On March 3rd, the SEC designated May 6, 2011, as the date by which it will determine whether to approve or disapprove the NASDAQ OMX BX's proposed new listing market, the "BX Venture Market." The proposal raises issues such as whether BX-listed securities could be more prone to manipulation, and whether investors will understand that BX-listed securities could pose substantially more risk than those listed on other markets. SEC Release No. 34-64028.
