Dutch Auction
A public offering Auction structure in which the price of the offering is set after taking in all bids and determining the highest price at which the total offering can be sold. In this type of Auction, investors place a Bid for the amount they are willing to buy in terms of quantity and price.
    
It can also a type of Auction in which the price on an item is lowered until it gets a Bid. The first Bid made is the winning Bid and results in a sale, assuming that the price is above the reserve price. This is in contrast to typical options, where the price rises as bidders compete. This is also known as a "clock Auction" or an Open-outcry descending-price Auction.
    
This type of Auction is convenient when it is important to Auction goods quickly, since a sale never requires more than one Bid. Theoretically, the bidding strategy and results of this Auction are equivalent to those in a sealed first-price Auction.
