German term or phrase: Auktionsaufrufphase
this is the opening phase of an auction on an energy exchange. It takes place before the pricing phase. Is it literally a "call phase/period"?

Explanation:
Looks like you're right on the money. Both Schäfer, Hyperbook Wirtschaftsenglisch, and Zahn, Bank- und Börsenwesen, give "Call" for Aufruf.

Aufruf m
(Bö) call

Der grosse Eichborn lists a number of entries for Auktion, but not Auktionsaufruf. Your solution of call phase would seem to be just right.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help...
