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 March 22, 2021, Nasdaq BX, Inc. (‘‘BX’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘SEC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) the 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 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 BX Options 7, Section 1, ‘‘General Provisions,’’ and Options 7, Section 2, ‘‘BX Options Market-Fees and Rebates.’’ The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s website at https://listingcenter.nasdaq.com/ rulebook/bx/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 Section 1, ‘‘General Provisions,’’ and Options 7, Section 2, ‘‘BX Options Market-Fees and Rebates.’’ The Exchange proposes to remove the current fees, rebates and tier schedules applicable to Penny Symbols and NonPenny Symbols. Today, the Penny and Non-Penny fees and rebates are based on volume tiers and consider contraparties to a transaction. With this proposal, BX’s pricing will no longer be tiered and will not consider the contraparty, unless otherwise specified. Further, the proposed changes will replace the existing pricing schedule with a new maker/taker fee structure where market participants are assessed a rebate or lower fee for adding liquidity to the market, or charged a higher fee for removing liquidity from the market. This new pricing model is intended to reward Participants that bring order flow to the Exchange and thereby increase liquidity and trading opportunities for all market participants. BX believes that the proposed pricing model will encourage additional order flow to be sent to the Exchange, and contribute to a more active and quality market in BX-listed options to the benefit of all market participants that trade on the Exchange. The current pricing schedule for Penny and Non-Penny Symbols is as follows: 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to amend BX’s Pricing Schedule at Options 7, FEES AND REBATES [per executed contract] Customer Penny Symbols: Rebate to Add Liquidity ............................................................................... Fee to Add Liquidity ..................................................................................... Rebate to Remove Liquidity ........................................................................
