May 12, 2020.
On January 24, 2020, MIAX PEARL, LLC (“MIAX PEARL” or “Exchange”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Start Printed Page 29760Exchange Act of 1934 (“Act”) 
and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,
a proposed rule change to adopt rules to govern the trading of cash equities and establish an equities trading facility of the Exchange. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on February 12, 2020.
On March 25, 2020, the Commission extended the time period within which to approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether to approve or disapprove the proposed rule change, to May 12, 2020.
On May 8, 2020, the Exchange filed Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change.
The Commission has received no comments on the proposed rule change.
The Commission is publishing this notice and order to solicit comments on the proposed rule change, as modified by Amendment No. 1, from interested persons and to institute proceedings pursuant to Section 19(b)(2)(B) of the Act 
to determine whether to approve or disapprove the proposed rule change, as modified by Amendment No. 1.
II. Description of the Proposed Rule Change, as Modified by Amendment No. 1
As more fully set forth in the Notice and Amendment No. 1, and summarized below, the Exchange proposes to establish a platform for the trading of cash equity securities (referred to herein as “MIAX PEARL Equities”) to be regulated as an equities trading facility of the Exchange. MIAX PEARL Equities would operate pursuant to the proposed rules (“MIAX PEARL Equities Rules”) and regulatory requirements described below. This description summarizes but does not review every detail of the proposal, as modified by Amendment No. 1.
A. MIAX PEARL Equity Members
As proposed, MIAX PEARL Equities will operate an electronic trading system for equity securities (the “System”) that will provide for the electronic execution of orders pursuant to a price/time priority execution model.
The Exchange will have a new category of Exchange Member participation called “Equity Member.” 
As proposed, an Equity Member must be or become a member of the Exchange pursuant to Chapter II (Access) and continue to abide by the requirements of Chapter II of Exchange Rules and the additional requirements of Chapter XX governing participation in MIAX PEARL Equities.
An Equity Member must also be a member of another registered exchange that is not registered solely under Section 6(g) of the Exchange Act, or be a member of FINRA.
Further, an Equity Member that transacts business with public customers must at all times be a member of FINRA.
There would be two types of Equity Members: (1) Equities Order Entry Firms (“OEFs”) and (2) Equities Market Makers. Each Equity Member must be registered as a broker-dealer and have as the principal purpose of being an Equity Member the conduct of a securities business, which shall be deemed to exist if and so long as: (1) The Equity Member has qualified and acts in respect of its business on MIAX PEARL Equities as an OEF, or an Equities Market Maker, or both; and (2) all transactions effected by the Equity Member are in compliance with Section 11(a) of the Act 
and the rules and regulations adopted thereunder.
Equity Members may trade equity securities for their own proprietary accounts or, if authorized to do so under applicable law, may conduct business on behalf of customers.
OEFs are Equity Members representing orders as agent on MIAX PEARL Equities or non-Equities Market Makers conducting proprietary trading as principal.
An Equity Member may also register as an Equities Market Maker by filing a registration request with the Exchange.
An Equity Member registered as an Equities Market Maker would be required to engage in a course of dealing for its own account and to assist in the maintenance of a fair and orderly market.
Among other things, each Equities Market Maker must, on a daily basis, maintain a two-sided market on a continuous basis during regular market hours for each equity security in which it is registered as an Equities Market Maker.
Equities Market Makers may withdraw their quotations,
and may voluntarily terminate their registration with the Exchange.
Pursuant to the existing procedures set forth in Chapter IX of current Exchange Rules, the Exchange could suspend, condition, limit, prohibit or terminate the authority of an Equities Market Maker to enter quotations in one or more authorized securities for violations of applicable requirements or prohibitions.
While using the System, Equity Members and persons employed by or associated with any Equity Member would be prohibited from conduct that is: (1) Inconsistent with the maintenance of a fair and orderly market; (2) apt to impair public confidence in the operations of the Exchange; or (3) inconsistent with the ordinary and efficient conduct of business.
Should any such conduct occur, the Exchange may suspend an Equity Member's access to the System following a warning, or terminate an Start Printed Page 29761Equity Member's access to the System by notice in writing.
B. MIAX PEARL Equities Trading System
As proposed, the Exchange's equities trading System, like its system for options, will be operated as a fully automated electronic order book, and the Exchange will not maintain or operate a physical trading floor.
The Exchange has proposed to be a trading center (“Trading Center”) whose quotations can be “automated quotations” under Rule 600(b)(4).
In addition, the Exchange is designed to be an “automated trading center” under Rule 600(b)(5) whose best-priced, displayed quotation will be a “protected quotation” under Rules 600(b)(61) and 600(b)(62), and for purposes of Rule 611.
Only Equity Members and their Sponsored Participants (“Users”) would be permitted to transact business on MIAX PEARL via the System.
1. Order Types and Instructions
The Exchange proposes that Users may submit orders to the System as Limit Orders, Market Orders, or Midpoint Peg Orders.
Orders may be entered as an odd lot, round lot, or mixed lot.
The System will support two time-in-force instructions: Immediate-or-Cancel (“IOC”) or Regular Hours Only (“RHO”).
Users may submit orders with the display instructions of Displayed or Non-Displayed, but all orders eligible for display will be automatically defaulted to Displayed unless a User elects otherwise.
Users also may submit orders with instructions of: Do Not Route,
In addition, Users may mark Limit Orders as Intermarket Sweep Orders, which will allow orders so designated to be automatically matched and executed without reference to Protected Quotations at other Trading Centers.
Users may also choose to designate orders with self-trade protection modifiers to prevent executions against a resting opposite side order originating from the same market participant, Exchange Member, or trading group identifier.
As proposed, the MIAX PEARL Equities Rules will provide for Limit Order Price Protection.
The Exchange has proposed that a Limit Order to buy (sell) will be rejected if it is priced at or above (below) the greater of a specified dollar and percentage away from: (1) The Protected Best Offer for Limit Orders to buy, the Protected Best Bid for Limit Orders to sell; or (2) if the Protected Best Offer or Protected Best Bid is unavailable, the consolidated last sale price disseminated during the Regular Trading Hours on trade date; or (3) if the Protected Best Offer or Protected Best Bid and a consolidated last sale price are unavailable, the prior day's Official Closing Price identified as such by the primary listing exchange, adjusted to account for events such as corporate actions and news events.
The proposed functionality would differ from that provided by other equities exchanges by using a waterfall of reference prices and permitting Equity Members to customize the Limit Order Price Protection dollar and percentage limits on a per session basis, in lieu of using the Exchange's default parameters.
2. Opening Procedures
As proposed, the Exchange will conduct an Opening Process at the start Start Printed Page 29762of Regular Trading Hours.
During the Opening Process, the Exchange attempts to match eligible buy and sell orders at the midpoint of the NBBO.
Similar to the Opening Process conducted by other national securities exchanges,
the midpoint of the NBBO will be calculated differently depending on whether the primary listing exchange is NYSE or NYSE American,
or is any other primary listing exchange.
If the conditions to establish the Opening Process do not occur by 9:45:00 a.m. Eastern Time, the Exchange will conduct a Contingent Open, by matching all orders eligible to participate in the Opening Process at the midpoint of the then prevailing NBBO.
If the midpoint of the NBBO is not available for the Contingent Open, all orders will be handled in time sequence, beginning with the order with the oldest timestamp, and be placed on the MIAX PEARL Equities Book, cancelled, executed, or routed to away Trading Centers in accordance with the terms of the order.
Those Users that do not wish to participate in the Contingent Open may cancel their orders at any time and resubmit those orders after the Contingent Open occurs and continuous trading begins.
While an equity security is subject to a halt, suspension, or pause in trading, the Exchange will accept orders for queuing prior to the resumption of trading in the security for participation in the Re-Opening Process.
As proposed, the Re-Opening Process will occur in the same general manner as the Opening Process.
3. Order Priority and Execution
As proposed, following the Opening Process, the System will continuously and automatically match orders pursuant to price/time priority.
For equally-priced trading interest, orders categorized as displayed will have priority over orders categorized as non-displayed.
Within each priority category, orders will be ranked based on time, with each order being assigned a timestamp equal to the time the order is first placed on the MIAX PEARL Equities Book.
The System also will utilize certain collars and constraints in an effort to reduce the occurrence of erroneous trades.
The best-ranked orders to buy and best-ranked orders to sell that are displayable in the MIAX PEARL Equities book and their aggregate displayed size will be available to quotation vendors for dissemination pursuant to the requirements of Rule 602 of Regulation NMS.
Proposed MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2617(a) addresses order execution.
The proposed rule provides that an order will be cancelled back to the User if, based on market conditions, User instructions, applicable Exchange Rules and/or the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder, such order is not executable, cannot be routed to another Trading Center and cannot be posted to the MIAX PEARL Equities Book.
Proposed MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2617(a)(1)-(3) provides that the System will comply with all applicable securities laws and regulations, including Regulation NMS Rule 611, Regulation SHO, and the Plan to Address Extraordinary Market Volatility (the “LULD Plan”).
Proposed Rule 2617(a)(4) addresses how (subject to the requirements of Rule 611 and other applicable Commission and Exchange requirements), an incoming order or Aggressing Order would be matched against orders on the MIAX PEARL Equities Book. Specifically, proposed MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2617(a)(4)(A)-(B) provides that an Aggressing Order or an incoming order to buy (sell) will be automatically executed to the extent that it is priced at an amount that equals or exceeds (is less than) any order to sell (buy) in the MIAX PEARL Equities Book and is executable.
In Amendment No. 1, the Exchange modifies proposed MIAX PEARL Start Printed Page 29763Equities Rule 2617(a)(4)(C) and (D), which further addresses executions on the MIAX PEARL Equities Book, by describing how the Exchange would handle internally locked or crossed interest on the MIAX PEARL Equities Book. Proposed MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2617(a)(4)(C), as amended, acknowledges that certain orders, based on their operation and User instructions, are permitted to post and rest on the MIAX PEARL Equities Book at prices that lock or cross contra-side liquidity; provided, however, that the System would never display a locked or crossed market.
The rule states further that, if an Aggressing Order or an incoming order to buy (sell) would execute upon entry against an order to sell (buy) at the same price as or a worse price than a resting displayed order to buy (sell), the Aggressing Order or incoming order to buy (sell) will be cancelled or posted to the MIAX PEARL Equities Book and ranked in accordance with proposed MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2616.
Proposed MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2617(a)(4)(D), as modified by Amendment No. 1, governs the price at which an order is executable when it is posted non-displayed on the PEARL Equities Book and there is a contra-side displayed order at a price which results in an internally locked or crossed book.
For securities priced equal to or greater than $1.00 per share, in the case where a non-displayed order to sell (buy) is posted on the MIAX PEARL Equities Book at a price that locks or crosses a displayed order to buy (sell) pursuant to proposed MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2617(a)(4)(C) described above, an Aggressing Order or an incoming order to buy (sell) that is a market order or a limit order priced more aggressively than the order to buy (sell) displayed on the MIAX PEARL Equities Book will execute against the non-displayed order to sell (buy) resting on the PEARL Equities Book at one-half minimum price variation greater (less) than the price of the resting displayed order to buy (sell).
As initially proposed, MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2617(a)(4)(C) and (D) set forth how the Exchange would process orders when the MIAX PEARL Equities Book is internally locked.
In Amendment No. 1, the Exchange added language to these proposed rule provisions to account for the fact that certain orders also may post at prices that cross contra-side liquidity resting on the MIAX PEARL Equities Book.
The Exchange states that such an internally crossed book may occur when an incoming order of odd lot size designated as Post Only does not execute against a resting Midpoint Peg order pursuant to the Exchange's proposed economic best interest functionality under proposed MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2614(c)(2).
The Exchange provides an example where this occurs when an incoming displayable odd lot Post Only order would cross a contra-side Midpoint Peg order resting at the midpoint of the PBBO by one half of one cent ($.005) and post and display at its limit price, crossing the Midpoint Peg order.
The example further reflects where these internally crossed orders would be subsequently executable—specifically, the Midpoint Peg order would no longer be executable at the midpoint of the PBBO and instead would be executable at one-half minimum price variation more aggressive than the displayed price of the odd lot Post Only order, and the odd lot Post Only order would be executable at its displayed price.
The MIAX PEARL Equities Rules also are designed to address intermarket locks and crosses, as required by Rule 610(d) of Regulation NMS,
in that they are designed not to disseminate interest that would lock or cross a protected quote, require Users to reasonably avoid displaying interest that locks or crosses any protected quotation, and are reasonably designed to assure the reconciliation of locked or crossed interest.
The MIAX PEARL Equities Rules also provide for the re-pricing of limit orders in order to comply with Rule 201 of Regulation SHO 
and the LULD Plan,
and the repricing of non-displayed limit orders to ensure compliance with Rule 611 of Regulation NMS.
Further, with respect to odd lots, the Exchange has proposed that the working and display price of a displayable odd lot order will be adjusted both on arrival and when resting on the MIAX PEARL Equities Book depending on the odd lot order's limit price in relation the Protected NBBO and whether the Protected NBBO itself is locked or crossed, to reduce the potential for odd lot orders to be displayed on the Exchange's proprietary data feed at potentially unexecutable prices.
As proposed, MIAX PEARL Equities will support orders that are designated to be routed to the Protected NBBO as well as orders that will execute only within MIAX PEARL Equities.
The System will provide a routing service (“Routing Services”) for orders when trading interest is not available on MIAX PEARL Equities.
As the Exchange currently does for options,
it will route orders in equity securities via one or more routing brokers that are not affiliated with the Exchange.
For all Routing Services, the Exchange will determine the logic that provides Start Printed Page 29764when, how, and where orders are routed away to other Trading Centers.
The Exchange represents that the Exchange's routing logic will not provide any advantage to Users when routing orders to away Trading Centers as compared to other routing methods.
The routing broker will receive routing instructions from the Exchange to route orders to other Trading Centers and report such executions back to the Exchange.
The routing broker cannot change the terms of an order or the routing instructions, nor does the routing broker have any discretion about where to route an order.
The Exchange represents that for each routing broker used by the Exchange, an agreement will be in place between the Exchange and the routing broker that will, among other things, restrict the use of any confidential and proprietary information that the routing broker receives to legitimate business purposes necessary for routing orders at the direction of the Exchange.
Further, the Exchange will establish and maintain procedures and internal controls reasonably designed to adequately restrict the flow of confidential and proprietary information between the Exchange and the routing broker, and any other entity, including any affiliate of the routing broker; and, if the routing broker or any of its affiliates engages in any other business activities other than providing routing services to the Exchange, between the segment of the routing broker or affiliate that provides the other business activities and the segment of the routing broker that provides the Routing Services.
The Exchange may not use a routing broker for which the Exchange or any affiliate of the Exchange is the designated examining authority.
In addition, the Exchange will provide its Routing Services in compliance with the provisions of the Act and the rules thereunder, including, but not limited to, the requirements in Section 6(b)(4) and (5) of the Act that the rules of a national securities exchange provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and other charges among an exchange's members and other persons using its facilities, and not be designed to permit unfair discrimination between customers, issuers, brokers, or dealers.
The Exchange also represents that it will file a proposed rule change with the Commission pursuant to Section 19(b) of the Act prior to offering additional routing options.
The Exchange notes that use of its routing services to route orders to other market centers is optional.
Parties that do not desire to use these services must designate their orders as not available for routing.
In addition, any bid or offer entered on the Exchange routed to another Trading Center through a routing broker that results in an execution shall be binding on the Member that entered such bid or offer.
D. Securities Traded: Unlisted Trading Privileges
The Exchange is not proposing to be a listing market for equity securities, but instead proposes to trade equity securities pursuant to unlisted trading privileges (“UTP”). MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2900 establishes the Exchange's authority to trade securities on a UTP basis. MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2900(a) provides that the Exchange may extend UTP any NMS Stock that is listed on another national securities exchange or with respect to which UTP may otherwise be extended in accordance with Section 12(f) of the Act.
MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2900(a) further provides that any such security would be subject to all Exchange rules applicable to trading on the Exchange, unless otherwise noted. For any UTP security that is a UTP Exchange Traded Product, the Exchange will distribute an information circular prior to the commencement of trading in each such UTP Exchange Traded Product that generally includes the same information as is contained in the information circular provided by the listing exchange.
Equity Members must provide each purchaser of UTP Exchange Traded Products a written description of the terms and characteristics of those securities, in a form approved by the Exchange or prepared by the open-ended management company issuing such securities, not later than the time a confirmation of the first transaction in such securities is delivered to such purchaser.
Upon request of a customer, an Equity Member must also provide a prospectus for the particular UTP Exchange Traded Product.
The Exchange also proposes certain restrictions on Equity Members acting as Equities Market Makers on the Exchange in a UTP Exchange Traded Product that derives its value from one or more currencies, commodities, or derivatives based on one or more currencies or commodities, or is based on a basket or index composed of currencies or commodities.
Further, the Exchange will enter into comprehensive surveillance sharing agreements with markets that trade components of the index or portfolio on which the UTP Exchange Traded Product is based to the same extent as the listing exchange's rules require the listing exchange to enter into comprehensive surveillance sharing agreements with such markets.
The Exchange represents that it will regulate MIAX PEARL Equities using the Exchange's existing regulatory structure.
Pursuant to the Exchange's By-Laws, the Chief Regulatory Office of the Exchange will have general supervision of the regulatory operations of the Exchange, which will include responsibility for overseeing the Exchange's surveillance, examination, and enforcement functions and for administering any regulatory services agreements applicable to MIAX PEARL Start Printed Page 29765Equities.
Similarly, the Exchange's existing Regulatory Oversight Committee will be responsible for overseeing the adequacy and effectiveness of Exchange's regulatory and self-regulatory organization responsibilities, including those applicable to MIAX PEARL Equities.
As more fully discussed in the Notice, the Exchange has proposed specific business conduct and operational rules for Equity Members consistent with the approved rules of other equities exchanges, which include rules covering similar subject matter as existing Exchange Rules, applicable to options Members.
In addition, the Exchange proposes that existing rules applicable to the MIAX PEARL options market (current Chapters I though XVIII of the Exchange Rules) will apply to Equity Members and their associated persons, unless a specific MIAX PEARL Equities Rule (in proposed Chapters XIX through XXX of the Exchange Rules) governs or the context otherwise requires.
The Exchange also proposes to incorporate certain rules of other self-regulatory organizations (“SROs”) and represents that it will request an exemption from the rule filing requirements of Section 19(b) of the Exchange Act for those rules of another SRO that it proposes to incorporate by reference to the extent such rules are effected solely by virtue of a change to any of those rules.
Further, the Exchange's By-Laws provide that it has disciplinary jurisdiction over its members, including Equity Members so that it can enforce its members' compliance with its rules and the federal securities laws.
The Exchange's rules also permit it to sanction members for violations of its rules and of the federal securities laws by, among other things, expelling or suspending members, limiting members' activities, functions, or operations, fining or censuring members, or suspending or barring a person from being associated with a member.
In addition, the Exchange represents that: (1) The Exchange will join the existing equities industry agreements and establish new agreements, as necessary, pursuant to Section 17(d) of the Exchange Act, as it has with respect to its equities market; (2) the Exchange's Regulatory Services Agreement (“RSA”) with FINRA will govern many aspects of the regulation and discipline of Members that participate in equities trading, as it does for options market regulation; and (3) the Exchange will authorize Equity Members to trade on MIAX PEARL Equities and conduct surveillance of equities trading as it does for options.
The Exchange represents that it will establish Rule 17d-2 Plans for Allocation of Regulatory Responsibilities, including, subject to Commission approval: (i) A plan with FINRA pursuant to which the Exchange and FINRA will agree to allocate to FINRA, with respect to common members, regulatory responsibility for overseeing and enforcing certain applicable laws, rules, and regulations of MIAX PEARL Equities; (ii) joining the multi-party plan with FINRA and other national securities exchanges for the surveillance, investigation, and enforcement of common insider trading rules; and (iii) joining the multi-party plan with FINRA and other national securities exchanges for the allocation of regulatory responsibilities with respect to certain Regulation NMS Rules.
In addition, the Exchange represents that it will: (i) Expand its existing RSA with FINRA, pursuant to which FINRA performs various regulatory services on behalf of the Exchange, subject to the Exchange's ultimate responsibility, including the review of membership applications and the conduct of investigations, disciplinary and hearing services; (ii) join the Intermarket Surveillance Group (“ISG”); and (iii) submit an amended Minor Rule Violation Plan to the Commission under Rule 19d-1(c)(2) of the Exchange Act.
According to the Exchange, FINRA currently surveils options trading on behalf of the Exchange pursuant to an existing RSA designed to detect violations of Exchange rules and applicable federal securities laws.
The Exchange represents that this RSA will be expanded to provide for FINRA to also surveil equities trading on MIAX PEARL Equities on behalf of the Exchange.
The Exchange will remain responsible for FINRA's performance under the RSA.
In addition, with respect to exchange traded products traded on MIAX PEARL Equities pursuant to unlisted trading privileges, the Exchange represents that it will enter into a comprehensive surveillance sharing agreement with markets that trade components of the index or portfolio on which shares of an exchange-traded product is based to the same extent as the listing exchange's rules require the listing exchange to enter into a comprehensive surveillance sharing agreement with such markets.
The Exchange has also proposed Rule 2622(e) to comply with the LULD Plan, and has represented that it is identical in all material respects to the rules of other equities exchanges.
Proposed MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2622(e) states that the Exchange is a Participant Start Printed Page 29766in the LULD Plan 
and requires that Equity Members comply with the LULD Plan's provisions. Proposed MIAX PEARL Equities Rule 2622(e) also describes the Exchange's order handling procedures to comply with the LULD Plan.
III. Proceedings To Determine Whether To Approve or Disapprove the Proposed Rule Change, as Modified by Amendment No. 1
The Commission is instituting proceedings pursuant to Section 19(b)(2)(B) of the Act 
to determine whether the proposed rule change, as modified by Amendment No. 1, should be approved or disapproved.

- Section 6(b)(5) of the Act, which requires, among other things, that the rules of a national securities exchange be “designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade,” and “to protect investors and the public interest.”
