I'm wondering which tags I should use for questions about US over-the-counter (OTC) stocks for retail investors. The popular tags are: pink-sheets and penny-stocks. However, there are questions about OTC securities that don't necessarily fit into "pink-sheets" or "penny-stocks". Examples of such questions are:
- Questions about OTCBB
- Questions about OTCQX and OTCQB: pink-sheets seems to imply "OTC Pink" only, excluding OTCQX, OTCQB.
Do OTCQX, OTCQB questions belong under the "pink-sheets" tag?
- Suggestion: Edit the tag description to explicitly allow OTCQX, OTCQB, and OTC Pink questions under the more colloquial name of "pink sheets".
Do OTCBB questions belong under the "pink-sheets" tag?
- Suggestion: Create an "otcbb" tag.
Should there be a generic tag for US retail OTC markets?
- Some time ago, I created over-the-counter for my questions, but I don't think the name is proper. "over-the-counter" has many meanings, whereas what I wanted was a tag specifically about "OTCBB, OTCQX, OTCQB, and OTC Pink". The problem with "otc-stocks", "otc-securities", "otc-markets" is that they are not US-specific, and not specifically about "OTCBB, OTCQX, OTCQB, and OTC Pink". I thought of "us-retail-otc-securities", which is precise, but too long.
