Section 5 -- Transactions on Unregistered Exchanges
It shall be unlawful for any broker, dealer, or exchange, directly or indirectly,
to make use of the mails or any means or instrumentality of interstate commerce
for the purpose of using any facility of an exchange within or subject to the
jurisdiction of the United States to effect any transaction in a security, or
to report any such transaction, unless such exchange (1) is registered as a national
securities exchange under section 6, or (2) is exempted
from such registration upon application by the exchange because, in the opinion
of the Commission, by reason of the limited volume of transactions effected on
such exchange, it is not practicable and not necessary or appropriate in the public
interest or for the protection of investors to require such registration.
