The Best Market

Offers transparent and efficient trading of established, investor-focused U.S. and global companies. To qualify for the OTCQX market, companies must meet high financial standards, follow best practice corporate governance, demonstrate compliance with U.S. securities laws, be current in their disclosure, and be sponsored by a professional third-party advisor. Penny stocks, shells and companies in bankruptcy cannot qualify for OTCQX. The companies found on OTCQX are distinguished by the integrity of their operations and diligence with which they convey their qualifications.

  • Investors can access company information – OTCM’s suite of Corporate Services empowers public companies and their advisors to improve visibility and availability of information.
  • Investors can trade through the broker of their choice – OTCM’s technology enables investors to buy and sell securities through the institutional, retail, or online broker-dealer of their choice, making the trading experience nearly identical to that of trading NYSE or NASDAQ securities.
