What is OTC trading?
OTC vs exchange trading
Advantage of OTC crypto trading
Reduce slippageThe key advantage of using a Bitcoin or crypto OTC trading desk like Independent Reserve is that price slippage becomes nearly obsolete. This means that you will be able to lock in your Bitcoin or crypto order at one price.
Increased privacyOTC orders are also the most private way to lock in a trade. OTC orders are not visible or reported to the open market, so your trade will not signal the market and move the price away from you.
Market insightWhilst all trades are confidential, professional brokers can provide reporting and market colour, which institutional traders often find valuable when making trading decisions. It is important to note that Independent Reserve does not provide financial advice. All readers and clients are strongly encouraged to conduct their own personal research.
Deeper liquidityOTC trading desks provide clients with exclusive access to deep liquidity through their network of institutional Bitcoin and crypto buyers and sellers such as miners, family offices and investment funds.
