MRX proposes to replace the Appointed Member Program with an aggregation program for an Affiliated Entity.

To qualify for the Affiliated Entity program in November, Members must provide appropriate documentation by October 28, 2020.

An “Affiliated Entity” would be a relationship between an Appointed Market Maker and an Appointed OFP for purposes of qualifying for certain pricing specified in the Pricing Schedule. In order to become an Affiliated Entity, Market Makers and OFPs will be required to send an email to the Exchange to appoint their counterpart, at least 3 business days prior to the last day of the month to qualify for the next month.

With this proposal, market participants may submit emails to the Exchange to become Affiliated Entities to qualify for discounted pricing starting November 1, 2020, provided the emails are sent at least 3 business days prior to the first business day of November 2020. The Exchange will acknowledge receipt of the emails and specify the date the Affiliated Entity would qualify for applicable pricing, as specified in the Pricing Schedule.

Each Affiliated Entity relationship will commence on the 1st of a month and may not be terminated prior to the end of any month. An Affiliated Entity relationship will terminate after a one (1) year period, unless either party terminates earlier in writing by sending an email to the Exchange at least 3 business days prior to the last day of the month to terminate for the next month. Affiliated Entity relationships must be renewed annually. Affiliated Members may not qualify as a counterparty comprising an Affiliated Entity. Each Member may qualify for only one (1) Affiliated Entity relationship at any given time. An Affiliated Entity shall be eligible to aggregate their volume for purposes of qualifying for certain pricing specified in the Pricing Schedule.
