   August 13, 2014.

   On June 17, 2014, Miami International Securities Exchange LLC ("MIAX" or "Exchange") 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 list and trade on the Exchange options on shares of the iShares MSCI Brazil Capped ETF, iShares MSCI Chile Capped ETF, iShares MSCI Peru Capped ETF, and iShares MSCI Spain Capped ETF (collectively "iShare ETFs"). The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on July 3, 2014. /3/ No comments were received on the proposed rule change.

   FOOTNOTE 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). END FOOTNOTE

   FOOTNOTE 2 17 CFR 240.19b-4. END FOOTNOTE

   FOOTNOTE 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 72492 (June 27, 2014), 79 FR 38099. END FOOTNOTE

   Section 19(b)(2) of the Act /4/ provides that within 45 days of the publication of notice of the filing of a proposed rule change, or within such longer period up to 90 days as the Commission may designate if it finds such longer period to be appropriate and publishes its reasons for so finding or as to which the self-regulatory organization consents, the Commission shall either approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be disapproved. The 45th day for this filing is August 17, 2014. The Commission is extending this 45-day time period.

   FOOTNOTE 4 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(2). END FOOTNOTE

   The Commission finds it appropriate to designate a longer period within which to take action on the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider this proposed rule change. The proposed rule change, if approved, would allow the Exchange to list for trading options on shares of the iShare ETFs for which the Exchange has not entered into comprehensive surveillance sharing agreements with the underlying foreign markets.

   Accordingly, the Commission, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act, /5/ designates October 1, 2014, as the date by which the Commission should either approve or disapprove, or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove, the proposed rule change (File No. SR-MIAX-2014-30).

   FOOTNOTE 5 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(2). END FOOTNOTE

For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority. /6/

   FOOTNOTE 6 17 CFR 200.30-3(a)(31). END FOOTNOTE

Kevin M. O'Neill,

Deputy Secretary.
