Continuous market

A secondary market in which trades are allowed to be arranged and executed at any time the market is open. Many continuous markets start their trading with a call market auction. During a pre-opening period, traders submit their orders for the market call. At the opening, any possible trades are arranged and then trading continues in the continuous trading session. Some continuous trading markets also close their trading with a call.
