In the first round of bidding for January, COE prices only rose slightly for Cat A while premiums for Cat B and Cat E saw a small drop.

Uncertainty over how the new VES rebates would affect the market could have prompted those looking to secure quotas to bid at prices close to those of the last bidding session.
