Order Instituting Administrative and Cease-and-Desist Proceedings Pursuant to Sections 19(h)(1) and 21C of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Making Findings and Imposing Sanctions and a Cease-and-Desist Order
On June 11, 2013, the SEC instituted settled cease-and-desist proceedings against Chicago Board Options Exchange, Incorporated and C2 Options Exchange, Incorporated. According to the SEC: "The Chicago Board Options Exchange ('CBOE' or the 'Exchange') failed to fulfill its fundamental responsibilities as an SRO and exchange. CBOE's failures were not mere oversights or technical violations, but a systemic breakdown in several of its regulatory and compliance responsibilities as an exchange. Not only did it fail to enforce the Commission's rules by not adequately investigating a member firm's compliance with Regulation SHO of the Exchange Act ('Reg. SHO'), CBOE's conduct also interfered with the Commission's Division of Enforcement ('Enforcement Division') staff's Reg. SHO investigation of the same member firm."
