That's an excellent question, but first of all let me tell you or perhaps I should throw a disclosure out. I'm not here to give you stock advice or to solicit, however commonly the term over the counter stock is commonly referred to a stock that is not traded publicly on exchanges such as the New York Exchange or the AMEX, OK? An over the counter stock generally is a stock that is traded within a dealer network or group if you will. Derivatives is a common over the counter stock meaning that it is not traded publicly, again through the New York Stock Exchange or AMEX. As in all things, if you're looking to do over the trading, you may want to do some homework. Make sure you understand who you're dealing with, how and when you can get your money back.
