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 [Release No. 34–83846; File No. SR– CboeEDGX–2018–032] August 14, 2018. notice is hereby given that on August 8, 2018, Cboe EDGX Exchange, Inc. (the ‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘EDGX’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II and III below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Exchange has designated the proposed rule change as one establishing or changing a member due, fee, or other charge imposed by the Exchange under Section 19(b)(3)(A)(ii) of the Act 3 and Rule 19b–4(f)(2) thereunder,4 which renders the proposed rule change effective upon filing with the Commission. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to amend its fee schedule for its equity options platform (‘‘EDGX Options’’) to (i) reduce the standard rebates for Complex Orders, Customer (contra NonCustomer) in Penny Pilot (‘‘Penny’’) and 3 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(ii). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(2). 5 The term ‘‘Member’’ is defined as ‘‘any registered broker or dealer that has been admitted to membership in the Exchange.’’ See Exchange Rule 1.5(n). 4 17 PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42175 Non-Penny Pilot (‘‘Non-Penny’’) Securities; (ii) increase the standard rates for Market-Maker orders that remove liquidity in Penny and NonPenny Securities; (iii) increase the standard rate for BAM Contra orders; (iv) amend the Customer Volume Tiers; (v) amend the Complex Customer Penny Tiers; (vi) amend the Complex Customer Non-Penny Tiers; and (vii) and eliminate the Complex Market-Maker Penny and Non-Penny Tiers.6 Complex Order, Customer (Contra NonCustomer) Penny and Non-Penny Rebates Currently, the Exchange applies fee code ZA to Customer complex orders that are executed on the complex order book (‘‘COB’’) with a non-Customer 7 as the contra-party in Penny Securities and provides such orders a rebate of $0.47 per contract. The Exchange also currently applies fee code ZB to Customer complex orders that are executed on the COB with a nonCustomer as the contra-party in NonPenny Securities and provides such orders a rebate of $0.97 per contract. The Exchange proposes to reduce the rebates for these orders. Particularly, the Exchange proposes to reduce the rebate for Customer complex orders with a non-Customer as the contra party in Penny Securities from $0.47 per contract to $0.45 per contract. The Exchange proposes to reduce the rebate for Customer complex orders with a non-Customer as the contra party in Non-Penny Securities from $0.97 per contract to $0.80 per contract. Market Maker Remove Rate, Penny and Non-Penny By way of background, fee codes PT and NT are currently appended to all Market Maker orders in Penny Securities and Non-Penny Securities, respectively, that remove liquidity, and result in a standard fee of $0.19 per contract. The Exchange proposes to increase the standard fee of $0.19 per contract for Market Maker orders in Penny and Non-Penny Securities that remove liquidity to $0.23 per contract. The Exchange notes that this increase is in line with the amounts assessed by other exchanges for similar transactions.8 6 The Exchange initially filed the proposed fee changes on August 1, 2018 (SR–CboeEDGX–2018– 026) for August 1, 2018 effectiveness. On business date August 8, 2018, the Exchange withdrew that filing and submitted this filing. 7 ‘‘Non-Customer’’ applies to any transaction that is not a Customer order.
