Sunshine Act Meetings, 39802 [2018-17259]

Download as PDF 39802 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 155 / Friday, August 10, 2018 / Notices proposed changes would encourage competition, including by attracting additional liquidity to the Exchange, which would continue to make the Exchange a more competitive venue for, among other things, order execution and price discovery. The Exchange does not believe that the proposed change would impair the ability of any market participants or competing order execution venues to maintain their competitive standing in the financial markets. Further, the incentive would be available to all similarly-situated participants, and, as such, the proposed change would not impose a disparate burden on competition either among or between classes of market participants and may, in fact, encourage competition. The Exchange notes that the proposed rule change merely modifies existing posting tiers that offer additional credits to OTPs that (opt to) meet certain volume thresholds. The proposed change does not impose any new burden or requirement on OTPs, as achieving the modified tiers is voluntary (i.e., an OTP that does not does not seek to achieve additional credits by meeting the modified volume thresholds has no obligation to do so). The Exchange notes that it operates in a highly competitive market in which market participants can readily favor competing venues. In such an environment, the Exchange must continually review, and consider adjusting, its fees and credits to remain competitive with other exchanges. For the reasons described above, the Exchange believes that the proposed rule change reflects this competitive environment. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES C.
