Cindy Rodriquez,

In regards to CBOE rule filing CBOE-2005-39, please note that I believe this proposal is in the best interest of our customers. I believe this proposal will not be a significant additional burden on quote traffic as crafted. The ability of customers to trade at-the-$ options on widely recognized stocks with low volatility is necessary in this growing business. Please do not let the quote traffic issue limit this initiative.

Thank you for your consideration.

Regards,

Pete Bottini
