Draft Comment Letter - FIF Comments on the Proposed Tick Size Pilot Termination Date

FIF is aware that the Commission is currently considering amending the termination date of the Tick Size Pilot Program from Wednesday, October 3, 2018 to Friday, September 28, 2018.  It is our understading that the industry would be in support of an earlier termination date to ensure that adequate time (during the weekend) is provided to implement and test the required technology changes needed to revert trading systems back to the pre-pilot trading environment.

FIF drafted a short comment letter expressing our support for the Friday, September 28 Pilot termination date.  FIF is requesting that you review the content of the linked letter, and to provide any objections to our support of the September 28 termination date or any additional comments to the program office at fifinfo@fif.com by Tuesday, August 28th at 2:00 pm.
