Unlike The Stock Exchanges, Over the counter Markets Are Not Subject To

FINRA regulates broker-dealers operating in the OTC market, which is a decentralized market where participants trade directly without exchange oversight. This results in less transparency and regulation compared to conventional stock exchanges. The New York Fed supports OTC derivative reform efforts and there is no single regulator governing the various types of derivatives in the market. To protect unsophisticated parties, the SEC can suspend trading in any stock for up to ten days. Recently, the SEC adopted amendments to enhance regulations in the OTC market.

False. Over-the-counter markets are subject to federal regulation. While they may not be subject to the same level of regulation as traditional stock exchanges, they are still regulated by entities such as FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) for broker-dealers operating in the OTC market. Additionally, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has the authority to suspend trading in any OTC stock for up to ten days. Therefore, there are federal regulations in place to oversee OTC markets.
