(redirected from Over-the-Counter Options)

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.
