Advancing its investor analysis portal, OTC Markets Group has integrated new charting tools from ChartIQ via a partnership with EDGAR Online. The change occurs as OTC Markets has seen an increased demand of trading on its exchange.
Composed primarily of low volume micro-cap US securities, OTC Markets also contains listings of global giants such as Roche and Nestle on their OTC Pink market (formerly known as Pink Sheets) whose main listings are on European exchanges but have ADRs for US investors. Also, as the JOBS Act has made it easier for private firms to raise capital from investors, OTC exchanges such as OTC Markets is expected in the future to become a destination for many of these new shares to be traded for a secondary market. As such, upgraded HTML5 charts are viewed as an important feature to attract new investors who require better charting tools, as well as increasingly viewing the web on mobile devices.
