What are the differences between on exchange and off-exchange trading?

On exchange trading is the trading of commodities and contracts that are listed on an exchange. Off-exchange trading, also known as over-the-counter trading is the trading of commodities, contracts or other financial instruments that are not listed on exchange. Off-exchange trading can occur electronically or over the phone. Some foreign currency (forex) contracts are traded off-exchange.
