On September 30, 2016, The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) 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: (a) The continued listing requirements for exchange-traded products in the Nasdaq Rule 5700 Series; and (b) certain requirements under Nasdaq Rule 5810 (Notification of Deficiency by the Listing Qualifications Department). The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on October 17, 2016. The Commission received no comment letters on the proposed rule change.Start Printed Page 86760
Section 19(b)(2) of the Act  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 December 1, 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, designates January 15, 2017, as the date by which the Commission shall either approve or disapprove or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove the proposed rule change (File Number SR-NASDAQ-2016-135).Start Signature
For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.6
