These Were The Most Active Securities On OTC Markets In October

Dollar trading volume on OTC Markets topped $29 billion in October, approximately a 4.5% increase from September.

For the month, total dollar volume on the OTCQX Market, the top tier of OTC Markets, was approximately $4.5 billion, down about 8% from September. Dollar volume on the OTCQB Market, the second tier of OTC Markets, however, was up dramatically, exceeding $3.5 billion, a 227% month-over-month increase from September.

As far as individual securities, the biggest volume gainers were spread throughout different countries and industries, showing no clear trend.

The security with the greatest month-over-month gains in dollar volume on OTCQX (in the top 30 most actively traded securities) was the F share of Roche Holding Ltd (OTCQX: RHHVF), which increased 272% in October with $76 million worth of shares trading. That represents a dramatic gain for a security with only $308 million in dollar volume year-to-date.

Nearly $200 million worth of shares of AngloAmerican plc (OTCQX: NGLOY) changed hands in October, a 265% monthly increase, as the company closed in on an untapped copper mine in Peru. Traders were excited enough to make Anglo the fourth most-active security on OTCQX in October, the most actively traded month it’s had all year.

French advertising giant Publicis Groupe S.A. (OTCQX: PUBGY) experienced a 144% increase in dollar volume, as the company warned of lower revenue for the year. German telecom company Deutsche Telekom AG (OTCQX: DTEGY) and Koninklijke Ahold Delhaize N.V. (OTCQX: ADRNY), the Dutch multinational retailer, experienced dollar volume increases of 126% and 113% respectively in October.

On the OTCQB Market, the largest gainer in dollar volume was Astea International Inc. (OTCQB: ATEA), which jumped after IFS, an enterprise applications vendor based in London, announced they were acquiring the company.
