Default Buying OTC shares

Hi guys,

I trade on Bank of Scotland's website. They don't allow trades in OTC securities.

For those of you that have bought the likes of BIPH and TTNP, whta broker did you use?

Excuse the ignorance, but one broker mentioned a W-8BEN form. In lamens terms, i believe this is to avoid paying tax in the US and UK. I haven't filled out one of these for my CTIC shares with BoS...is this automatic?

Hi aim2high, I'm in the same boat and missed out on a couple of these sweet tips. I'm looking to set up an account wih another UK broker that will trader on the TSE and OTC markets.

Thanks.

I called e-trade so they allow OTC trades to go through. Will be filling in the application for a US Brokerage account today!
