Pursuant to the provisions of Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on March 22, 2019, Miami PEARL, LLC (‘‘MIAX PEARL’’ or the ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) a proposed rule change as described in Items I and II below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Commission is publishing this notice to 1 15 2 17 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:25 Apr 03, 2019 Jkt 247001 solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange is filing a proposal to amend Rule 510, Minimum Price Variations and Minimum Trading Increments, to specify that replacement classes may be added to the Penny Pilot Program on a quarterly basis, without altering the expiration date of the Penny Pilot Program, which is June 30, 2019.3 The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s website at http://www.miaxoptions.com/rulefilings/pearl at MIAX PEARL’s principal office, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. 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 aspects 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 amend Rule 510, Minimum Price Variations and Minimum Trading Increments, Interpretations and Policies .01, regarding the Penny Pilot Program, to specify that replacement classes may be added to the Penny Pilot Program on a quarterly basis, without altering the expiration date of the Penny Pilot Program, which is June 30, 2019. The Exchange recently filed to extend the Penny Pilot Program until June 30, 2019 (from December 31, 2018) and also updated the rule text to provide that replacement issues may be added to the Pilot on the second trading day following January 1, 2019.4 The proposed rule authorizes the Exchange to replace any option classes in the Penny Pilot Program that have been delisted with the next most actively traded multiply listed options 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 84865 (December 19, 2018), 83 FR 66813 (December 27, 2018) (SR–PEARL–2018–26). 4 See id. PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13347 classes that are not yet included in the Penny Pilot Program, based on trading activity in the previous six months.5 The Exchange now proposes to modify Rule 510, Minimum Price Variations and Minimum Trading Increments, Interpretations and Policies .01, to allow the Exchange to add replacement classes (for Penny Pilot Program classes that have been delisted) on a quarterly basis. The Exchange added replacement classes in January 2019 and would add eligible replacement classes in April, July, and October. The Exchange believes this change would allow the Exchange to update option classes eligible for the Penny Pilot Program (by replacing delisted classes) on a quarterly basis (as opposed to semi-annual) and would enable further analysis of the Penny Pilot Program and a determination of how the Penny Pilot Program should be structured in the future. As is the case today, the Exchange will determine replacement classes based on trading activity in the previous six months (the ‘‘six month lookback’’) but will not use the month immediately preceding the addition of a replacement to the Penny Pilot Program. Thus, a replacement class to be added on the second trading day following April 1, 2019 would be identified based on The Option Clearing Corporation’s trading volume data from September 1, 2018 through February 28, 2019.6 The Exchange believes the six month lookback is appropriate because this time period would help reduce the impact of unusual trading activity as a result of unique market events, such as a corporate action (i.e., it would result in a more reliable measure of average daily trading volume than would a shorter period). This filing does not propose any substantive changes to the Penny Pilot Program: All classes currently participating will remain the same and all minimum increments will remain unchanged. The Exchange believes the benefits to public customers and other market participants who will be able to express their true prices to buy and sell options have been demonstrated to outweigh the increase in quote traffic. In addition, the proposed change would align the Exchange’s rules to the rules of competing options exchanges that 5 See Exchange Rule 510, Interpretations and Policies .01. 6 Exchange Rule 510, Interpretations and Policies .01 continues to obligate the Exchange to announce the replacement classes by a Listings Alert.
