Over-The-Counter Market (OTC)


A negotiated market for the trading of unlisted stocks. Not all over-the-counter stocks are required to file financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), making it difficult to secure reliable information on which to base investment decisions. See OTCBB.
