OTC Markets announces overnight trading


OTC Markets Group [OTCQX: OTCM], operator of regulated financial markets for 12,000 US and global securities, this week introduced OTC Overnight, a new offering that will make OTC equity securities available for trading Sunday through Thursday between 8 PM and 4 AM eastern time.

Active securities across the OTC market tiers, including global brands like Roche, Adidas, Air Canada and Techtronic Industries, will be eligible for trading in an overnight session by broker-dealer subscribers in US dollars. OTC Markets expects that OTC Overnight will be available in the second quarter of this year on the OTC Link NQB Alternative Trading System.

This will allow investors to track and trade thousands of global equity securities during Asian market hours, at European market open and overnight in the USA.

What are the benefits of OTC Overnight Trading?

Overnight trading will significantly expand accessibility and comprehensive market data coverage for the OTC markets. As more clients connect to the platform and demand for overnight trading grows, OTC Markets Group says it plans to expand the offering to additional securities within its network.

The group says it continues to actively take steps to establish itself as a global market that meets the needs of investors, broker-dealers and issuers at all levels.

“We have seen an increased demand from investors, broker-dealers, and other market participants looking to access the largest financial center in the world in their respective time zones,” said Matt Fuchs, Executive Vice President of Market Data at OTC Markets Group. “We are uniquely positioned to make this possible and create new levels of opportunity for thousands of global equities.”

OTC Link LLC, operator of OTC Link NQB IDQS, filed an amended Form ATS regarding the new overnight session. Using current FIX and multicast connectivity to the OTC Link NQB ATS, broker-dealers can expand offerings for customers.
