    NQLX

    419 and 420
    NQLX made changes to Rules 419 and 420 to explicitly require its members to time-stamp orders when negotiations end (rather than begin) for block trades and exchanges of futures for physical trades. Requiring time-stamping when negotiations end for the block trades and exchange for physical trades is in addition to the time-stamping of orders required immediately upon receipt, or execution, and any modification or cancellation, which is already required of all orders submitted to NQLX for execution. See NQLX Rules 408(b), 419(g)(1), and 420(b)(1). NQLX believes that the rule changes proposed in this filing will enhance its ability to monitor trades as required by its Rules 419 and 420.
