Start Preamble August 23, 2016.

On June 30, 2016, New York Stock Exchange LLC (“Exchange”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Act”) [1] and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,[2] a proposed rule change to (1) allow the Exchange to trade pursuant to unlisted trading privileges (“UTP”) any NMS Stock listed on another national securities exchange; (2) establish listing and trading requirements for exchange-traded products (“ETPs”); and (3) adopt new equity trading rules relating to trading halts of securities traded pursuant to UTP on the Pillar platform. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on July 14, 2016.[3] On July 26, 2016, the Exchange filed Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change.[4] The Start Printed Page 59260Commission has received no comments on the proposed rule change.

Section 19(b)(2) of the Act [5] provides that, within 45 days of the publication of notice of the filing of a proposed rule change, or within such longer period up to 90 days as the Commission may designate if it finds such longer period to be appropriate and publishes its reasons for so finding or as to which the self-regulatory organization consents, the Commission shall either approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be disapproved. The 45th day after publication of the notice for this proposed rule change is August 28, 2016. The Commission is extending this 45-day time period.

The Commission finds that it is appropriate to designate a longer period within which to take action on the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider the proposed rule change. Accordingly, the Commission, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,[6] designates October 12, 2016, as the date by which the Commission should either approve or disapprove or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove the proposed rule change (File Number SR-NYSE-2016-44).

4.  In Amendment No. 1, the Exchange: (1) Added a bullet point stating that “[b]ecause the Exchange's rules regarding the production of books and records are described in Rule 440, the Exchange is proposing to refer to Rule 440 in its proposed rules wherever NYSE Arca Equities Rule 4.4 is referenced in the rules of NYSE Arca Equities proposed in this filing;” (2) deleted the sentence stating that “[i]f an exchange has approved trading rules, procedures and listing standards in place that have been approved by the Commission for the product class that would include a new derivative securities product, the listing and trading of such `new derivative securities product,' does not require a proposed rule change under Section 19b-4 of the Act” and made conforming changes to the rest of that paragraph; (3) deleted the bullet point that stated “[c]orrection of a typographical error in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400(a) so that proposed Rule 8.400(a) reads `as such terms are used in Rule 5.1(b)' in the last sentence, rather than `as such terms are used in the Rule 5.1(b)' as is currently drafted in NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.400(a);” and (4) noted that “for new ETPs to be traded pursuant to UTP, which are listed and traded on another exchange pursuant to Rule 19b-4(e), the Exchange would be required to file Form 19b-4(e) with the Commission in accordance with the requirements therein.” Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change is available at:​comments/​sr-nyse-2016-44/​nyse201644-1.pdf. Because Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change does not materially alter the substance of the proposed rule change or raise unique or novel regulatory issues, Amendment No. 1 is not subject to notice and comment.
