Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 50 / Tuesday, March 15, 2022 / Notices order to compete for the market data. For example, proposing fees that are excessively higher than fees for potentially similar data products would simply serve to reduce demand for the Exchange’s data product, which as discussed, market participants are under no obligation to utilize. In this competitive environment, potential purchasers are free to choose which, if any, similar product to purchase to satisfy their need for market information. As a result, the Exchange believes this proposed rule change permits fair competition among national securities exchanges. The Exchange also believes that the proposed fees do not cause any unnecessary or inappropriate burden on intermarket competition because the latency information that would be provided in the Complex Order Report would enhance competition between exchanges that offer complex order functionality. Members that subscribe to the Complex Order Report could use the information in the report to recalibrate their models and trading strategies to improve their overall trading experience on the Exchange. This may improve the Exchange’s overall trading environment resulting in increased liquidity and order flow on the Exchange. In response, other exchanges may similarly seek ways to provide latency related data in an effort to improve their own market quality for complex orders. The Exchange does not believe the proposed rule change would cause any unnecessary or inappropriate burden on intramarket competition. Particularly, the proposed product and fees apply uniformly to any purchaser in that the Exchange does not differentiate between subscribers that purchase the Complex Order Report. The proposed fees are set at a modest level that would allow any interested Member to purchase such data based on their business needs. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES C.
