OTC Notes/Swaps Cost?

Does anyone know what thei pricing is like to get exposure to an index that is not avaialble in an ETF?

If you went to a brokerage and requested an OTC note or swap - does anyone know the pricing on something like that?

Just curious.

If you can find such a thing from brokers, you should be wary about commissions and spreads. Don’t trade anything OTC where you cannot break down the pricing exactly.

Obviously…

…the pricing is never good (outside of potential tax advantages) - presumably you’d only want this to gain exposure on something you can’t execute on.  Is that the case, given it sounds like you’re talking about a basket of US equities?
