What is OTC trading?
Over-the-counter trading, often referred to as ‘OTC trading’ enables clients to execute high-volume trades with low price slippage.
This process differs from on-exchange trading because OTC orders are routed via the Independent Reserve trading desk who broker your deal directly. The benefit of this is that it will reduce the impact of your order or trade on an open market.
Another significant advantage of OTC trading is that it will lock in one price for large orders, resulting in less slippage and better execution.

Advantage of OTC crypto trading
Reduce slippageOne key advantage of using a crypto/Bitcoin OTC service such as Independent Reserve is that market slippage is kept to a minimum. This means the gap between the cheapest price and the actual price for the volume you want to trade is minimized. The larger the trade size, the more you will save on slippage costs when executing via OTC.
Increased privacySince OTC orders are not visible or reported to the market, there is less chance your trade will signal the market and move prices away from you before you are filled.
Market insightWhilst all trades are confidential, professional brokers can provide reporting and market color, 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 desks provide access to deep pools of liquidity by tapping into their networks of institutional crypto buyers and sellers, such as miners, ICO advisories, family offices, and investment funds.
