96.091306

Pursuant to Commission Regulation §40.6(a), the HedgeStreet Rule and Instrument Committees have approved actions to a) amend the definition of "Settlement Value", as represented by Rule 1.1(v); b) increase the maximum Settlement Value for its Binary Consumer Price Index Contract to $100; and c) amend the Payout Criteria for the Daily Binary GBP/USD and USD/YEN Contracts.

HedgeStreet certifies with the Commission its intent to amend the Payout Criteria in the following Binary Contracts:

Rule 12.61  Currency Exchange GBP/USD Binary Hedgelet Contracts; and
Rule 12.62  Currency Exchange USD/YEN Binary Hedgelet Contracts.

HedgeStreet implement the amendments to Rule 1.1(v) and 12.61-12.62 above on Wednesday, September 13, 2006.

HedgeStreet will issue the Binary Consumer Price Index Contracts with a maximum Settlement Value of $100 on Monday, September 18, 2006. Since the current Binary Consumer Price Index Contracts that have a maximum Settlement Value of $10 have a Last Trade Date of Thursday, September 14, 2006, there will be no open interest in such $10 contracts upon the close of business of Friday, September 15, 2006.
