CFA Practice Question

A major difference between an OTC market and an exchange is the ______.

A. degree of automation of trades
B. transactions costs
C. degree of liquidity
D. None of the above
Correct Answer: D

Exchange markets and OTC markets compete effectively with each other and neither market form dominates the other. Therefore, they are competitive in each of these factors. Each has implemented technology differently, but both are highly automated. Transaction costs are competitive between them, and liquidity can be very high in both markets.

achu "liquidity CAN be very high in both markets."
I guess b/c of the word CAN, C is true. Seems like in practice there are more low liquidity items found in OTC than NYSE. But the question says ANY exchange, not the nyse.
sergashev mmm, because of word CAN, C is not correct. Generally, the stock which is liquid on NYSE will be also liquid on OTC.
