Indeed, exactly what I was looking for. Many many thanks Peter.

To clarify, the 3 letter ticker stocks are the 'primary' stock holdings of the companies listed on their own exchange, and should in theory be the 'safer' of the two options (in terms of liquidity and were you to have access to both).

As I'm in Europe it's actually these stocks that I generally have access to. However as I read a fair bit of US analysis it's the 4/5 letter ones that're being referred to which was what was causing the confusion.

If I like the underlying company in terms from an investment/ speculation perspective, I'm better off buying the ones listed on their own exchanges sounds like anyway. The brokers here in Europe can request for OTC's to be added, but I'll not bother then.

Thanks again
Taimur
