PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of 1934 (‘‘Exchange Act’’) 2 and Rule 608 thereunder,3 a proposal to amend the Plan (‘‘Twentieth Amendment’’).4 The proposal reflects changes unanimously approved by the Participants. The Twentieth Amendment proposes to: (i) Amend Section II.B of Appendix B, concerning the quarterly reports provided by the Operating Committee to the Commission; and amend the Plan to reflect the name change of the Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc. to NYSE Chicago, Inc. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments from interested persons on the Twentieth Amendment.5 II. Description of the Plan Set forth in this Section II is the statement of the purpose and summary of the Eighteenth Amendment, along with the information required by Rule 608(a)(4) and (5) under the Exchange Act,6 substantially prepared and submitted by the Participants to the Commission.7 A. Statement of Purpose and Summary of the Plan Amendment The Participants filed the Plan with the Commission on April 5, 2011 to create a market-wide limit up-limit down mechanism intended to address extraordinary market volatility in NMS Stocks, as defined in Rule 600(b)(47) of Regulation NMS under the Exchange Act.8 The Plan sets forth procedures that provide for market-wide limit up-limit down requirements to prevent trades in individual NMS Stocks from occurring outside of the specified Price Bands. These limit up-limit down requirements are coupled with Trading Pauses, as defined in Section I(Y) of the Plan, to accommodate more fundamental price moves. In particular, the Participants adopted this Plan to address extraordinary volatility in the securities markets, i.e., significant fluctuations in individual securities’ prices over a short period of time, such as those experienced during the ‘‘Flash Crash’’ on the afternoon of May 6, 2010. As detailed above, the Plan was amended numerous times between 2011 2 15 U.S.C. 78k–1(a)(3).

On April 11, 2019, the Commission approved the eighteenth amendment to the Plan,9 which transitioned the Plan from operating on a pilot to a permanent basis. The eighteenth amendment included changes to the Plan’s Appendix B, ‘‘Data and Reporting,’’ which revised the Participants’ requirements to report data about the Plan’s ongoing operation to the Commission. Under the eighteenth amendment, the Plan requires the Participants to provide to the Commission an annual report assessing the Plan’s performance, quarterly reports providing basic statistics, and ad hoc reports that may be requested by the Commission following significant market events. Section II.B of Appendix B (‘‘Appendix B.II.B’’) concerns the quarterly reports to be provided to the Commission. Appendix B.II.B currently provides that 30 days following the end of each calendar quarter, the Operating Committee shall provide the Commission and make publicly available a report including basic statistics regarding the Plan’s operation (‘‘Monitoring Report’’) during the preceding calendar quarter as well as aggregated data from the previous 12 quarters beginning with the calendar quarter covered by the first Monitoring Report. Appendix B.II.B requires the Monitoring Report to include data on the number and rate of recurrence of Limit States, Straddle States, and Trading Pauses for each month during the calendar quarter, as well as the performance of reopening procedures following a Trading Pause. Appendix B.II.B also currently provides that the Monitoring Report will include data on the number of Clearly Erroneous Executions that occur during the preceding calendar quarter. In addition, Appendix B.II.B currently states that the data in the Monitoring Report should be partitioned by ‘‘category’’ (i.e., type of issue and price range), as well as by the ‘‘time of day’’ of the event. 10 The Participants now propose to amend Appendix B.II.B in order to improve the clarity and transparency of the quarterly reporting requirements. 9 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 85623 (April 11, 2019), 84 FR 16086 (April 17, 2019) (File No. 4–631). 10 In several places in the Notice describing the Monitoring Report requirements, the Participants state that they ‘‘should’’ do certain things or provide certain data. The Commission notes that LULD Plan requires the Participants to meet such obligations and they are not voluntary on the part of the Participants. Therefore, in instances where the Notice states that the Participants ‘‘should’’ include something in the Monitoring Report, the Commission notes that the LULD Plan requires that the data be provided. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:49 Mar 20, 2020 Jkt 250001 The Participants also propose to make a non-substantive amendment to the Plan to reflect the name change of Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc., to NYSE Chicago, Inc. 1. Proposal To Improve Clarity and Transparency of Appendix B.II.B The Participants propose to amend Appendix B.II.B to improve its clarity and transparency by revising and supplementing the current language. In preparing to compile and aggregate the data required for the first quarterly report, the Participants determined that the language of Appendix B.II.B could be improved by, among other things: (a) Emphasizing from the outset that the data should be aggregated across primary listing exchanges, (b) specifying the specific partitions that should be applied to each data point, (c) specifying the specific distribution statistics that should be applied to each data point, and (d) providing additional clarity as to what Reopening data should be included. The Participants emphasize that the intention of this amendment is not to substantively change the requirements in Appendix B.II.B, but to amend the language of Appendix B.II.B to give more complete directions as to the information that should be included in the quarterly Monitoring Reports. a. Data Aggregated Across Primary Listing Exchanges The opening paragraph of Appendix B.II.B currently refers to ‘‘aggregate data,’’ but is not clear that the data for the quarterly Monitoring Report should be aggregated across primary listing exchanges, as opposed to aggregated in some other fashion. The Participants propose to amend this paragraph to make clear that the quarterly Monitoring Report will include basic statistics aggregated across primary listing exchanges regarding the Plan’s operation during the preceding calendar quarter, as well as data aggregated across exchanges from the previous 12 quarters beginning with the calendar covered by the first Monitoring Report. b. Specific Partitions To Apply to Each Data Category Appendix B.II.B currently contains provisions entitled ‘‘Partition stocks by category’’ and ‘‘Partition by time of day.’’ The Participants propose to replace this text to specify more clearly (i) which partitions apply to the data for Limit States, Trading Pauses, Straddle States, and Clearly Erroneous Events, and which partitions apply to the data for Reopenings, which differ; (ii) the 18 different category partitions that apply PO 00000 Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16409 to the data for Limit States, Trading Pauses, Straddle States, and Clearly Erroneous Events; (iii) the specific timeframes covered by each time-of-day partition; and (iv) that the data provided for Reopenings must take into account the differences between manual and automated reopenings. First, in preparing to compile the data required for the first quarterly report, the Participants determined that the partitions listed in the current Appendix B.II.B reasonably apply to the data for Limit States, Trading Pauses, Straddle States, and Clearly Erroneous Events, and that the Reopenings data requires different partitions. The Participants therefore propose to restructure Appendix B.II.B into two subsections, each with their own ‘‘Definitions’’ section that specifies the partitions that would be applicable to that subsection. Specifically, proposed Appendix B.II.B.1.a would define the partitions that would apply to data about Limit States, Trading Pauses, Straddle States, and Clearly Erroneous Events, and proposed Appendix B.II.B.2.a would define the partitions that would apply to data about Reopenings. Second, the current version of Appendix B.II.B. lists only eight separate ‘‘categories’’ into which securities should be partitioned, but the full language of that provision indicates that 18 categories are actually intended. Appendix B.II.B currently lists the first three categories as ‘‘Tier 1 non-ETP issues > $3.00,’’ ‘‘Tier 1 non-ETP >= $0.75 and <= $3.00,’’ and ‘‘Tier 1 nonETP issues < $0.75,’’ and then lists five other categories of securities that should also be divided ‘‘in each of the above categories.’’ The Participants understand this language to mean that each of the six categories of securities listed—that is, Tier 1 non-ETPs, Tier 1 non-leveraged ETPs, Tier 1 leveraged ETPs, Tier 2 non-ETPs, Tier 2 nonleveraged ETPs, and Tier 2 leveraged ETPs—should each be further subdivided into three subcategories: Greater than $3.00, between $0.75 and $3.00, and less than $0.75. As such, the Participants propose to clearly list in the amended Appendix B.II.B.1.a.i all 18 of the categories of securities into which the Limit State, Trading Pause, Straddle State, and Clearly Erroneous Events data should be partitioned: (1) Tier 1 non-ETP securities > $3.00 (2) Tier 1 non-ETP securities >= $0.75 and <= $3.00 (3) Tier 1 non-ETP securities < $0.75 (4) Tier 1 non-leveraged ETPs > $3.00 (5) Tier 1 non-leveraged ETPs >= $0.75 and <= $3.00 E:\FR\FM\23MRN1.SGM 23MRN1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 16410 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 56 / Monday, March 23, 2020 / Notices (6) Tier 1 non-leveraged ETPs < $0.75 (7) Tier 1 leveraged ETPs > $3.00 (8) Tier 1 leveraged ETPs >= $0.75 and <= $3.00 (9) Tier 1 leveraged ETPs < $0.75 (10) Tier 2 non-ETPs > $3.00 (11) Tier 2 non-ETPs >= $0.75 and <= $3.00 (12) Tier 2 non-ETPs < $0.75 (13) Tier 2 non-leveraged ETPs > $3.00 (14) Tier 2 non-leveraged ETPs >= $0.75 and <= $3.00 (15) Tier 2 non-leveraged ETPs < $0.75 (16) Tier 2 leveraged ETPs > $3.00 (17) Tier 2 leveraged ETPs >= $0.75 and <= $3.00 (18) Tier 2 leveraged ETPs < $0.75 Third, the current Appendix B.II.B.3 states that the ‘‘time of day’’ partitions are ‘‘Opening (prior to 9:45 a.m. ET),’’ ‘‘Regular (between 9:45 a.m. ET and 3:35 p.m. ET),’’ ‘‘Closing (after 3:35 p.m. ET),’’ and ‘‘Within five minutes of a Trading Pause re-open or IPO open.’’ These partitions, however, assume that all trading days are full trading days, and do not account for partial trading days where the markets are scheduled to close early, such as the day after Thanksgiving and December 24. The Participants accordingly propose to amend Appendix B.II.B to add new subsection 1.a.ii, to specify that ‘‘Time of Day’’ means the following time spans: (1) Opening (prior to 9:45 a.m. ET) (2) Regular (between 9:45 a.m. ET and 25 minutes prior to the end of core trading hours) (3) Closing (the last 25 minutes of core trading hours) (4) Within five minutes of a Trading Pause reopen or IPO open Fourth, the current Appendix B.II.B does not include any language partitioning Reopenings data between manual and automated reopenings.11 The Participants accordingly propose to amend Appendix B.II.B to add new subsection 2.a.i requiring that they partition Reopening data by whether the reopening is manual or automated. The Participants also propose to add new subsection 2.a.iii, to require that the data for Reopenings be partitioned by the ‘‘Length of the Trading Pause,’’ which would be defined as: • Less than 6 minutes (for manual reopenings) or no extensions of the Trading Pause (for automated reopenings); • 6 to 10 minutes (for manual reopenings) or one extension of the 11 For purposes of Appendix B, a reopening is considered ‘‘manual’’ if it is facilitated by a member of an exchange (such as a Designated Market Maker on NYSE) that has obligations under that exchange’s rules to facilitate the reopening process. (All reopenings on NYSE are manual.) VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:49 Mar 20, 2020 Jkt 250001 Trading Pause (for automated reopenings); • more than 10 minutes (for manual reopenings) or more than one extension of the Trading Pause (for automated reopenings). c. Specific Distribution Statistics To Apply to Each Data Category for Limit States, Trading Pauses, Straddle States, and Clearly Erroneous Events The current Appendix II.B.II states in general terms that the Monitoring Report should include data on the ‘‘[n]umber of Limit States, Trading Pauses, and Straddle States per day, including distribution statistics such as the mean, median, minimum and maximum percentiles,’’ and the ‘‘[n]umber of NMS Stocks that experience more than one Limit State, Trading Pause, or Straddle State in a single day including the length of each Limit State, Trading Pause, and Straddle State per day.’’ The current version also states generally that Participants should ‘‘[P]artition stocks by category’’ and ‘‘[P]artition by time of day,’’ even though such partitions do not reasonably apply to every data set required to be supplied in the Monitoring Report. The Participants propose to add clarity to these reporting requirements by amending Appendix B.II.B to specify the precise distribution statistics and partitions to apply to each data request. Accordingly, the Participants propose to amend Appendix B.II.B.1.b clarify that the Monitoring Report would include: For Limit States • Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 25th percentile, and maximum) on the number of Limit States per day, broken out by Category and Time of Day. • Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 25th percentile, and maximum) on the number of NMS Stocks that experienced more than one Limit State on a single day, broken out by Category. • Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th percentile, and 99th percentile) on the number of Limit States experienced per day by individual NMS Stocks that had more than one Limit State on a single day, broken out by Category. • Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th percentile, and 99th percentile) on the total length of Limit States experienced per day by individual NMS Stocks that had more than one Limit State on a single day, broken out by Category. PO 00000 Frm 00098 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 For Trading Pauses • Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 25th percentile, and maximum) on the number of Trading Pauses per day, broken out by Category and Time of Day. • Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 25th percentile, and maximum) on the number of NMS Stocks that experienced more than one Trading Pause on a single day, broken out by Category. • Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th percentile, and maximum) on the number of Trading Pauses per day experienced by individual NMS Stocks having more than one Trading Pause on a single day, broken out by Category. For Straddle States • Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 25th percentile, and maximum) on the number of Straddle States per day, broken out by Category and Time of Day. • Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 25th percentile, and maximum) on the number of NMS Stocks that experienced more than one Straddle State on a single day, broken out by Category. • Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th percentile, and 99.9th percentile) on the total time spent in a Straddle State per day for individual NMS Stocks experiencing one or more Straddle States on a single day, broken out by Category For Clearly Erroneous Events • The number of Clearly Erroneous Events per day for all NMS Stocks that occurred during the time when Price Bands re disseminated by the Processor, broken out by Category and Time of Day. d. Additional Clarity on Reopening Data Finally, regarding Reopening data, Appendix B.II.B currently states that the Monitoring Report should include the ‘‘[n]umber of times an automated reopening process is extended for and the length of the Trading Pause,’’ ‘‘[w]hether the reopening process ended in a trade,’’ ‘‘[t]he price calculated by an automated reopening process for an NMS Stock existing a Trading Pause,’’ and ‘‘[f]or the five minutes following the conclusion of a Trading Pause, the highest price of all last sale eligible trades, the lowest price of all last sale eligible trades, and the average price of all last sale eligible trades.’’ These provisions, however, do not specify the specific distribution statistics or partitions that the Participants should apply to any of E:\FR\FM\23MRN1.SGM 23MRN1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 56 / Monday, March 23, 2020 / Notices these data requests. Additionally, the Participants believe that the quality and utility of the Monitoring Report will be enhanced if they supply additional information about Reopening statistics, including how the Trading Pause ended (whether in a trade, a quote, or a potential closing auction), whether the Trading Pause was preceded by a Limit Up state versus a Limit Down state, and the percentage price change between the price that triggered the Trading Pause and the reopening price on exiting the Trading Pause. Accordingly, the Participants propose to amend the provisions in Appendix B.II.B pertaining to Reopenings to specify that the Monitoring Report should include: • The number of Trading Pauses per month, broken out by (a) Type of Reopening, (b) Category, and (c) Length of the Trading Pause. • Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th percentile, and 99th percentile) on the duration of each Trading Pause, broken out by (a) Type of Reopening and (b) Category. • The number of Trading Pauses ending in a (a) trade; (b) quote; and (c) potential closing auction, broken out by (i) Type of Reopening, (ii) Category, and (iii) Length of Trading Pause. • For Trading Pauses in NMS Stocks preceded by a Limit Up state, monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th percentile, and 99th percentile) on the percentage price change from the Limit Up pricing that triggered the Trading Pause to the reopening price on exiting the Trading Pause (i.e., the reopening trade or midpoint price), broken out by (a) Category and (b) whether the Trading Pause ended in a trade or (c) in a quote (i.e., the reopening price was a midpoint). • For Trading Pauses in NMS Stocks preceded by a Limit Down state, monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th percentile, and 99th percentile) on the percentage price change from the Limit Down pricing that triggered the Trading Pause to the reopening price on exiting the Trading Pause (i.e., the reopening trade or midpoint price), broken out by (a) Category and (b) whether the Trading Pause ended in a trade or (c) in a quote (i.e., the reopening price was a midpoint). • For Trading Pauses in NMS Stocks where the reopening process ended in a trade or quote (with resulting reference price equal to the midpoint of that quote), monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th percentile, and 99th percentile) on the percentage price change from the reopening price on exiting the Trading Pause (i.e., the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Mar 20, 2020 Jkt 250001 reopening trade or midpoint price) to (a) the highest price of all last sale eligible trades, (b) the lowest price of all last sale eligible trades; and (c) the tradeweighted average price of all last sale eligible trades for the five minutes following the conclusion of the Trading Pause, broken out by (i) Category, (ii) whether the Trading Pause was preceded by a Limit Up state or (iii) a Limit Down state, and (iv) whether the Trading Pause ended in a trade or (v) in a quote (i.e., the reopening price was a midpoint). The Participants believe that the proposed amendments described above will enhance clarity, improve transparency, and provide direction to the Participants in compiling and aggregating the data required in the quarterly Monitoring Reports. 2. Proposal To Change Name of Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc. to NYSE Chicago, Inc. The Participants also propose to make a non-substantive amendment to the Plan to reflect the name change of Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc. to NYSE Chicago, Inc., and the change of its address from 440 South LaSalle Street, Chicago, Illinois 60605 to 11 Wall Street, New York, New York, 10005. On October 18, 2018, the Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc. filed a proposed rule change for immediate effectiveness to amend, among other things, its rules to reflect the change of its name to NYSE Chicago, Inc.12 B. Governing or Constituent Documents The governing documents of the Processor, as defined in Section I(P) of the Plan, will not be affected by this proposed amendment to the Plan. C. Implementation of Amendment The Participants are filing this proposed amendment pursuant to Rule 608(b)(1) of Regulation NMS under the Exchange Act.13 D. Development and Implementation Phases The Plan has been fully implemented, and the amendments proposed herein are immediately effective, as noted above.14 12 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 84494 (October 26, 2018), 83 FR 54953 (November 1, 2018) (SR–CHX–2018–05). 13 17 CFR 242.608. 14 The Commission notes that the Exchanges incorrectly stated in the Transmittal Letter, supra note 4, that the proposed amendments are effective upon filing. These amendments are being proposed pursuant to Rule 608(b)(1) of Regulation NMS under the Exchange Act, and the Commission is publishing the proposed amendments for public comment as required by Rule 608(b)(1). The PO 00000 Frm 00099 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16411 E. Analysis of Impact on Competition The Participants believe that the proposed amendment does not impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Exchange Act’’). The proposed amendments to Appendix B.II.B of the Plan pertain to the obligations of the Participants and the Operating Committee to provide periodic reports to the Commission about the Plan’s ongoing operation. As such, they do not apply directly to any market participants and would not impose a competitive burden on one category of market participant in favor of another category of market participant. For the same reasons, the Participants do not believe that the proposed Plan introduces terms that are unreasonably discriminatory for the purposes of Section 11A(c)(1)(D) of the Exchange Act. F. Written Understanding or Agreements Relating to Interpretation of, or Participation in, Plan The Participants have no written understandings or agreements relating to interpretation of the Plan. G. Approval of Amendment of the Plan Each of the Participants has approved the amendment in accordance with Section III(C) of the Plan. Specifically, on February 12, 2020, the Operating Committee, duly constituted and chaired by Mr. Robert Books of Cboe Global Markets, Inc., voted unanimously to amend the Plan as set forth herein. The Participants also received and incorporated feedback from the Plan Advisory Committee in preparing this proposal. H.

Price Bands (A) Calculation and Dissemination of Price Bands (1) The Processor for each NMS stock shall calculate and disseminate to the public a Lower Price Band and an Upper Price Band during Regular VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Mar 20, 2020 Jkt 250001 Trading Hours for such NMS Stock. The Price Bands shall be based on a Reference Price for each NMS Stock that equals the arithmetic mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS stock over the immediately preceding five-minute period (except for periods following openings and reopenings, which are addressed below). If no Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS Stock have occurred over the immediately preceding five-minute period, the previous Reference Price shall remain in effect. The Price Bands for an NMS Stock shall be calculated by applying the Percentage Parameter for such NMS Stock to the Reference Price, with the Lower Price Band being a Percentage Parameter below the Reference Price, and the Upper Price Band being a Percentage Parameter above the Reference Price. The Price Bands shall be calculated during Regular Trading Hours. Between 3:35 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. ET, or in the case of an early scheduled close, during the last 25 minutes of trading before the early scheduled close, the Price Bands shall be calculated by applying double the Percentage Parameters set forth in Appendix A for (i) all Tier 1 NMS Stocks and (ii) Tier 2 NMS Stocks priced equal to or below $3.00. If the Processor has not yet disseminated Price Bands, but a Reference Price is available, a trading center may calculate and apply Price Bands based on the same Reference Price that the Processor would use for calculating such Price Bands until such trading center receives Price Bands from the Processor. If, under Section VII(B)(2), the Primary Listing Exchange notifies the Processor that it is unable to reopen an NMS Stock due to a systems or technology issue and it has not declared a Regulatory Halt, the Processor will calculate and disseminate Price Bands by applying triple the Percentage Parameters set forth in Appendix A for the first 30 seconds such Price Bands are disseminated. (2) The Processor shall calculate a Pro-Forma Reference Price on a continuous basis during Regular Trading Hours, as specified in Section V(A)(1) of the Plan. If a Pro-Forma Reference Price has not moved by 1% or more from the Reference Price currently in effect, no new Price Bands shall be disseminated, and the current Reference Price shall remain the effective Reference Price. When the Pro-Forma Reference Price has moved by 1% or more from the Reference Price currently in effect, the Pro-Forma Reference Price shall become the Reference Price, and the Processor shall disseminate new PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Price Bands based on the new Reference Price; provided, however, that each new Reference Price shall remain in effect for at least 30 seconds. (B) Openings (1) Except when a Regulatory Halt is in effect at the start of Regular Trading Hours, the first Reference Price for a trading day shall be the Opening Price on the Primary Listing Exchange in an NMS Stock if such Opening Price occurs less than five minutes after the start of Regular Trading Hours. During the period less than five minutes after the Opening Price, a Pro-Forma Reference Price shall be updated on a continuous basis to be the arithmetic mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS Stock during the period following the Opening Price (including the Opening Price), and if it differs from the current Reference Price by 1% or more shall become the new Reference Price, except that a new Reference Price shall remain in effect for at least 30 seconds. Subsequent Reference Prices shall be calculated as specified in Section V(A) of the Plan. (2) If the Opening Price on the Primary Listing Exchange in an NMS Stock does not occur within five minutes after the start of Regular Trading Hours, the first Reference Price for a trading day shall be the arithmetic mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS Stock over the preceding five minute time period, and subsequent Reference Prices shall be calculated as specified in Section V(A) of the Plan. (C) Reopenings (1) Following a Trading Pause in an NMS Stock, and if the Primary Listing Exchange has not declared a Regulatory Halt, if the Primary Listing Exchange reopens trading with a transaction or quotation that does not include a zero bid or zero offer, the next Reference Price shall be the Reopening Price on the Primary Listing Exchange. Subsequent Reference Prices shall be determined in the manner prescribed for normal openings, as specified in Section V(B)(1) of the Plan. If the Primary Listing Exchange notifies the Processor that it is unable to reopen an NMS Stock due to a systems or technology issue, or if the Primary Listing Exchange reopens trading with a quotation that has a zero bid or zero offer, or both, the next Reference Price shall be the last effective Price Band that was in a Limit State before the Trading Pause. Subsequent Reference Prices shall be calculated as specified in Section V(A) of the Plan. E:\FR\FM\23MRN1.SGM 23MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 56 / Monday, March 23, 2020 / Notices (2) Following a Regulatory Halt, the next Reference Price shall be the Opening or Reopening Price on the Primary Listing Exchange if such Opening or Reopening Price occurs within five minutes after the end of the Regulatory Halt, and subsequent Reference Prices shall be determined in the manner prescribed for normal openings, as specified in Section V(B)(1) of the Plan. If such Opening or Reopening Price has not occurred within five minutes after the end of the Regulatory Halt, the Reference Price shall be equal to the arithmetic mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS Stock over the preceding five minute time period, and subsequent Reference Prices shall be calculated as specified in Section V(A) of the Plan. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES VI. Limit Up-Limit Down Requirements (A) Limitations on Trades and Quotations Outside of Price Bands (1) All trading centers in NMS Stocks, including both those operated by Participants and those operated by members of Participants, shall establish, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures that are reasonably designed to prevent trades at prices that are below the Lower Price Band or above the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock. Single-priced opening, reopening, and closing transactions on the Primary Listing Exchange, however, shall be excluded from this limitation. In addition, any transaction that both (i) does not update the last sale price (except if solely because the transaction was reported late or because the transaction was an odd-lot sized transaction), and (ii) is excepted or exempt from Rule 611 under Regulation NMS shall be excluded from this limitation. (2) When a National Best Bid is below the Lower Price Band or a National Best Offer is above the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock, the Processor shall disseminate such National Best Bid or National Best Offer with an appropriate flag identifying it as non-executable. When a National Best Offer is equal to the Lower Price Band or a National Best Bid is equal to the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock, the Processor shall distribute such National Best Bid or National Best Offer with an appropriate flag identifying it as a ‘‘Limit State Quotation’’. (3) All trading centers in NMS Stocks, including both those operated by Participants and those operated by members of Participants, shall establish, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures that are reasonably designed to prevent the display of offers VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Mar 20, 2020 Jkt 250001 below the Lower Price Band and bids above the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock. The Processor shall disseminate an offer below the Lower Price Band or bid above the Upper Price Band that may be submitted despite such reasonable policies and procedures, but with an appropriate flag identifying it as non-executable; provided, however, that any such bid or offer shall not be included in National Best Bid or National Best Offer calculations. (B) Entering and Exiting a Limit State (1) All trading for an NMS Stock shall immediately enter a Limit State if the National Best Offer equals the Lower Price Band and does not cross the National Best Bid, or the National Best Bid equals the Upper Price Band and does not cross the National Best Offer. (2) When trading for an NMS Stock enters a Limit State, the Processor shall disseminate this information by identifying the relevant quotation (i.e., a National Best Offer that equals the Lower Price Band or a National Best Bid that equals the Upper Price Band) as a Limit State Quotation. At this point, the Processor shall cease calculating and disseminating updated Reference Prices and Price Bands for the NMS Stock until either trading exits the Limit State or trading resumes with an opening or reopening as provided in Section V. (3) Trading for an NMS Stock shall exit a Limit State if, within 15 seconds of entering the Limit State, the entire size of all Limit State Quotations are executed or cancelled. (4) If trading for an NMS Stock exits a Limit State within 15 seconds of entry, the Processor shall immediately calculate and disseminate updated Price Bands based on a Reference Price that equals the arithmetic mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS Stock over the immediately preceding five-minute period (including the period of the Limit State). (5) If trading for an NMS Stock does not exit a Limit State within 15 seconds of entry, the Limit State will terminate when the Primary Listing Exchange declares a Trading Pause pursuant to Section VII of the Plan or at the end of Regular Trading Hours. VII. Trading Pauses (A) Declaration of Trading Pauses (1) If trading for an NMS Stock does not exit a Limit State within 15 seconds of entry during Regular Trading Hours, then the Primary Listing Exchange shall declare a Trading Pause for such NMS Stock and shall notify the Processor. (2) The Primary Listing Exchange may also declare a Trading Pause for an NMS PO 00000 Frm 00103 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16415 Stock when an NMS Stock is in a Straddle State, which is when National Best Bid (Offer) is below (above) the Lower (Upper) Price Band and the NMS Stock is not in a Limit State, and trading in that NMS Stock deviates from normal trading characteristics such that declaring a Trading Pause would support the Plan’s goal to address extraordinary market volatility. The Primary Listing Exchange shall develop policies and procedures for determining when it would declare a Trading Pause in such circumstances. If a Trading Pause is declared for an NMS Stock under this provision, the Primary Listing Exchange shall notify the Processor. (3) The Processor shall disseminate Trading Pause information to the public. No trades in an NMS Stock shall occur during a Trading Pause, but all bids and offers may be displayed. (B) Reopening of Trading During Regular Trading Hours (1) Five minutes after declaring a Trading Pause for an NMS Stock, and if the Primary Listing Exchange has not declared a Regulatory Halt, the Primary Listing Exchange shall attempt to reopen trading using its established reopening procedures. The Processor will publish the following information that the Primary Listing Exchange provides to the Processor in connection with such reopening: Auction reference price; auction collars; and number of extensions to the reopening auction. The Trading Pause shall end when the Primary Listing Exchange reports a Reopening Price. (2) The Primary Listing Exchange shall notify the Processor if it is unable to reopen trading in an NMS Stock due to a systems or technology issue and if it has not declared a Regulatory Halt. The Processor shall disseminate this information to the public. (3) Trading centers may not resume trading in an NMS Stock following a Trading Pause without Price Bands in such NMS Stock. (4) The Processor shall update the Price Bands as set forth in Section V(C)(1)–(2) of the Plan after receiving notification from the Primary Listing Exchange of a Reopening Price following a Trading Pause (or a resume message in the case of a reopening quote that has a zero bid or zero offer, or both) or that it is unable to reopen trading following a Trading Pause due to a systems or technology issue, provided that if the Primary Listing Exchange is unable to reopen due to a systems or technology issue, the update to the Price Bands will be no earlier than ten E:\FR\FM\23MRN1.SGM 23MRN1 16416 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 56 / Monday, March 23, 2020 / Notices minutes after the beginning of the Trading Pause. (C) Trading Pauses Within Ten Minutes of the End of Regular Trading Hours (1) If an NMS Stock is in a Trading Pause during the last ten minutes of trading before the end of Regular Trading Hours, the Primary Listing Exchange shall not reopen trading and shall attempt to execute a closing transaction using its established closing procedures. All trading centers may begin trading the NMS Stock when the Primary Listing Exchange executes a closing transaction. (2) If the Primary Listing Exchange does not execute a closing transaction within five minutes after the end of Regular Trading Hours, all trading centers may begin trading the NMS Stock. VIII. Implementation The initial date of Plan operations shall be April 8, 2013. IX. Withdrawal From Plan If a Participant obtains SEC approval to withdraw from the Plan, such Participant may withdraw from the Plan at any time on not less than 30 days’ prior written notice to each of the other Participants.

PO 00000 Frm 00116 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Exchange provides co-location services to Users.5 Among those services is a ‘‘Hot Hands’’ service, which allows Users to use on-site Data Center personnel to maintain User equipment, support network troubleshooting, rack and stack a server in a User’s cabinet; power recycling; and install and document the fitting of cable in a User’s cabinet(s).6 The Hot Hands fee is $100 per half hour. ICE has announced to each User that, starting March 16, 2020, the Data Center will be closed to third parties through March 29, 2020. Pursuant to the ICE contingency plan, the Data Center is being closed to third parties to help avoid the spread of COVID–19, which could negatively impact Data Center functions. The President of the Exchange has taken the actions required under NYSE National Rule 7.1 to close the co-location facility of the Exchange to third parties.7 While the Rule 7.1 closure is in effect, User representatives will not be allowed access to the Data Center. If a User’s equipment requires work while the Rule 7.1 closure is in effect, the User will have no option but to use the Hot Hands service and, absent the proposed waiver, would incur Hot Hands fees for the work. Given that, the Exchange proposes to waive all Hot Hands fees from the date of the closing through March 29, 2020, and to add text to the Hot Hands Fee in the Price List noting the waiver. The Exchange believes that there will be sufficient Data Center staff on-site to comply with User requests for Hot Hands service. The proposed waiver would apply equally to all Users. The proposed fee waiver would not apply differently to distinct types or sizes of market participants. Rather, it would apply uniformly to all Users.

A. Statement of Purpose and Summary of the Plan Amendment

    The Participants filed the Plan with the Commission on April 5, 
2011 to create a market-wide limit up-limit down mechanism intended to 
address extraordinary market volatility in NMS Stocks, as defined in 
Rule 600(b)(47) of Regulation NMS under the Exchange Act.\8\ The Plan 
sets forth procedures that provide for market-wide limit up-limit down 
requirements to prevent trades in individual NMS Stocks from occurring 
outside of the specified Price Bands. These limit up-limit down 
requirements are coupled with Trading Pauses, as defined in Section 
I(Y) of the Plan, to accommodate more fundamental price moves. In 
particular, the Participants adopted this Plan to address extraordinary 
volatility in the securities markets, i.e., significant fluctuations in 
individual securities' prices over a short period of time, such as 
those experienced during the ``Flash Crash'' on the afternoon of May 6, 
2010.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ 17 CFR 242.600(b)(47).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As detailed above, the Plan was amended numerous times between 2011

[[Page 16409]]

and 2019. On April 11, 2019, the Commission approved the eighteenth 
amendment to the Plan,\9\ which transitioned the Plan from operating on 
a pilot to a permanent basis. The eighteenth amendment included changes 
to the Plan's Appendix B, ``Data and Reporting,'' which revised the 
Participants' requirements to report data about the Plan's ongoing 
operation to the Commission. Under the eighteenth amendment, the Plan 
requires the Participants to provide to the Commission an annual report 
assessing the Plan's performance, quarterly reports providing basic 
statistics, and ad hoc reports that may be requested by the Commission 
following significant market events.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 85623 (April 11, 
2019), 84 FR 16086 (April 17, 2019) (File No. 4-631).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section II.B of Appendix B (``Appendix B.II.B'') concerns the 
quarterly reports to be provided to the Commission. Appendix B.II.B 
currently provides that 30 days following the end of each calendar 
quarter, the Operating Committee shall provide the Commission and make 
publicly available a report including basic statistics regarding the 
Plan's operation (``Monitoring Report'') during the preceding calendar 
quarter as well as aggregated data from the previous 12 quarters 
beginning with the calendar quarter covered by the first Monitoring 
Report. Appendix B.II.B requires the Monitoring Report to include data 
on the number and rate of recurrence of Limit States, Straddle States, 
and Trading Pauses for each month during the calendar quarter, as well 
as the performance of reopening procedures following a Trading Pause. 
Appendix B.II.B also currently provides that the Monitoring Report will 
include data on the number of Clearly Erroneous Executions that occur 
during the preceding calendar quarter. In addition, Appendix B.II.B 
currently states that the data in the Monitoring Report should be 
partitioned by ``category'' (i.e., type of issue and price range), as 
well as by the ``time of day'' of the event. \10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ In several places in the Notice describing the Monitoring 
Report requirements, the Participants state that they ``should'' do 
certain things or provide certain data. The Commission notes that 
LULD Plan requires the Participants to meet such obligations and 
they are not voluntary on the part of the Participants. Therefore, 
in instances where the Notice states that the Participants 
``should'' include something in the Monitoring Report, the 
Commission notes that the LULD Plan requires that the data be 
provided.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Participants now propose to amend Appendix B.II.B in order to 
improve the clarity and transparency of the quarterly reporting 
requirements. The Participants also propose to make a non-substantive 
amendment to the Plan to reflect the name change of Chicago Stock 
Exchange, Inc., to NYSE Chicago, Inc.
1. Proposal To Improve Clarity and Transparency of Appendix B.II.B
    The Participants propose to amend Appendix B.II.B to improve its 
clarity and transparency by revising and supplementing the current 
language. In preparing to compile and aggregate the data required for 
the first quarterly report, the Participants determined that the 
language of Appendix B.II.B could be improved by, among other things: 
(a) Emphasizing from the outset that the data should be aggregated 
across primary listing exchanges, (b) specifying the specific 
partitions that should be applied to each data point, (c) specifying 
the specific distribution statistics that should be applied to each 
data point, and (d) providing additional clarity as to what Reopening 
data should be included.
    The Participants emphasize that the intention of this amendment is 
not to substantively change the requirements in Appendix B.II.B, but to 
amend the language of Appendix B.II.B to give more complete directions 
as to the information that should be included in the quarterly 
Monitoring Reports.
a. Data Aggregated Across Primary Listing Exchanges
    The opening paragraph of Appendix B.II.B currently refers to 
``aggregate data,'' but is not clear that the data for the quarterly 
Monitoring Report should be aggregated across primary listing 
exchanges, as opposed to aggregated in some other fashion. The 
Participants propose to amend this paragraph to make clear that the 
quarterly Monitoring Report will include basic statistics aggregated 
across primary listing exchanges regarding the Plan's operation during 
the preceding calendar quarter, as well as data aggregated across 
exchanges from the previous 12 quarters beginning with the calendar 
covered by the first Monitoring Report.
b. Specific Partitions To Apply to Each Data Category
    Appendix B.II.B currently contains provisions entitled ``Partition 
stocks by category'' and ``Partition by time of day.'' The Participants 
propose to replace this text to specify more clearly (i) which 
partitions apply to the data for Limit States, Trading Pauses, Straddle 
States, and Clearly Erroneous Events, and which partitions apply to the 
data for Reopenings, which differ; (ii) the 18 different category 
partitions that apply to the data for Limit States, Trading Pauses, 
Straddle States, and Clearly Erroneous Events; (iii) the specific time-
frames covered by each time-of-day partition; and (iv) that the data 
provided for Reopenings must take into account the differences between 
manual and automated reopenings.
    First, in preparing to compile the data required for the first 
quarterly report, the Participants determined that the partitions 
listed in the current Appendix B.II.B reasonably apply to the data for 
Limit States, Trading Pauses, Straddle States, and Clearly Erroneous 
Events, and that the Reopenings data requires different partitions. The 
Participants therefore propose to restructure Appendix B.II.B into two 
subsections, each with their own ``Definitions'' section that specifies 
the partitions that would be applicable to that subsection. 
Specifically, proposed Appendix B.II.B.1.a would define the partitions 
that would apply to data about Limit States, Trading Pauses, Straddle 
States, and Clearly Erroneous Events, and proposed Appendix B.II.B.2.a 
would define the partitions that would apply to data about Reopenings.
    Second, the current version of Appendix B.II.B. lists only eight 
separate ``categories'' into which securities should be partitioned, 
but the full language of that provision indicates that 18 categories 
are actually intended. Appendix B.II.B currently lists the first three 
categories as ``Tier 1 non-ETP issues > $3.00,'' ``Tier 1 non-ETP >= 
$0.75 and <= $3.00,'' and ``Tier 1 non-ETP issues < $0.75,'' and then 
lists five other categories of securities that should also be divided 
``in each of the above categories.'' The Participants understand this 
language to mean that each of the six categories of securities listed--
that is, Tier 1 non-ETPs, Tier 1 non-leveraged ETPs, Tier 1 leveraged 
ETPs, Tier 2 non-ETPs, Tier 2 non-leveraged ETPs, and Tier 2 leveraged 
ETPs--should each be further subdivided into three subcategories: 
Greater than $3.00, between $0.75 and $3.00, and less than $0.75. As 
such, the Participants propose to clearly list in the amended Appendix 
B.II.B.1.a.i all 18 of the categories of securities into which the 
Limit State, Trading Pause, Straddle State, and Clearly Erroneous 
Events data should be partitioned:

(1) Tier 1 non-ETP securities > $3.00
(2) Tier 1 non-ETP securities >= $0.75 and <= $3.00
(3) Tier 1 non-ETP securities < $0.75
(4) Tier 1 non-leveraged ETPs > $3.00
(5) Tier 1 non-leveraged ETPs >= $0.75 and <= $3.00

[[Page 16410]]

(6) Tier 1 non-leveraged ETPs < $0.75
(7) Tier 1 leveraged ETPs > $3.00
(8) Tier 1 leveraged ETPs >= $0.75 and <= $3.00
(9) Tier 1 leveraged ETPs < $0.75
(10) Tier 2 non-ETPs > $3.00
(11) Tier 2 non-ETPs >= $0.75 and <= $3.00
(12) Tier 2 non-ETPs < $0.75
(13) Tier 2 non-leveraged ETPs > $3.00
(14) Tier 2 non-leveraged ETPs >= $0.75 and <= $3.00
(15) Tier 2 non-leveraged ETPs < $0.75
(16) Tier 2 leveraged ETPs > $3.00
(17) Tier 2 leveraged ETPs >= $0.75 and <= $3.00
(18) Tier 2 leveraged ETPs < $0.75

    Third, the current Appendix B.II.B.3 states that the ``time of 
day'' partitions are ``Opening (prior to 9:45 a.m. ET),'' ``Regular 
(between 9:45 a.m. ET and 3:35 p.m. ET),'' ``Closing (after 3:35 p.m. 
ET),'' and ``Within five minutes of a Trading Pause re-open or IPO 
open.'' These partitions, however, assume that all trading days are 
full trading days, and do not account for partial trading days where 
the markets are scheduled to close early, such as the day after 
Thanksgiving and December 24. The Participants accordingly propose to 
amend Appendix B.II.B to add new subsection 1.a.ii, to specify that 
``Time of Day'' means the following time spans:

(1) Opening (prior to 9:45 a.m. ET)
(2) Regular (between 9:45 a.m. ET and 25 minutes prior to the end of 
core trading hours)
(3) Closing (the last 25 minutes of core trading hours)
(4) Within five minutes of a Trading Pause reopen or IPO open

    Fourth, the current Appendix B.II.B does not include any language 
partitioning Reopenings data between manual and automated 
reopenings.\11\ The Participants accordingly propose to amend Appendix 
B.II.B to add new subsection 2.a.i requiring that they partition 
Reopening data by whether the reopening is manual or automated. The 
Participants also propose to add new subsection 2.a.iii, to require 
that the data for Reopenings be partitioned by the ``Length of the 
Trading Pause,'' which would be defined as:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ For purposes of Appendix B, a reopening is considered 
``manual'' if it is facilitated by a member of an exchange (such as 
a Designated Market Maker on NYSE) that has obligations under that 
exchange's rules to facilitate the reopening process. (All 
reopenings on NYSE are manual.)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     Less than 6 minutes (for manual reopenings) or no 
extensions of the Trading Pause (for automated reopenings);
     6 to 10 minutes (for manual reopenings) or one extension 
of the Trading Pause (for automated reopenings);
     more than 10 minutes (for manual reopenings) or more than 
one extension of the Trading Pause (for automated reopenings).
c. Specific Distribution Statistics To Apply to Each Data Category for 
Limit States, Trading Pauses, Straddle States, and Clearly Erroneous 
Events
    The current Appendix II.B.II states in general terms that the 
Monitoring Report should include data on the ``[n]umber of Limit 
States, Trading Pauses, and Straddle States per day, including 
distribution statistics such as the mean, median, minimum and maximum 
percentiles,'' and the ``[n]umber of NMS Stocks that experience more 
than one Limit State, Trading Pause, or Straddle State in a single day 
including the length of each Limit State, Trading Pause, and Straddle 
State per day.'' The current version also states generally that 
Participants should ``[P]artition stocks by category'' and 
``[P]artition by time of day,'' even though such partitions do not 
reasonably apply to every data set required to be supplied in the 
Monitoring Report.
    The Participants propose to add clarity to these reporting 
requirements by amending Appendix B.II.B to specify the precise 
distribution statistics and partitions to apply to each data request. 
Accordingly, the Participants propose to amend Appendix B.II.B.1.b 
clarify that the Monitoring Report would include:
For Limit States
     Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 25th 
percentile, and maximum) on the number of Limit States per day, broken 
out by Category and Time of Day.
     Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 25th 
percentile, and maximum) on the number of NMS Stocks that experienced 
more than one Limit State on a single day, broken out by Category.
     Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th 
percentile, and 99th percentile) on the number of Limit States 
experienced per day by individual NMS Stocks that had more than one 
Limit State on a single day, broken out by Category.
     Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th 
percentile, and 99th percentile) on the total length of Limit States 
experienced per day by individual NMS Stocks that had more than one 
Limit State on a single day, broken out by Category.
For Trading Pauses
     Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 25th 
percentile, and maximum) on the number of Trading Pauses per day, 
broken out by Category and Time of Day.
     Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 25th 
percentile, and maximum) on the number of NMS Stocks that experienced 
more than one Trading Pause on a single day, broken out by Category.
     Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th 
percentile, and maximum) on the number of Trading Pauses per day 
experienced by individual NMS Stocks having more than one Trading Pause 
on a single day, broken out by Category.
For Straddle States
     Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 25th 
percentile, and maximum) on the number of Straddle States per day, 
broken out by Category and Time of Day.
     Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 25th 
percentile, and maximum) on the number of NMS Stocks that experienced 
more than one Straddle State on a single day, broken out by Category.
     Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th 
percentile, and 99.9th percentile) on the total time spent in a 
Straddle State per day for individual NMS Stocks experiencing one or 
more Straddle States on a single day, broken out by Category
For Clearly Erroneous Events
     The number of Clearly Erroneous Events per day for all NMS 
Stocks that occurred during the time when Price Bands re disseminated 
by the Processor, broken out by Category and Time of Day.
d. Additional Clarity on Reopening Data
    Finally, regarding Reopening data, Appendix B.II.B currently states 
that the Monitoring Report should include the ``[n]umber of times an 
automated reopening process is extended for and the length of the 
Trading Pause,'' ``[w]hether the reopening process ended in a trade,'' 
``[t]he price calculated by an automated reopening process for an NMS 
Stock existing a Trading Pause,'' and ``[f]or the five minutes 
following the conclusion of a Trading Pause, the highest price of all 
last sale eligible trades, the lowest price of all last sale eligible 
trades, and the average price of all last sale eligible trades.''
    These provisions, however, do not specify the specific distribution 
statistics or partitions that the Participants should apply to any of

[[Page 16411]]

these data requests. Additionally, the Participants believe that the 
quality and utility of the Monitoring Report will be enhanced if they 
supply additional information about Reopening statistics, including how 
the Trading Pause ended (whether in a trade, a quote, or a potential 
closing auction), whether the Trading Pause was preceded by a Limit Up 
state versus a Limit Down state, and the percentage price change 
between the price that triggered the Trading Pause and the reopening 
price on exiting the Trading Pause.
    Accordingly, the Participants propose to amend the provisions in 
Appendix B.II.B pertaining to Reopenings to specify that the Monitoring 
Report should include:
     The number of Trading Pauses per month, broken out by (a) 
Type of Reopening, (b) Category, and (c) Length of the Trading Pause.
     Monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th 
percentile, and 99th percentile) on the duration of each Trading Pause, 
broken out by (a) Type of Reopening and (b) Category.
     The number of Trading Pauses ending in a (a) trade; (b) 
quote; and (c) potential closing auction, broken out by (i) Type of 
Reopening, (ii) Category, and (iii) Length of Trading Pause.
     For Trading Pauses in NMS Stocks preceded by a Limit Up 
state, monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th percentile, 
and 99th percentile) on the percentage price change from the Limit Up 
pricing that triggered the Trading Pause to the reopening price on 
exiting the Trading Pause (i.e., the reopening trade or midpoint 
price), broken out by (a) Category and (b) whether the Trading Pause 
ended in a trade or (c) in a quote (i.e., the reopening price was a 
midpoint).
     For Trading Pauses in NMS Stocks preceded by a Limit Down 
state, monthly distribution statistics (mean, median, 90th percentile, 
and 99th percentile) on the percentage price change from the Limit Down 
pricing that triggered the Trading Pause to the reopening price on 
exiting the Trading Pause (i.e., the reopening trade or midpoint 
price), broken out by (a) Category and (b) whether the Trading Pause 
ended in a trade or (c) in a quote (i.e., the reopening price was a 
midpoint).
     For Trading Pauses in NMS Stocks where the reopening 
process ended in a trade or quote (with resulting reference price equal 
to the midpoint of that quote), monthly distribution statistics (mean, 
median, 90th percentile, and 99th percentile) on the percentage price 
change from the reopening price on exiting the Trading Pause (i.e., the 
reopening trade or midpoint price) to (a) the highest price of all last 
sale eligible trades, (b) the lowest price of all last sale eligible 
trades; and (c) the trade-weighted average price of all last sale 
eligible trades for the five minutes following the conclusion of the 
Trading Pause, broken out by (i) Category, (ii) whether the Trading 
Pause was preceded by a Limit Up state or (iii) a Limit Down state, and 
(iv) whether the Trading Pause ended in a trade or (v) in a quote 
(i.e., the reopening price was a midpoint).
    The Participants believe that the proposed amendments described 
above will enhance clarity, improve transparency, and provide direction 
to the Participants in compiling and aggregating the data required in 
the quarterly Monitoring Reports.
2. Proposal To Change Name of Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc. to NYSE 
Chicago, Inc.
    The Participants also propose to make a non-substantive amendment 
to the Plan to reflect the name change of Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc. 
to NYSE Chicago, Inc., and the change of its address from 440 South 
LaSalle Street, Chicago, Illinois 60605 to 11 Wall Street, New York, 
New York, 10005.
    On October 18, 2018, the Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc. filed a 
proposed rule change for immediate effectiveness to amend, among other 
things, its rules to reflect the change of its name to NYSE Chicago, 
Inc.\12\

2018), 83 FR 54953 (November 1, 2018) (SR-CHX-2018-05).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. Governing or Constituent Documents

    The governing documents of the Processor, as defined in Section 
I(P) of the Plan, will not be affected by this proposed amendment to 
the Plan.

C. Implementation of Amendment

    The Participants are filing this proposed amendment pursuant to 
Rule 608(b)(1) of Regulation NMS under the Exchange Act.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ 17 CFR 242.608.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

D. Development and Implementation Phases

    The Plan has been fully implemented, and the amendments proposed 
herein are immediately effective, as noted above.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ The Commission notes that the Exchanges incorrectly stated 
in the Transmittal Letter, supra note 4, that the proposed 
amendments are effective upon filing. These amendments are being 
proposed pursuant to Rule 608(b)(1) of Regulation NMS under the 
Exchange Act, and the Commission is publishing the proposed 
amendments for public comment as required by Rule 608(b)(1). The 
Commission may approve these proposed amendments if it finds that 
they are consistent with the standards articulated in Rule 608(b)(2) 
of Regulation NMS.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

E. Analysis of Impact on Competition

    The Participants believe that the proposed amendment does not 
impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate 
in furtherance of the purposes of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 
(``Exchange Act''). The proposed amendments to Appendix B.II.B of the 
Plan pertain to the obligations of the Participants and the Operating 
Committee to provide periodic reports to the Commission about the 
Plan's ongoing operation. As such, they do not apply directly to any 
market participants and would not impose a competitive burden on one 
category of market participant in favor of another category of market 
participant. For the same reasons, the Participants do not believe that 
the proposed Plan introduces terms that are unreasonably discriminatory 
for the purposes of Section 11A(c)(1)(D) of the Exchange Act.

F. Written Understanding or Agreements Relating to Interpretation of, 
or Participation in, Plan

    The Participants have no written understandings or agreements 
relating to interpretation of the Plan.

G. Approval of Amendment of the Plan

    Each of the Participants has approved the amendment in accordance 
with Section III(C) of the Plan. Specifically, on February 12, 2020, 
the Operating Committee, duly constituted and chaired by Mr. Robert 
Books of Cboe Global Markets, Inc., voted unanimously to amend the Plan 
as set forth herein. The Participants also received and incorporated 
feedback from the Plan Advisory Committee in preparing this proposal.

H. Terms and Conditions of Access

    Section II(C) of the Plan provides that any entity registered as a 
national securities exchange or national securities association under 
the Exchange Act may become a Participant by: (1) Becoming a 
participant in the applicable Market Data Plans, as defined in Section 
I(F) of the Plan; (2) executing a copy of the Plan, as then in effect; 
(3) providing each then-current Participant with a copy of such 
executed Plan; and (4) effecting an amendment to the Plan as specified 
in Section III(B) of the Plan.

[[Page 16412]]

I. Method of Determination and Imposition, and Amount of, Fees and 
Charges

    This section is not applicable as the proposed amendment to the 
Plan does not involve fees or charges.

J. Method and Frequency of Processor Evaluation

    This section is not applicable as the operation of the Plan is 
conducted by the Primary Listing Exchange.

K. Dispute Resolution

    Section III(C) of the Plan provides that each Participant shall 
designate an individual to represent the Participant as a member of an 
Operating Committee. No later than the initial date of the Plan, the 
Operating Committee shall designate one member of the Operating 
Committee to act as the Chair of the Operating Committee. Any 
recommendation for an amendment to the Plan from the Operating 
Committee that receives an affirmative vote of at least two-thirds of 
the Participants, but is less than unanimous, shall be submitted to the 
Commission as a request for an amendment to the Plan initiated by the 
Commission under Rule 608.

III. Solicitation of Comments

Preamble

    The Participants submit to the SEC this Plan establishing 
procedures to address extraordinary volatility in NMS Stocks. The 
procedures provide for market-wide limit up-limit down requirements 
that prevent trades in individual NMS Stocks from occurring outside of 
the specified Price Bands. These limit up-limit down requirements are 
coupled with Trading Pauses to accommodate more fundamental price 
moves. The Plan procedures are designed, among other things, to protect 
investors and promote fair and orderly markets. The Participants 
developed this Plan pursuant to Rule 608(a)(3) of Regulation NMS under 
the Exchange Act, which authorizes the Participants to act jointly in 
preparing, filing, and implementing national market system plans.

effective under Rule 608 of Regulation NMS under the Exchange Act.

(B) New Participants

    With respect to new Participants, an amendment to the Plan may be 
effected by the new national securities exchange or national securities

[[Page 16414]]

pursuant to Rule 608 of Regulation NMS under the Exchange Act.

(C) Operating Committee

    (1) Each Participant shall select from its staff one individual to 
represent the Participant as a member of an Operating Committee, 
together with a substitute for such individual. The substitute may 
participate in deliberations of the Operating Committee and shall be 
considered a voting member thereof only in the absence of the primary

considered by the Operating Committee. No later than the initial date 
of Plan operations, the Operating Committee shall designate one member 
of the Operating Committee to act as the Chair of the Operating 
Committee.
    (2) The Operating Committee shall monitor the procedures 
established pursuant to this Plan and advise the Participants with 
respect to any deficiencies, problems, or recommendations as the 
Operating Committee may deem appropriate. The Operating Committee shall 
establish specifications and procedures for the implementation and 
operation of the Plan that are consistent with the provisions of this 
Plan and the Appendixes thereto. With respect to matters in this 
paragraph, Operating Committee decisions shall be approved by a simple 
majority vote.
    (3) Any recommendation for an amendment to the Plan from the 
Operating Committee that receives an affirmative vote of at least two-
thirds of the Participants, but is less than unanimous, shall be

initiated by the Commission under Rule 608 of Regulation NMS.

IV. Trading Center Policies and Procedures

    All trading centers in NMS Stocks, including both those operated by 
Participants and those operated by members of Participants, shall 
establish, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures that 
are reasonably designed to comply with the limit up--limit down 
requirements specified in Sections VI of the Plan, and to comply with 
the Trading Pauses specified in Section VII of the Plan.

V. Price Bands

(A) Calculation and Dissemination of Price Bands

    (1) The Processor for each NMS stock shall calculate and 
disseminate to the public a Lower Price Band and an Upper Price Band 
during Regular Trading Hours for such NMS Stock. The Price Bands shall 
be based on a Reference Price for each NMS Stock that equals the 
arithmetic mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS 
stock over the immediately preceding five-minute period (except for 
periods following openings and reopenings, which are addressed below). 
If no Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS Stock have occurred 
over the immediately preceding five-minute period, the previous 
Reference Price shall remain in effect. The Price Bands for an NMS 
Stock shall be calculated by applying the Percentage Parameter for such 
NMS Stock to the Reference Price, with the Lower Price Band being a 
Percentage Parameter below the Reference Price, and the Upper Price 
Band being a Percentage Parameter above the Reference Price. The Price 
Bands shall be calculated during Regular Trading Hours. Between 3:35 
p.m. and 4:00 p.m. ET, or in the case of an early scheduled close, 
during the last 25 minutes of trading before the early scheduled close, 
the Price Bands shall be calculated by applying double the Percentage 
Parameters set forth in Appendix A for (i) all Tier 1 NMS Stocks and 
(ii) Tier 2 NMS Stocks priced equal to or below $3.00. If the Processor 
has not yet disseminated Price Bands, but a Reference Price is 
available, a trading center may calculate and apply Price Bands based 
on the same Reference Price that the Processor would use for 
calculating such Price Bands until such trading center receives Price 
Bands from the Processor. If, under Section VII(B)(2), the Primary 
Listing Exchange notifies the Processor that it is unable to reopen an 
NMS Stock due to a systems or technology issue and it has not declared 
a Regulatory Halt, the Processor will calculate and disseminate Price 
Bands by applying triple the Percentage Parameters set forth in 
Appendix A for the first 30 seconds such Price Bands are disseminated.
    (2) The Processor shall calculate a Pro-Forma Reference Price on a 
continuous basis during Regular Trading Hours, as specified in Section 
V(A)(1) of the Plan. If a Pro-Forma Reference Price has not moved by 1% 
or more from the Reference Price currently in effect, no new Price 
Bands shall be disseminated, and the current Reference Price shall 
remain the effective Reference Price. When the Pro-Forma Reference 
Price has moved by 1% or more from the Reference Price currently in 
effect, the Pro-Forma Reference Price shall become the Reference Price, 
and the Processor shall disseminate new Price Bands based on the new 
Reference Price; provided, however, that each new Reference Price shall 
remain in effect for at least 30 seconds.

(B) Openings

    (1) Except when a Regulatory Halt is in effect at the start of 
Regular Trading Hours, the first Reference Price for a trading day 
shall be the Opening Price on the Primary Listing Exchange in an NMS 
Stock if such Opening Price occurs less than five minutes after the 
start of Regular Trading Hours. During the period less than five 
minutes after the Opening Price, a Pro-Forma Reference Price shall be 
updated on a continuous basis to be the arithmetic mean price of 
Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS Stock during the period 
following the Opening Price (including the Opening Price), and if it 
differs from the current Reference Price by 1% or more shall become the 
new Reference Price, except that a new Reference Price shall remain in 
effect for at least 30 seconds. Subsequent Reference Prices shall be 
calculated as specified in Section V(A) of the Plan.
    (2) If the Opening Price on the Primary Listing Exchange in an NMS 
Stock does not occur within five minutes after the start of Regular 
Trading Hours, the first Reference Price for a trading day shall be the 
arithmetic mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS 
Stock over the preceding five minute time period, and subsequent 
Reference Prices shall be calculated as specified in Section V(A) of 
the Plan.

(C) Reopenings

    (1) Following a Trading Pause in an NMS Stock, and if the Primary 
Listing Exchange has not declared a Regulatory Halt, if the Primary 
Listing Exchange reopens trading with a transaction or quotation that 
does not include a zero bid or zero offer, the next Reference Price 
shall be the Reopening Price on the Primary Listing Exchange. 
Subsequent Reference Prices shall be determined in the manner 
prescribed for normal openings, as specified in Section V(B)(1) of the 
Plan. If the Primary Listing Exchange notifies the Processor that it is 
unable to reopen an NMS Stock due to a systems or technology issue, or 
if the Primary Listing Exchange reopens trading with a quotation that 
has a zero bid or zero offer, or both, the next Reference Price shall 
be the last effective Price Band that was in a Limit State before the 
Trading Pause. Subsequent Reference Prices shall be calculated as 
specified in Section V(A) of the Plan.

[[Page 16415]]

    (2) Following a Regulatory Halt, the next Reference Price shall be 
the Opening or Reopening Price on the Primary Listing Exchange if such 
Opening or Reopening Price occurs within five minutes after the end of 
the Regulatory Halt, and subsequent Reference Prices shall be 
determined in the manner prescribed for normal openings, as specified 
in Section V(B)(1) of the Plan. If such Opening or Reopening Price has 
not occurred within five minutes after the end of the Regulatory Halt, 
the Reference Price shall be equal to the arithmetic mean price of 
Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS Stock over the preceding 
five minute time period, and subsequent Reference Prices shall be 
calculated as specified in Section V(A) of the Plan.

VI. Limit Up-Limit Down Requirements

(A) Limitations on Trades and Quotations Outside of Price Bands

    (1) All trading centers in NMS Stocks, including both those 
operated by Participants and those operated by members of Participants, 
shall establish, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures 
that are reasonably designed to prevent trades at prices that are below 
the Lower Price Band or above the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock. 
Single-priced opening, reopening, and closing transactions on the 
Primary Listing Exchange, however, shall be excluded from this 
limitation. In addition, any transaction that both (i) does not update 
the last sale price (except if solely because the transaction was 
reported late or because the transaction was an odd-lot sized 
transaction), and (ii) is excepted or exempt from Rule 611 under 
Regulation NMS shall be excluded from this limitation.
    (2) When a National Best Bid is below the Lower Price Band or a 
National Best Offer is above the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock, the 
Processor shall disseminate such National Best Bid or National Best 
Offer with an appropriate flag identifying it as non-executable. When a 
National Best Offer is equal to the Lower Price Band or a National Best 
Bid is equal to the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock, the Processor 
shall distribute such National Best Bid or National Best Offer with an 
appropriate flag identifying it as a ``Limit State Quotation''.
    (3) All trading centers in NMS Stocks, including both those 
operated by Participants and those operated by members of Participants, 
shall establish, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures 
that are reasonably designed to prevent the display of offers below the 
Lower Price Band and bids above the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock. 
The Processor shall disseminate an offer below the Lower Price Band or 
bid above the Upper Price Band that may be submitted despite such 
reasonable policies and procedures, but with an appropriate flag 
identifying it as non-executable; provided, however, that any such bid 
or offer shall not be included in National Best Bid or National Best 
Offer calculations.

(B) Entering and Exiting a Limit State

    (1) All trading for an NMS Stock shall immediately enter a Limit 
State if the National Best Offer equals the Lower Price Band and does 
not cross the National Best Bid, or the National Best Bid equals the 
Upper Price Band and does not cross the National Best Offer.
    (2) When trading for an NMS Stock enters a Limit State, the 
Processor shall disseminate this information by identifying the 
relevant quotation (i.e., a National Best Offer that equals the Lower 
Price Band or a National Best Bid that equals the Upper Price Band) as 
a Limit State Quotation. At this point, the Processor shall cease 
calculating and disseminating updated Reference Prices and Price Bands 
for the NMS Stock until either trading exits the Limit State or trading 
resumes with an opening or re-opening as provided in Section V.
    (3) Trading for an NMS Stock shall exit a Limit State if, within 15 
seconds of entering the Limit State, the entire size of all Limit State 
Quotations are executed or cancelled.
    (4) If trading for an NMS Stock exits a Limit State within 15 
seconds of entry, the Processor shall immediately calculate and 
disseminate updated Price Bands based on a Reference Price that equals 
the arithmetic mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS 
Stock over the immediately preceding five-minute period (including the 
period of the Limit State).
    (5) If trading for an NMS Stock does not exit a Limit State within 
15 seconds of entry, the Limit State will terminate when the Primary 
Listing Exchange declares a Trading Pause pursuant to Section VII of 
the Plan or at the end of Regular Trading Hours.

VII. Trading Pauses

(A) Declaration of Trading Pauses

    (1) If trading for an NMS Stock does not exit a Limit State within 
15 seconds of entry during Regular Trading Hours, then the Primary 
Listing Exchange shall declare a Trading Pause for such NMS Stock and 
shall notify the Processor.
    (2) The Primary Listing Exchange may also declare a Trading Pause 
for an NMS Stock when an NMS Stock is in a Straddle State, which is 
when National Best Bid (Offer) is below (above) the Lower (Upper) Price 
Band and the NMS Stock is not in a Limit State, and trading in that NMS 
Stock deviates from normal trading characteristics such that declaring 
a Trading Pause would support the Plan's goal to address extraordinary 
market volatility. The Primary Listing Exchange shall develop policies 
and procedures for determining when it would declare a Trading Pause in 
such circumstances. If a Trading Pause is declared for an NMS Stock 
under this provision, the Primary Listing Exchange shall notify the 
Processor.
    (3) The Processor shall disseminate Trading Pause information to 
the public. No trades in an NMS Stock shall occur during a Trading 
Pause, but all bids and offers may be displayed.

(B) Reopening of Trading During Regular Trading Hours

    (1) Five minutes after declaring a Trading Pause for an NMS Stock, 
and if the Primary Listing Exchange has not declared a Regulatory Halt, 
the Primary Listing Exchange shall attempt to reopen trading using its 
established reopening procedures. The Processor will publish the 
following information that the Primary Listing Exchange provides to the 
Processor in connection with such reopening: Auction reference price; 
auction collars; and number of extensions to the reopening auction. The 
Trading Pause shall end when the Primary Listing Exchange reports a 
Reopening Price.
    (2) The Primary Listing Exchange shall notify the Processor if it 
is unable to reopen trading in an NMS Stock due to a systems or 
technology issue and if it has not declared a Regulatory Halt. The 
Processor shall disseminate this information to the public.
    (3) Trading centers may not resume trading in an NMS Stock 
following a Trading Pause without Price Bands in such NMS Stock.
    (4) The Processor shall update the Price Bands as set forth in 
Section V(C)(1)-(2) of the Plan after receiving notification from the 
Primary Listing Exchange of a Reopening Price following a Trading Pause 
(or a resume message in the case of a reopening quote that has a zero 
bid or zero offer, or both) or that it is unable to reopen trading 
following a Trading Pause due to a systems or technology issue, 
provided that if the Primary Listing Exchange is unable to reopen due 
to a systems or technology issue, the update to the Price Bands will be 
no earlier than ten

[[Page 16416]]

minutes after the beginning of the Trading Pause.

(C) Trading Pauses Within Ten Minutes of the End of Regular Trading 
Hours

    (1) If an NMS Stock is in a Trading Pause during the last ten 
minutes of trading before the end of Regular Trading Hours, the Primary 
Listing Exchange shall not reopen trading and shall attempt to execute 
a closing transaction using its established closing procedures. All 
trading centers may begin trading the NMS Stock when the Primary 
Listing Exchange executes a closing transaction.
    (2) If the Primary Listing Exchange does not execute a closing 
transaction within five minutes after the end of Regular Trading Hours, 
all trading centers may begin trading the NMS Stock.

VIII. Implementation

    The initial date of Plan operations shall be April 8, 2013.

IX. Withdrawal From Plan

    If a Participant obtains SEC approval to withdraw from the Plan, 
such Participant may withdraw from the Plan at any time on not less 
than 30 days' prior written notice to each of the other Participants. 
At such time, the withdrawing Participant shall have no further rights 
or obligations under the Plan.

X. Counterparts and Signatures

    The Plan may be executed in any number of counterparts, no one of 
which need contain all signatures of all Participants, and as many of 
such counterparts as shall together contain all such signatures shall 
constitute one and the same instrument.
    IN WITNESS THEREOF, this Plan has been executed as of the __day of 
November 2019 [2018] by each of the parties hereto.

Appendix A--Percentage Parameters

I. Tier 1 NMS Stocks

    (1) Tier 1 NMS Stocks shall include all NMS Stocks included in 
the S&P 500 Index[,] and the Russell 1000 Index, and the exchange-
traded products (``ETP'') identified as Schedule 1 to this Appendix. 
Schedule 1 to the Appendix will be reviewed and updated semi-
annually based on the fiscal year by the Primary Listing Exchange to 
add ETPs that meet the criteria, or delete ETPs that are no longer 
eligible. To determine eligibility for an ETP to be included as a 
Tier 1 NMS Stock, all ETPs across multiple asset classes and 
issuers, including domestic equity, international equity, fixed 
income, currency, and commodities and futures will be identified. 
Leveraged ETPs will be excluded and the list will be sorted by 
notional consolidated average daily volume (``CADV''). The period 
used to measure CADV will be from the first day of the previous 
fiscal half year up until one week before the beginning of the next 
fiscal half year. Daily volumes will be multiplied by closing prices 
and then averaged over the period. ETPs, including inverse ETPs, 
that trade over $2,000,000 CADV will be eligible to be included as a 
Tier 1 NMS Stock. The semi-annual updates to Schedule 1 do not 
require an amendment to the Plan. The Primary Listing Exchanges will 
maintain the updated Schedule 1 on their respective websites.
    (2) The Percentage Parameters for Tier 1 NMS Stocks with a 
Reference Price more than $3.00 shall be 5%.
    (3) The Percentage Parameters for Tier 1 NMS Stocks with a 
Reference Price equal to $0.75 and up to and including $3.00 shall 
be 20%.
    (4) The Percentage Parameters for Tier 1 NMS Stocks with a 
Reference Price less than $0.75 shall be the lesser of (a) $0.15 or 
(b) 75%.
    (5) The Reference Price used for determining which Percentage 
Parameter shall be applicable during a trading day shall be based on 
the closing price of the NMS Stock on the Primary Listing Exchange 
on the previous trading day, or if no closing price exists, the last 
sale on the Primary Listing Exchange reported by the Processor.

II. Tier 2 NMS Stocks

    (1) Tier 2 NMS Stocks shall include all NMS Stocks other than 
those in Tier 1, provided, however, that all rights and warrants are 
excluded from the Plan.
    (2) The Percentage Parameters for Tier 2 NMS Stocks with a 
Reference Price more than $3.00 shall be 10%.
    (3) The Percentage Parameters for Tier 2 NMS Stocks with a 
Reference Price equal to $0.75 and up to and including $3.00 shall 
be 20%.
    (4) The Percentage Parameters for Tier 2 NMS Stocks with a 
Reference Price less than $0.75 shall be the lesser of (a) $0.15 or 
(b) 75%.
    (5) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Percentage Parameters for 
a Tier 2 NMS Stock that is a leveraged ETP shall be the applicable 
Percentage Parameter set forth in clauses (2), (3), or (4) above, 
multiplied by the leverage ratio of such product.
    (6) The Reference Price used for determining which Percentage 
Parameter shall be applicable during a trading day shall be based on 
the closing price of the NMS Stock on the Primary Listing Exchange 
on the previous trading day, or if no closing price exists, the last 
sale on the Primary Listing Exchange reported by the Processor.
