Over-the-Counter Option

Over-the-Counter Option

An option traded off-exchange, as opposed to a listed stock option. The OTC option has a direct link between buyer and seller, has no secondary market, and has no standardization of striking prices and expiration dates. See also Secondary Market.

OTC Options

Option contracts that are not traded on an exchange. Because they are over-the-counter, OTC options are not standardized contracts and, as a result, can have any number of unusual features. This allows investors more flexibility, but creates additional risk. See also: Exotic option.
