Release No. 34-76210; File No. SR-EDGA-2015-36

Self-Regulatory Organizations; EDGA Exchange, Inc.; Notice of Designation of a Longer Period for Commission Action on a Proposed Rule Change To Amend Rules 1.5(s), 11.1(a)(1), 11.6 and 11.8

October 21, 2015.

On September 3, 2015, EDGA Exchange, Inc. (the ``Exchange'' or ``EDGA'') 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 amend rules related to the Pre-Opening Session, including revising: (1) Exchange Rule 1.5(s) to state that the Pre-

Opening Session will start at 7:00 a.m. rather than 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time and (2) Exchange Rule 11.1(a)(1) regarding the hours of trading and trading days of the Exchange to account for the Pre-Opening Session starting at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Time. The Exchange also proposes to adopt a new order instruction, Effective Start Time, including revising: (1) Exchange Rule 11.6 to define Effective Start Time as an order instruction that would allow Members \3\ to indicate a time upon which their order may become eligible for execution and (2) Exchange Rule 11.8 to identify the order types that may utilize an Effective Start Time order instruction. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on September 10, 2015.\4\
