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.

OTC vs exchange trading in Singapore

For most crypto traders in Singapore, trading on a reliable platform like Independent Reserve will satisfy all trading needs. However, for large orders (50,000+ SGD) clients will get the best experience leveraging our industry leading OTC desk.

  • Reduced slippage

    One of the main advantages of using an OTC desk in Singapore for Bitcoin and crypto trading is the reduction in price slippage. This means that you will be able to lock in your larger order for Bitcoin or another cryptocurrency at one price.
  • Market insights

    Learn from our veteran brokers who can provide reporting and market colour, which institutional investors in Singapore often find valuable when making decisions. Please note that Independent Reserve does not provide financial advice. All clients are strongly encouraged to conduct their own research.
  • Increased privacy

    OTC desks are the most private way for you to trade crypto in Singapore. OTC orders are not visible or reported to the open market, this means that your trade will not signal the market and move the price away from you.

    Our industry leading OTC desk will provide you with exclusive access to deep liquidity through our network of institutional Bitcoin and crypto buyers and sellers.
