Broker for OTC stock? Outside the registered accounts I would think any broker would suffice. Some may still have the old hand holding restriction in place for newbie or lowrung investors so check on that.

I only have $15000 to fool around but i' m at home often cause i don' t work everyday so i can follow the course of a stock by the minutes almost ...
Any idea where to get a better streaming for US OTC than Yahoo which is 30 mn delayed ...

I attempted to purchase into a company thats existing from bankruptcy this morning thats trading on the pink slips via ScotiaiTrade however they won't let you do it online... you have to call in and specifically ask for a trader to complete the transaction for you

These are incredibly difficult to deposit. When I tried I was told that because the OCBB/Pink Sheets are so sketchy that no brokerages will touch them - in Canada. That proved quite true.

I was able to open an account in Colorado and then transfer it all into my TDW. Many, many hassles and I learned that if it is on the pink - don't touch it.

Here's the response from the iTrade CSR:

Unfortunately we cannot act upon trading instructions sent via email.* The restriction on online Pink Sheet buy orders was put in place by our Compliance Department for client security reasons as a lot of fraudulent trading takes place on the pink sheets.
