Rule 108 reads, "No bid or offer made by a member or made on an order for stock originated by a member while on the Floor to establish or increase a position in such stock for an account in which such member has an interest shall be entitled to parity with a bid or offer made on an order originated off the Floor, except that such a bid or offer shall be entitled to parity with a bid or offer made on an order originated off the Floor and being executed pursuant to Section 11(a)(1)(G) of the Act and Rule 11a1-1(T) thereunder. The foregoing shall not apply to specialists, with respect to automatic executions. Members who do not want specialists to trade on parity with their customers' orders may not include such orders in their Floor broker agency interest files."
