February 20, 2013.
    Pursuant to Section 11A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 
(``Act'') \1\ and Rule 608 thereunder,\2\ notice is hereby given that, 
on January 23, 2013, NYSE Euronext, on behalf of New York Stock 
Exchange LLC (``NYSE''), NYSE MKT LLC (``NYSE MKT''), and NYSE Arca, 
Inc. (``NYSE Arca''), and the following parties to the National Market 
System Plan: BATS Exchange, Inc., BATS Y-Exchange, Inc., Chicago Board 
Options Exchange, Incorporated, Chicago Stock Exchange, Inc., EDGA 
Exchange, Inc., EDGX Exchange, Inc., Financial Industry Regulatory 
Authority, Inc., NASDAQ OMX BX, Inc., NASDAQ OMX PHLX LLC, the Nasdaq

NYSE, NYSE MKT, and NYSE Arca, the ``Participants''), filed with the 
Securities and Exchange Commission (the ``Commission'') a proposal to 
amend the Plan to Address Extraordinary Market Volatility 
(``Plan'').\3\ The proposal represents the second amendment to the Plan 
(``Second Amendment''), and reflects changes unanimously adopted by the 
Participants. A copy of the Plan, as amended, is attached as Exhibit A 
hereto. Pursuant to Rule 608(b)(3)(iii) under Regulation NMS,\4\ the 
Participants designate the amendment as involving solely technical or

Letter'').

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I. Rule 608(a) of Regulation NMS

A. Purpose of the Plan

    The Participants filed the Plan in order to create a market-wide 
limit up-limit down mechanism that is intended to address extraordinary 
market volatility in ``NMS Stocks,'' as defined in Rule 600(b)(47) of 
Regulation NMS under the Act.\5\ The Plan sets forth procedures that 
provide for market-wide limit up-limit down requirements that would be 
designed to prevent trades in individual NMS Stocks from occurring 
outside of the specified Price Bands.\6\ These limit up-limit down 
requirements would be coupled with Trading Pauses, as defined in 
Section I(Y) of the Plan, to accommodate more fundamental price moves 
(as opposed to erroneous trades or momentary gaps in liquidity).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ 17 CFR 242.600(b)(47). See also Section I(H) of the Plan.
    \6\ See Section V of the Plan.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As set forth in Section V of the Plan, the price bands would 
consist of a Lower Price Band and an Upper Price Band for each NMS 
Stock.\7\ The price bands would be calculated by the Securities 
Information Processors (``SIPs'' or ``Processors'') responsible for 
consolidation of information for an NMS Stock pursuant to Rule 603(b) 
of Regulation NMS under the Act.\8\ Those price bands would be based on 
a Reference Price \9\ for each NMS Stock that equals the arithmetic 
mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS Stock over the 
immediately preceding five-minute period. The price bands for an NMS 
Stock would be calculated by applying the Percentage Parameter for such 
NMS Stock to the Reference Price, with the Lower Price Band being a 
Percentage Parameter \10\ below the Reference Price, and the Upper 
Price Band being a Percentage Parameter above the Reference Price. 
Between 9:30 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. ET and 3:35 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. ET, the 
price bands would be calculated by applying double the Percentage 
Parameters.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ Capitalized terms used herein but not otherwise defined 
shall have the meaning ascribed to such terms in the Plan. See 
Exhibit A, infra.
    \8\ 17 CFR 242.603(b). The Plan refers to this entity as the 
Processor.
    \9\ See Section I(T) of the Plan.
    \10\ As initially proposed by the Participants, the Percentage 
Parameters for Tier 1 NMS Stocks (i.e., stocks in the S&P 500 Index 
or Russell 1000 Index and certain ETPs) with a Reference Price of 
$1.00 or more would be five percent and less than $1.00 would be the 
lesser of (a) $0.15 or (b) 75 percent. The Percentage Parameters for 
Tier 2 NMS Stocks (i.e., all NMS Stocks other than those in Tier 1) 
with a Reference Price of $1.00 or more would be 10 percent and less 
than $1.00 would be the lesser of (a) $0.15 or (b) 75 percent. The 
Percentage Parameters for a Tier 2 NMS Stock that is a leveraged ETP 
would be the applicable Percentage Parameter set forth above 
multiplied by the leverage ratio of such product. On May 24, 2012, 
the Participants amended the Plan to create a 20% price band for 
Tier 1 and Tier 2 stocks with a Reference Price of $0.75 or more and 
up to and including $3.00. The Percentage Parameter for stocks with 
a Reference Price below $0.75 would be the lesser of (a) $0.15 or 
(b) 75 percent. See Letter from Janet M. McGinness, Senior Vice 
President, Legal and Corporate Secretary, NYSE Euronext, to 
Elizabeth M. Murphy, Secretary, Commission, dated May 24, 2012 
(``First Amendment'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Processors would also calculate a Pro-Forma Reference Price for 
each NMS Stock on a continuous basis during Regular Trading Hours. If a 
Pro-Forma Reference Price did not move by one percent or more from the 
Reference Price in effect, no new price bands would be disseminated, 
and the current Reference Price would remain the effective Reference 
Price. If the Pro-Forma Reference Price moved by one percent or more 
from the Reference Price in effect, the Pro-Forma Reference Price would 
become the Reference Price, and the Processors would disseminate new 
price bands based on the new Reference Price. Each new Reference Price 
would remain in effect for at least 30 seconds.
    When one side of the market for an individual security is outside 
the applicable price band, the Processors would be required to 
disseminate such

[[Page 13114]]

National Best Bid \11\ or National Best Offer \12\ with an appropriate 
flag identifying it as non-executable. When the other side of the 
market reaches the applicable price band, the market for an individual 
security would enter a Limit State,\13\ and the Processors would be 
required to disseminate such National Best Offer or National Best Bid 
with an appropriate flag identifying it as a Limit State Quotation.\14\ 
All trading would immediately enter a Limit State if the National Best 
Offer equals the Lower Limit Band and does not cross the National Best 
Bid, or the National Best Bid equals the Upper Limit Band and does not 
cross the National Best Offer. Trading for an NMS Stock would exit a 
Limit State if, within 15 seconds of entering the Limit State, all 
Limit State Quotations were executed or canceled in their entirety. If 
the market did not exit a Limit State within 15 seconds, then the 
Primary Listing Exchange would declare a five-minute trading pause, 
which would be applicable to all markets trading the security.

    \11\ 17 CFR 242.600(b)(42). See also Section I(G) of the Plan.
    \12\ Id.
    \13\ A stock enters the Limit State if the National Best Offer 
equals the Lower Price Band and does not cross the National Best 
Bid, or the National Best Bid equals the Upper Price Band and does 
not cross the National Best Offer. See Section VI(B) of the Plan.
    \14\ See Section I(D) of the Plan.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    These limit up-limit down requirements would be coupled with 
trading pauses \15\ to accommodate more fundamental price moves (as 
opposed to erroneous trades or momentary gaps in liquidity). As set 
forth in more detail in the Plan, all trading centers \16\ in NMS 
Stocks, including both those operated by Participants and those 
operated by members of Participants, would be required to establish, 
maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures that are 
reasonably designed to comply with the limit up-limit down and trading 
pause requirements specified in the Plan.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ The primary listing market would declare a trading pause in 
an NMS Stock; upon notification by the primary listing market, the 
Processor would disseminate this information to the public. No 
trades in that NMS Stock could occur during the trading pause, but 
all bids and offers may be displayed. See Section VII(A) of the 
Plan.
    \16\ As defined in Section I(X) of the Plan, a trading center 
shall have the meaning provided in Rule 600(b)(78) of Regulation NMS 
under the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Under the Plan, all trading centers would be required to establish, 
maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures reasonably 
designed to prevent the display of offers below the Lower Price Band 
and bids above the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock. The Processors 
would disseminate an offer below the Lower Price Band or bid above the 
Upper Price Band that nevertheless inadvertently may be submitted 
despite such reasonable policies and procedures, but with an 
appropriate flag identifying it as non-executable; such bid or offer 
would not be included in National Best Bid or National Best Offer 
calculations. In addition, all trading centers would be required to 
develop, maintain, and enforce policies and procedures reasonably 
designed to prevent trades at prices outside the price bands, with the 
exception of single-priced opening, reopening, and closing transactions 
on the Primary Listing Exchange.
    As stated by the Participants in the Plan, the limit up-limit down 
mechanism is intended to reduce the negative impacts of sudden, 
unanticipated price movements in NMS Stocks,\17\ thereby protecting 
investors and promoting a fair and orderly market.\18\ In particular, 
the Plan is designed to address the type of sudden price movements that 
the market experienced on the afternoon of May 6, 2010.\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ 17 CFR 242.600(b)(47).
    \18\ See Transmittal Letter, supra note 3.
    \19\ The limit up-limit down mechanism set forth in the Plan 
would replace the existing single-stock circuit breaker pilot. See 
e.g., Securities Exchange Act Release Nos. 62251 (June 10, 2010), 75 
FR 34183 (June 16, 2010) (SR-FINRA-2010-025); 62883 (September 10, 
2010), 75 FR 56608 (September 16, 2010) (SR-FINRA-2010-033).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Participants propose to adopt certain ministerial or technical 
changes to the Plan on an immediately effective basis. The following 
summarizes the Second Amendment to the Plan and the rationale behind 
those changes:
     Amending Section II.D.2.A of the Plan to include a broker-
dealer that primarily engages in trading for its own account as a 
member of the Advisory Committee. This change is designed to ensure the 
diversity of representation from the industry by including a broker-
dealer that primarily engages in trading for their own account on the 
Advisory Committee to the Plan.
     Amending Section VI.B.5 of the Plan to clarify that a 
Limit State terminates either when a Primary Listing Market declares a 
Trading Pause or the end of Regular Trading Hours. This clarification 
is designed to reduce confusion that may be caused by a Processor 
disseminating a Limit State Quotation during times when trading is 
paused or outside Regular Trading Hours when the Plan is not 
applicable.
     Amending Sections VIII.A of the Plan to establish a new 
implementation schedule for Phase I. Specifically, Phase I will be 
amended to provide that on the initial date of Plan operations of April 
8, 2013, Phase I of Plan implementation shall begin in select symbols 
from the Tier 1 NMS Stocks identified in Appendix A of the Plan. In 
addition, three months after the initial date of Plan operations, or 
such earlier date as may be announced by the Processor with at least 30 
days notice, the Plan shall fully apply to all Tier 1 NMS Stocks 
identified in Appendix A of the Plan. These modifications are in 
response to requests by the securities industry for additional time for 
systems testing by Participants and the securities industry.
     Amending Section VIII.B of the Plan to delete the last 
clause because the Processor does not disseminate a closing trade for a 
Primary Listing Exchange earlier than the end or Regular Trading Hours 
or, in the case of an early scheduled close, earlier than the scheduled 
close.
     Clarify the manner by which to report the data in Appendix 
B, Section II.G. The Participants believe that the additional detail 
regarding the data fields will be helpful for Participants to 
understand the specific data to be reported under the Plan.

B. Governing or Constituent Documents

    The governing documents of the Processor, as defined in Section 
I(P) of the Plan, will not be affected by the Plan, but once the Plan 
is implemented, the Processor's obligations will change, as set forth 
in detail in the Plan. In particular, as set forth in Section V of the 
Plan, the Processor will be responsible for calculating and 
disseminating Price Bands during Regular Trading Hours, as defined in 
Section I(R) of the Plan. Each Participant would take such actions as 
are necessary and appropriate as a party to the Market Data Plans, as 
defined in Section I(F) of the Plan, to cause and enable the Processor 
for each NMS Stock to fulfill the functions set forth in the Plan.

C. Implementation of Plan

    The initial date of the Plan operations will be April 8, 2013.

D. Development and Implementation Phases

    The Plan will be implemented as a one-year pilot program in two 
Phases, consistent with Section VIII of the Plan: Phase I of Plan 
implementation will begin on the initial date of Plan operations, in 
select symbols, with full Phase I of the Plan implementation completed 
three months after the initial date of Plan operations, or such earlier 
date as may be announced by the

[[Page 13115]]

Processor with at least 30 days notice; Phase II of Plan will commence 
six months after the initial date of the Plan or such earlier date as 
may be announced by the Processor with at least 30 days notice. The 
Participants proposed that Phase II of the Plan will begin on the first 
Monday after the six months after the initial date of the Plan, or if 
an earlier date is determined, Phase II will begin on a Monday.
    At the beginning of Phase I, the Plan shall apply to select symbols 
from the Tier 1 NMS Stocks identified in Appendix A of the Plan. During 
full Phase I implementation, the Plan shall apply to all Tier 1 NMS 
Stocks, as defined in Appendix A of the Plan, and the first price bands 
shall be calculated and disseminated, as specified in Section V(A) of 
the Plan. In Phase II, the Plan shall fully apply to all NMS Stocks.
    Phase I and Phase II of the Plan may each be rolled out to 
applicable NMS Stocks over a period not to exceed two weeks. Any such 
roll-out period will be made available in advance of the implementation 
dates for Phases I and II of the Plan via the Participants' Web sites 
and trader updates, as applicable.

E. Analysis of Impact on Competition

    The Participants do not believe that the Plan imposes any burden on 
competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the 
purposes of the Act. The Participants also do not believe that the Plan 
introduces terms that are unreasonably discriminatory for the purposes 
of Section 11A(c)(1)(D) of the Act.\20\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \20\ 15 U.S.C. 78k-1(c)(1)(D).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

F. Written Understanding or Agreements Relating to Interpretation of, 
or Participation in, Plan

    The Participants state that they have no written understandings or 
agreements relating to interpretation of the Plan. Section II(C) of the 
Plan sets forth how any entity registered as a national securities 
exchange or national securities association may become a Participant.

G. Approval of Amendment of the Plan

    Each of the Plan's Participants has executed a written amended 
Plan.

H. Terms and Conditions of Access

    Section II(C) of the Plan provides that any entity registered as a 
national securities exchange or national securities association under 
the Act may become a Participant by: (1) Becoming a participant in the 
applicable Market Data Plans, as defined in Section I(F) of the Plan; 
(2) executing a copy of the Plan, as then in effect; (3) providing each 
then-current Participant with a copy of such executed Plan; and (4) 
effecting an amendment to the Plan as specified in Section III(B) of 
the Plan.

I. Method of Determination and Imposition, and Amount of, Fees and 
Charges

    Not applicable.

J. Method and Frequency of Processor Evaluation

    Not applicable.

K. Dispute Resolution

    The Plan does not include specific provisions regarding resolution 
of disputes between or among Participants. Section III(C) of the Plan 
provides for each Participant to designate an individual to represent 
the Participant as a member of an Operating Committee.\21\ No later 
than the initial date of the Plan, the Operating Committee would be 
required to designate one member of the Operating Committee to act as 
the Chair of the Operating Committee. The Operating Committee shall 
monitor the procedures established pursuant to the Plan and advise the 
Participants with respect to any deficiencies, problems, or 
recommendations as the Operating Committee may deem appropriate. Any 
recommendation for an amendment to the Plan from the Operating 
Committee that receives an affirmative vote of at least two-thirds of 
the Participants, but is less than unanimous, shall be submitted to the 
Commission as a request for an amendment to the Plan initiated by the 
Commission under Rule 608 of Regulation NMS under the Act.\22\

Preamble

    The Participants submit to the SEC this Plan establishing 
procedures to address extraordinary volatility in NMS Stocks. The 
procedures provide for market-wide limit up-limit down requirements 
that prevent trades in individual NMS Stocks from occurring outside of 
the specified Price Bands. These limit up-limit down requirements are 
coupled with Trading Pauses to accommodate more fundamental price 
moves. The Plan procedures are designed, among other things, to protect 
investors and promote fair and orderly markets. The Participants 
developed this Plan pursuant to Rule 608(a)(3) of Regulation NMS under 
the Exchange Act, which authorizes the Participants to act jointly in

    (A) Advisory Committee Selections. By affirmative vote of a 
majority of the Participants, the Participants shall select at least 
one representatives from each of the following categories to be members 
of the Advisory Committee: (1) A broker-dealer with a substantial 
retail investor customer base; (2) a broker-dealer with a substantial 
institutional investor customer base; (3) an alternative trading 
system; (4) a broker-dealer that primarily engages in trading for its

amendments to the Plan.
    (4) Meetings and Information. Members of the Advisory Committee 
shall have the right to attend meetings of the Operating Committee and

that the Operating Committee may meet in executive session if, by 
affirmative vote of a majority of the Participants, the Operating 
Committee determines that an item of Plan business requires 
confidential treatment.

III. Amendments to Plan

(A) General Amendments

    Except with respect to the addition of new Participants to the 
Plan, any proposed change in, addition to, or deletion from the Plan 
shall be effected by means of a written amendment to the Plan that: (1) 
Sets forth the change, addition, or deletion; (2) is executed on behalf 
of each Participant; and, (3) is approved by the SEC pursuant to Rule 
608 of Regulation NMS under the Exchange Act, or otherwise becomes 
effective under Rule 608 of Regulation NMS under the Exchange Act.

 (B) New Participants

    With respect to new Participants, an amendment to the Plan may be 
effected by the new national securities exchange or national securities 
association executing a copy of the Plan, as then in effect (with the 
only changes being the addition of the new Participant's name in 
Section II(A) of the Plan) and submitting such executed Plan to the SEC 
for approval. The amendment shall be effective when it is approved by 
the SEC in accordance with Rule 608 of Regulation NMS under the 
Exchange Act or otherwise becomes effective pursuant to Rule 608 of 
Regulation NMS under the Exchange Act.

(C) Operating Committee

    (1) Each Participant shall select from its staff one individual to 
represent the Participant as a member of an Operating Committee, 
together with a substitute for such individual. The substitute may 
participate in deliberations of the Operating Committee and shall be 
considered a voting member thereof only in the absence of the primary 
representative. Each Participant shall have one vote on all matters 
considered by the Operating Committee. No later than the initial date 
of Plan operations, the Operating Committee shall designate one member 
of the Operating Committee to act as the Chair of the Operating 
Committee.
    (2) The Operating Committee shall monitor the procedures 
established pursuant to this Plan and advise the Participants with 
respect to any deficiencies, problems, or recommendations as the 
Operating Committee may deem appropriate. The Operating Committee shall 
establish specifications and procedures for the implementation and 
operation of the Plan that are consistent with the provisions of this 
Plan and the Appendixes thereto. With respect to matters in this 
paragraph, Operating Committee decisions shall be approved by a simple 
majority vote.
    (3) Any recommendation for an amendment to the Plan from the 
Operating Committee that receives an affirmative vote of at least two-
thirds of the Participants, but is less than unanimous, shall be 
submitted to the SEC as a request for an amendment to the Plan 
initiated by the Commission under Rule 608 of Regulation NMS.

IV. Trading Center Policies and Procedures

    All trading centers in NMS Stocks, including both those operated by 
Participants and those operated by members of Participants, shall 
establish, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures that 
are reasonably designed to comply with the limit up--limit down 
requirements specified in Sections VI of the Plan, and to comply with 
the Trading Pauses specified in Section VII of the Plan.

V. Price Bands

(A) Calculation and Dissemination of Price Bands

    (1) The Processor for each NMS stock shall calculate and 
disseminate to the public a Lower Price Band and an Upper Price Band 
during Regular Trading Hours for such NMS Stock. The Price Bands shall 
be based on a Reference Price for each NMS Stock that equals the 
arithmetic mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS 
stock over the immediately preceding five-minute period (except for 
periods following openings and reopenings, which are addressed below). 
If no Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS Stock have occurred 
over the immediately preceding five-minute period, the previous 
Reference Price shall remain in effect. The Price Bands for an NMS 
Stock shall be calculated by applying the Percentage Parameter for such 
NMS Stock to the Reference Price, with the Lower Price Band being a 
Percentage Parameter below the Reference Price, and the Upper Price 
Band being a Percentage Parameter above the Reference Price. The Price 
Bands shall be calculated during Regular Trading Hours. Between 9:30 
a.m. and 9:45 a.m. ET, and 3:35 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. ET, or in the case 
of an early scheduled close, during the last 25 minutes of trading 
before the early scheduled close, the Price Bands shall be calculated 
by applying double the Percentage Parameters set forth in Appendix A. 
If a Reopening Price does not occur within ten minutes after the 
beginning of a Trading Pause, the Price Band, for the first 30 seconds 
following the reopening after that Trading Pause, shall be calculated 
by applying triple the Percentage Parameters set forth in Appendix A.
    (2) The Processor shall calculate a Pro-Forma Reference Price on a 
continuous basis during Regular Trading Hours, as specified in Section 
V(A)(1) of the Plan. If a Pro-Forma Reference Price has not moved by 1% 
or more from the Reference Price currently in effect, no new Price 
Bands shall be disseminated, and the current Reference Price shall 
remain the effective Reference Price. When the Pro-Forma Reference 
Price has moved by 1% or more from the Reference Price currently

[[Page 13118]]

in effect, the Pro-Forma Reference Price shall become the Reference 
Price, and the Processor shall disseminate new Price Bands based on the 
new Reference Price; provided, however, that each new Reference Price 
shall remain in effect for at least 30 seconds.

 (B) Openings

    (1) Except when a Regulatory Halt is in effect at the start of 
Regular Trading Hours, the first Reference Price for a trading day 
shall be the Opening Price on the Primary Listing Exchange in an NMS 
Stock if such Opening Price occurs less than five minutes after the 
start of Regular Trading Hours. During the period less than five 
minutes after the Opening Price, a Pro-Forma Reference Price shall be 
updated on a continuous basis to be the arithmetic mean price of 
Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS Stock during the period 
following the Opening Price (including the Opening Price), and if it 
differs from the current Reference Price by 1% or more shall become the 
new Reference Price, except that a new Reference Price shall remain in 
effect for at least 30 seconds. Subsequent Reference Prices shall be 
calculated as specified in Section V(A) of the Plan.
    (2) If the Opening Price on the Primary Listing Exchange in an NMS 
Stock does not occur within five minutes after the start of Regular 
Trading Hours, the first Reference Price for a trading day shall be the 
arithmetic mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS 
Stock over the preceding five minute time period, and subsequent 
Reference Prices shall be calculated as specified in Section V(A) of 
the Plan.

(C) Reopenings

    (1) Following a Trading Pause in an NMS Stock, and if the Primary 
Listing Exchange has not declared a Regulatory Halt, the next Reference 
Price shall be the Reopening Price on the Primary Listing Exchange if 
such Reopening Price occurs within ten minutes after the beginning of 
the Trading Pause, and subsequent Reference Prices shall be determined 
in the manner prescribed for normal openings, as specified in Section 
V(B)(1) of the Plan. If such Reopening Price does not occur within ten 
minutes after the beginning of the Trading Pause, the first Reference 
Price following the Trading Pause shall be equal to the last effective 
Reference Price before the Trading Pause. Subsequent Reference Prices 
shall be calculated as specified in Section V(A) of the Plan.
    (2) Following a Regulatory Halt, the next Reference Price shall be 
the Opening or Reopening Price on the Primary Listing Exchange if such 
Opening or Reopening Price occurs within five minutes after the end of 
the Regulatory Halt, and subsequent Reference Prices shall be 
determined in the manner prescribed for normal openings, as specified 
in Section V(B)(1) of the Plan. If such Opening or Reopening Price has 
not occurred within five minutes after the end of the Regulatory Halt, 
the Reference Price shall be equal to the arithmetic mean price of 
Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS Stock over the preceding 
five minute time period, and subsequent Reference Prices shall be 
calculated as specified in Section V(A) of the Plan.

VI. Limit Up-Limit Down Requirements

(A) Limitations on Trades and Quotations Outside of Price Bands

    (1) All trading centers in NMS Stocks, including both those 
operated by Participants and those operated by members of Participants, 
shall establish, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures 
that are reasonably designed to prevent trades at prices that are below 
the Lower Price Band or above the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock. 
Single-priced opening, reopening, and closing transactions on the 
Primary Listing Exchange, however, shall be excluded from this 
limitation. In addition, any transaction that both (i) does not update 
the last sale price (except if solely because the transaction was 
reported late), and (ii) is excepted or exempt from Rule 611 under 
Regulation NMS shall be excluded from this limitation.
    (2) When a National Best Bid is below the Lower Price Band or a 
National Best Offer is above the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock, the 
Processor shall disseminate such National Best Bid or National Best 
Offer with an appropriate flag identifying it as non-executable. When a 
National Best Offer is equal to the Lower Price Band or a National Best 
Bid is equal to the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock, the Processor 
shall distribute such National Best Bid or National Best Offer with an 
appropriate flag identifying it as a ``Limit State Quotation''.
    (3) All trading centers in NMS Stocks, including both those 
operated by Participants and those operated by members of Participants, 
shall establish, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures 
that are reasonably designed to prevent the display of offers below the 
Lower Price Band and bids above the Upper Price Band for an NMS Stock. 
The Processor shall disseminate an offer below the Lower Price Band or 
bid above the Upper Price Band that may be submitted despite such 
reasonable policies and procedures, but with an appropriate flag 
identifying it as non-executable; provided, however, that any such bid 
or offer shall not be included in National Best Bid or National Best 
Offer calculations.

(B) Entering and Exiting a Limit State

    (1) All trading for an NMS Stock shall immediately enter a Limit 
State if the National Best Offer equals the Lower Price Band and does 
not cross the National Best Bid, or the National Best Bid equals the 
Upper Price Band and does not cross the National Best Offer.
    (2) When trading for an NMS Stock enters a Limit State, the 
Processor shall disseminate this information by identifying the 
relevant quotation (i.e., a National Best Offer that equals the Lower 
Price Band or a National Best Bid that equals the Upper Price Band) as 
a Limit State Quotation. At this point, the Processor shall cease 
calculating and disseminating updated Reference Prices and Price Bands 
for the NMS Stock until either trading exits the Limit State or trading 
resumes with an opening or re-opening as provided in Section V.
    (3) Trading for an NMS Stock shall exit a Limit State if, within 15 
seconds of entering the Limit State, the entire size of all Limit State 
Quotations are executed or cancelled.
    (4) If trading for an NMS Stock exits a Limit State within 15 
seconds of entry, the Processor shall immediately calculate and 
disseminate updated Price Bands based on a Reference Price that equals 
the arithmetic mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions for the NMS 
Stock over the immediately preceding five-minute period (including the 
period of the Limit State).
    (5) If trading for an NMS Stock does not exit a Limit State within 
15 seconds of entry, the Limit State will terminate when the Primary 
Listing Exchange declares a Trading Pause pursuant to Section VII of 
the Plan or at the end of Regular Trading Hours. [If trading for an NMS 
Stock is in a Limit State at the end of Regular Trading Hours, the 
Limit State will terminate when the Primary Listing Exchange executes a 
closing transaction in the NMS Stock or five minutes after the end of 
Regular Trading Hours, whichever is earlier.]

VII. Trading Pauses

(A) Declaration of Trading Pauses

    (1) If trading for an NMS Stock does not exit a Limit State within 
15 seconds of entry during Regular Trading Hours, then the Primary 
Listing Exchange shall declare a Trading Pause for such NMS Stock and 
shall notify the Processor.

[[Page 13119]]

    (2) The Primary Listing Exchange may also declare a Trading Pause 
for an NMS Stock when an NMS Stock is in a Straddle State, which is 
when National Best Bid (Offer) is below (above) the Lower (Upper) Price 
Band and the NMS Stock is not in a Limit State, and trading in that NMS 
Stock deviates from normal trading characteristics such that declaring 
a Trading Pause would support the Plan's goal to address extraordinary 
market volatility. The Primary Listing Exchange shall develop policies 
and procedures for determining when it would declare a Trading Pause in 
such circumstances. If a Trading Pause is declared for an NMS Stock 
under this provision, the Primary Listing Exchange shall notify the 
Processor.
    (3) The Processor shall disseminate Trading Pause information to 
the public. No trades in an NMS Stock shall occur during a Trading 
Pause, but all bids and offers may be displayed.

 (B) Reopening of Trading During Regular Trading Hours

    (1) Five minutes after declaring a Trading Pause for an NMS Stock, 
and if the Primary Listing Exchange has not declared a Regulatory Halt, 
the Primary Listing Exchange shall attempt to reopen trading using its 
established reopening procedures. The Trading Pause shall end when the 
Primary Listing Exchange reports a Reopening Price.
    (2) The Primary Listing Exchange shall notify the Processor if it 
is unable to reopen trading in an NMS Stock for any reason other than a 
significant order imbalance and if it has not declared a Regulatory 
Halt. The Processor shall disseminate this information to the public, 
and all trading centers may begin trading the NMS Stock at this time.
    (3) If the Primary Listing Exchange does not report a Reopening 
Price within ten minutes after the declaration of a Trading Pause in an 
NMS Stock, and has not declared a Regulatory Halt, all trading centers 
may begin trading the NMS Stock.
    (4) When trading begins after a Trading Pause, the Processor shall 
update the Price Bands as set forth in Section V(C)(1) of the Plan.

 (C) Trading Pauses Within Five Minutes of the End of Regular Trading 
Hours

    (1) If a Trading Pause for an NMS Stock is declared less than five 
minutes before the end of Regular Trading Hours, the Primary Listing 
Exchange shall attempt to execute a closing transaction using its 
established closing procedures. All trading centers may begin trading 
the NMS Stock when the Primary Listing Exchange executes a closing 
transaction.
    (2) If the Primary Listing Exchange does not execute a closing 
transaction within five minutes after the end of Regular Trading Hours, 
all trading centers may begin trading the NMS Stock.

VIII. Implementation

    The initial date of Plan operations shall be April 8, 2013.

(A) Phase I

    (1) On the initial date of Plan operations, Phase I of Plan 
implementation shall begin in select symbols from the Tier 1 NMS Stocks 
identified in Appendix A of the Plan. [apply immediately following the 
initial date of Plan operations.]
    (2) Three months after the initial date of Plan operations, or such 
earlier date as may be announced by the Processor with at least 30 days 
notice,[During Phase I,] the Plan shall fully apply [only] to [the]all 
Tier 1 NMS Stocks identified in Appendix A of the Plan.
    (3) During Phase I, the first Price Bands for a trading day shall 
be calculated and disseminated 15 minutes after the start of Regular 
Trading Hours as specified in Section (V)(A) of the Plan. No Price 
Bands shall be calculated and disseminated less than 30 minutes before 
the end of Regular Trading Hours, and trading shall not enter a Limit 
State less than 25 minutes before the end of Regular Trading Hours.

(B) Phase II--Full Implementation

    Six months after the initial date of Plan operations, or such 
earlier date as may be announced by the Processor with at least 30 days 
notice, the Plan shall fully apply (i) to all NMS Stocks; and (ii) 
beginning at 9:30 a.m. ET, and ending at 4:00 p.m. ET each trading day, 
or earlier in the case of an early scheduled close [or if the Processor 
disseminates a closing trade for the Primary Listing Exchange].

(C) Pilot

    The Plan shall be implemented on a one-year pilot basis.

IX. Withdrawal From Plan

    If a Participant obtains SEC approval to withdraw from the Plan, 
such Participant may withdraw from the Plan at any time on not less 
than 30 days' prior written notice to each of the other Participants. 
At such time, the withdrawing Participant shall have no further rights 
or obligations under the Plan.

X. Counterparts and Signatures

    The Plan may be executed in any number of counterparts, no one of 
which need contain all signatures of all Participants, and as many of 
such counterparts as shall together contain all such signatures shall 
constitute one and the same instrument.
    IN WITNESS THEREOF, this Plan has been executed as of the ---- day 
of ---------- 2013 by each of the parties hereto.

Appendix A--Percentage Parameters

Tier 1 NMS Stocks

    (1) Tier 1 NMS Stocks shall include all NMS Stocks included in 
the S&P 500 Index, the Russell 1000 Index, and the exchange-traded 
products (``ETP'') listed on Schedule 1 to this Appendix. Schedule 1 
to the Appendix will be reviewed and updated semi-annually based on 
the fiscal year by the Primary Listing Exchange to add ETPs that 
meet the criteria, or delete ETPs that are no longer eligible. To 
determine eligibility for an ETP to be included as a Tier 1 NMS 
Stock, all ETPs across multiple asset classes and issuers, including 
domestic equity, international equity, fixed income, currency, and 
commodities and futures will be identified. Leveraged ETPs will be 
excluded and the list will be sorted by notional consolidated 
average daily volume (``CADV''). The period used to measure CADV 
will be from the first day of the previous fiscal half year up until 
one week before the beginning of the next fiscal half year. Daily 
volumes will be multiplied by

[[Page 13120]]

closing prices and then averaged over the period. ETPs, including 
inverse ETPs, that trade over $2,000,000 CADV will be eligible to be 
included as a Tier 1 NMS Stock. To ensure that ETPs that track 
similar benchmarks but that do not meet this volume criterion do not 
become subject to pricing volatility when a component security is 
the subject of a trading pause, non-leveraged ETPs that have traded 
below this volume criterion, but that track the same benchmark as an 
ETP that does meet the volume criterion, will be deemed eligible to 
be included as a Tier 1 NMS Stock. The semi-annual updates to 
Schedule 1 do not require an amendment to the Plan. The Primary 
Listing Exchanges will maintain the updated Schedule 1 on their 
respective Web sites.
    (2) The Percentage Parameters for Tier 1 NMS Stocks with a 
Reference Price more than $3.00 shall be 5%.
    (3) The Percentage Parameters for Tier 1 NMS Stocks with a 
Reference Price equal to $0.75 and up to and including $3.00 shall 
be 20%.
    (4) The Percentage Parameters for Tier 1 NMS Stocks with a 
Reference Price less than $0.75 shall be the lesser of (a) $0.15 or 
(b) 75%.
    (5) The Reference Price used for determining which Percentage 
Parameter shall be applicable during a trading day shall be based on 
the closing price of the NMS Stock on the Primary Listing Exchange 
on the previous trading day, or if no closing price exists, the last 
sale on the Primary Listing Exchange reported by the Processor.

II. Tier 2 NMS Stocks

    (1) Tier 2 NMS Stocks shall include all NMS Stocks other than 
those in Tier 1, provided, however, that all rights and warrants are 
excluded from the Plan.
    (2) The Percentage Parameters for Tier 2 NMS Stocks with a 
Reference Price more than $3.00 shall be 10%.
    (3) The Percentage Parameters for Tier 2 NMS Stocks with a 
Reference Price equal to $0.75 and up to and including $3.00 shall 
be 20%.
    (4) The Percentage Parameters for Tier 2 NMS Stocks with a 
Reference Price less than $0.75 shall be the lesser of (a) $0.15 or 
(b) 75%.
    (5) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Percentage Parameters for 
a Tier 2 NMS Stock that is a leveraged ETP shall be the applicable 
Percentage Parameter set forth in clauses (2), (3), or (4) above, 
multiplied by the leverage ratio of such product.
    (6) The Reference Price used for determining which Percentage 
Parameter shall be applicable during a trading day shall be based on 
the closing price of the NMS Stock on the Primary Listing Exchange 
on the previous trading day, or if no closing price exists, the last 
sale on the Primary Listing Exchange reported by the Processor.
