Download as PDF 62932 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 234 / Thursday, December 6, 2018 / Notices ten (10) long-term expiration months for SPY.11 C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange neither solicited nor received comments on the proposed rule change. khammond on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES 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) of the Act 12 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) thereunder.13 A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) 14 normally does not become operative prior to 30 days after the date of the filing. However, pursuant to Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii),15 the Commission may designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange has asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative delay so that the proposal may become operative upon filing. The Exchange’s proposal would conform the Exchange’s rules relating to the permitted number of long term expiration months for long-term options on SPY to those of other exchanges.16 Accordingly, the Commission believes that the proposal raises no new or novel regulatory issues, and waiver of the 30day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Commission therefore waives the 30-day operative delay and designates the proposal operative upon filing.17 11 See, e.g., Phlx Rule 1012(a)(i)(D); Miami International Securities Exchange, LLC (‘‘MIAX’’) Rule 406(a); and NYSE Arca, Inc. (‘‘Arca’’) Rule 6.4–O(d)(i). 12 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). 13 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) requires a self-regulatory organization to give the Commission written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a brief description and 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. The Commission has waived this requirement in this case. 14 Id. 15 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6)(iii). 16 See supra note 11. 17 For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay, the Commission has also considered the proposed rule’s impact on VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:35 Dec 04, 2018 Jkt 247001 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the 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.
