Technical Amendments to Rules Setting Forth the Method for Determining Market Capitalization and Dollar Value of Average Daily Trading Volume; Application of the Definition of Narrow-Based Security Index
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``CFTC'') and the Securities and Exchange Commission (``SEC'') (collectively ``Commissions'') are adopting technical amendments to certain references in rules under the Commodity Exchange Act (``CEA'') and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (``Exchange Act'') that set forth the method for determining market capitalization and dollar value of average daily trading volume, to reflect new terminology and rule designations that will become effective as a result of the adoption by the SEC of Regulation NMS. Specifically, the phrase ``reported securities as defined in Sec. 240.11Ac1-1'' will be replaced with the phrase ``NMS securities as defined in Sec. 242.600.''
