Download as PDF 19210 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 66 / Monday, April 6, 2020 / Notices B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition In accordance with Section 6(b)(8) of the Act,11 the Exchange believes that the proposed rule change will not impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. Intramarket Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed change would place any burden on intramarket competition that is not necessary or appropriate. The proposed extension of the waiver is not designed to affect competition, but rather to provide relief to Users that, while a Rules 7.1–E and 7.1–O closure is in effect, have no option but to use the Hot Hands service. The proposed extension of the waiver would not apply differently to distinct types or sizes of market participants. Rather, all Users whose equipment requires work during the extension of the Data Center closure would have the resulting fees waived, and the extension of the waiver would apply uniformly to all Users during the period. Intermarket Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed change would impose any burden on intermarket competition that is not necessary or appropriate. The Exchange believes that the proposed change would not affect the competitive landscape among the national securities exchanges, as the Hot Hands service is solely charged within co-location to existing Users, and would be temporary. For the reasons described above, the Exchange believes that the proposed rule change reflects this competitive environment. C.
