SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On September 18, 2008, the Commission published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to amend its rules, guidance and acceptable practices concerning trading off the centralized market, including the addition of guidance on contract market block trading rules and exchanges of futures for commodities or derivatives positions.

The comment period closes on November 17, 2008. By letter dated November 4, 2008, CME Group, Inc., requested an extension of the comment period until January 5, 2009. In order to encourage the submission of meaningful comments and to assure that all views are considered in its final determination, the Commission has determined to grant the request and to give full consideration to any comment received during the extension period. While the Commission has received some comment letters on the proposal, none yet have been from any designated contract markets, which have the responsibility of complying with Regulation 1.38 and Core Principle 9. Accordingly, the comment period for the Commission's proposed amendments to Regulation 1.38 and Part 38 is hereby extended to January 5, 2008.
