According to the SEC press release, on Jan. 4, 2018, NYSE Arca, Inc. submitted a filing for a proposed rule change which would permit the listing and trading of shares of the ETFs under the NYSE Arca Rule 8.200-E.
In response to this, the SEC indicated that it would need more time to study and analyze the proposed changes to make sure that they are in line with its standards.
