I have noticed a decrease in market makers in the OTCBB market, but possibly some of this has to do with the correction in the market affecting the less healthy market markers and of course regulatory bodies such as FINRA have been doing a very good job at removing market makers from the market who do not belong.

With this in mind, going public on the OTCBB has less options for persons to file with as well, the market maker is a key participant in filing the 15c211.

If you are looking to go public, or are looking at options, contact us at info@otclistings.com and we will direct you to some o the best resources on the OTC market.
