A system in which buyers enter 

Competitive

 bidders and sellers enter 

Competitive

 offers simultaneously, as opposed to the 

Over-the-Counter

 market, where trades are negotiated. Examples are the 

NYSE

 and the 

AMEX

. A double 

Auction market

 can also be carried out by open 

Outcry

, in which buyers and sellers 

Call

 out prices that they are willing to 

Buy

 and 

Sell

 at, and a match is made if a buyer and seller 

Call

 out the same price. Double auction markets usually feature a large number of buyers and sellers, and thus participants tend to incur lower 

Transaction

 costs than in the 

Over-the-Counter

 market. also called auction market.
