VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:37 Apr 09, 2021 SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION [Release No. 34–91485; File No. SR–ISE– 2021–05] Self-Regulatory Organizations; Nasdaq ISE, LLC; Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of Proposed Rule Change To Extend the Pilot To Permit the Listing and Trading of Options Based on 1⁄5 the Value of the Nasdaq–100 Index April 6, 2021. Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on March 24, 2021, Nasdaq ISE, LLC (‘‘ISE’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘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 extend the pilot to permit the listing and trading of options based on 1⁄5 the value of the Nasdaq–100 Index (‘‘Nasdaq–100’’) currently set to expire on May 4, 2021. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s website at https://listingcenter.nasdaq.com/ rulebook/ise/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 2 17 Jkt 253001 A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose 1 15 9 17 forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. PO 00000 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. Frm 00117 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 ISE filed a proposed rule change to permit the listing and trading of index options on the Nasdaq 100 Reduced Value Index (‘‘NQX’’) on a twelve month pilot basis 3 (‘‘Program’’). NQX options trade independently of and in addition to NDX options, and the NQX options are subject to the same rules that presently govern the trading of index options based on the Nasdaq– 100, including sales practice rules, margin requirements, trading rules, and position and exercise limits. Similar to NDX, NQX options are European-style and cash-settled, and have a contract multiplier of 100. The contract specifications for NQX options mirror in all respects those of the NDX options contract listed on the Exchange, except that NQX options are based on 1⁄5 of the value of the Nasdaq–100, and are P.M.settled pursuant to Options 4A, Section 12(a)(6). The Exchange proposes to amend ISE Options 4A, Section 12(a)(6) to extend the current NQX pilot period to November 4, 2021. This pilot was previously extended with the last extension through May 4, 2021.4 The Exchange continues to have sufficient capacity to handle additional quotations and message traffic associated with the proposed listing and trading of NQX options. In addition, index options are integrated into the Exchange’s existing surveillance system architecture and are thus subject to the relevant surveillance processes. The Exchange also continues to have adequate surveillance procedures to monitor trading in NQX options thereby aiding in the maintenance of a fair and orderly market. Additionally, there is continued investor interest in these products and this extension will provide additional time to collect data related to the pilot. The Exchange believes that the proposed extension of the Program will not have an adverse impact on capacity. 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 82911 (March 20, 2018), 83 FR 12966 (March 26, 2018) (SR–ISE–2017–106) (Approval Order). 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release Nos.86071 (June 10, 2019), 84 FR 27822 (June 14, 2019) (SR– ISE–2019–18); 87379 (October 22, 2019), 84 FR 57793 (October 28, 2019) (SR–ISE–2019–27); 88683 (April 17, 2020), 85 FR 22768 (April 23, 2020) (SR– ISE–2020–18); and 90257 (October 22, 2020), 85 FR 68387 (October 28, 2020) (SR–ISE–2020–33).
