Where can I download a complete list of US OTC stocks? https://www.nasdaqtrader.com/trader.aspx?id=symboldirdefs only has lists of exchange-listed stocks, not OTC stocks. There is FINRA's OTC Symbol Directory and OTC Markets' Company Directory, but these lists are not available for download.

Unfortunately when FINRA shut down OTC BB in Nov 2021, the symbol list that was previously produced daily on ftp.otcbb.com was also discontinued.

OTC Markets offer a daily security master file: https://www.otcmarkets.com/market-data/reference-and-pricing-data/security-data for a fee.

An alternative is to use a data vendor that has complete currently-listed OTC coverage.

Also note that there are typically hundreds of corporate actions per month relating to OTC securities, particularly symbol changes, which must be tracked to maintain a consistent database. This is a significant task.

Full disclosure: Norgate Data provides OTC data, and I am a co-owner of Norgate Data.
