[Release No. 34–91107; File No. SR– NASDAQ–2021–006] Proposed Changes to Qualified Market Maker Rebates Self-Regulatory Organizations; The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC; Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of Proposed Rule Change To Amend the Exchange’s Transaction Credits at Equity 7, Sections 114 and 118(a) Presently, in Equity 7, Section 114, the Exchange offers several special pricing programs that are based, in part, upon members’ activities in securities priced at or more than $1 relative to total ‘‘Consolidated Volume.’’ 3 Among them is a program that provides rebates to Qualified Market Makers (‘‘QMMs’’).4 Pursuant to Equity 7, Section 114(e), a member that qualifies as a QMM is entitled to receive a rebate per share executed with respect to all displayed orders (other than Designated Retail Orders, as defined in Equity 7, Section 118) in securities priced at $1 or more per share that provide liquidity in each of Tapes A, B, and C. Such a rebate is in addition to any rebate payable under Equity 7, Section 118(a). Specifically, the Exchange offers several tiers of rebates to QMMs. Among them, it offers a Tier 1 rebate of $0.0001 per share executed to any QMM that executes shares of liquidity provided in all securities through one or more of its Nasdaq Market Center MPIDs that represent above 0.70% up to, and including, 0.90% of Consolidated Volume during the month. Additionally, the Exchange offers a Tier 2 rebate of $0.0002 per share executed to any QMM that executes shares of liquidity provided in all securities through one or more of its Nasdaq Market Center MPIDs that represent above 0.90% of Consolidated Volume during the month. For the month of December 2020 only, the Exchange amended the definition of ‘‘Consolidated Volume’’ in Equity 7, Section 114,5 to account for an unexpected rise in sub-dollar trading which stood to adversely impact February 11, 2021. Pursuant to 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 February 1, 2021, The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (‘‘Nasdaq’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘SEC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III, below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Commission is publishing this notice to 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 proposes to amend the Exchange’s transaction credits at Equity 7, Sections 114 and 118(a), as described further below. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s website at https://listingcenter.nasdaq.com/ rulebook/nasdaq/rules, at the principal office of the Exchange, 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 purpose of the proposed rule change is to amend the Exchange’s 1 15 2 17 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Feb 17, 2021 Jkt 253001 PO 00000 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3 Pursuant to Equity 7, Section 114(h), the term ‘‘Consolidated Volume’’ shares the meaning of that term set forth in Equity 7, Section 118(a). Equity 7, Section 118(a) defines ‘‘Consolidated Volume’’ to mean the total consolidated volume reported to all consolidated transaction reporting plans by all exchanges and trade reporting facilities during a month in equity securities, excluding executed orders with a size of less than one round lot. For purposes of calculating Consolidated Volume and the extent of a member’s trading activity the date of the annual reconstitution of the Russell Investments Indexes is excluded from both total Consolidated Volume and the member’s trading activity. 4 Pursuant to Equity 7, Section 114(d), a member may be designated as a QMM if: (1) The member is not assessed any ‘‘Excess Order Fee’’ under Equity 7, Section 118 during the month; and (2) the member quotes at the NBBO at least 25% of the time during regular market hours in an average of at least 1,000 securities per day during the month. 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 34– 90719 (December 18, 2020), 85 FR 84437 (December 28, 2020) (SR–NASDAQ–2020–87).
