ‘‘O’’ • Executions in the Closing Auction 10 will receive Fee Code ‘‘C’’ 8 See Securities and Exchange Act Release No. 81316 (August 4, 2017), 82 FR 37474 (August 10, 2017) (SR–IEX–2017–10). 9 See Rule 11.350(c). 10 See Rule 11.350(d).
