On January 14, 2014, NYSE MKT LLC (“NYSE MKT” or “Exchange”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Act”) 
and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,
a proposed rule change to amend various sections of both the Limited Liability Company Agreement of NYSE Amex Options LLC (“Company”) dated as of June 29, 2011 (“LLC Agreement”) and the Members Agreement dated as of June 29, 2011 by and among the Company, NYSE MKT, NYSE Euronext, Banc of America Strategic Investments Corporation, Barclays Electronic Commerce Holdings Inc., Citadel Securities LLC, Citigroup Financial Strategies, Inc., Goldman, Sachs & Co., Datek Online Management Corp. and UBS Americas Inc. (collectively, excluding the Company, NYSE MKT and NYSE Euronext, the “Founding Firms”) (“Members Agreement”) in order to make certain technical modifications and clarifications to certain provisions of the LLC Agreement and the Members Agreement. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on January 31, 2014.
The Commission received no comments on the proposal. On March 12, 2014, the Exchange filed Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change.
This order approves the proposed rule change as modified by Amendment No. 1.
After careful review, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to a national securities exchange 
and, in particular, the requirements of Sections 6(b)(1) and 6(b)(5) of the Act.
The proposal makes certain technical modifications and clarifications to certain provisions of the LLC Agreement and the Members Agreement, as well as several typographical corrections. The Commission notes that it previously found the LLC Agreement and the Members Agreement to be consistent with the Act, and in particular Sections 6(b)(1) and 6(b)(5),
and that the proposed rule change does not substantively change the relevant provisions of such agreements.
For the foregoing reasons, the Commission believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act.
It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,
that the proposed rule change (SR-NYSEMKT-2014-08), as modified by Amendment No. 1, be, and it hereby is, approved.
For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.
