CAT Premium Change Quota No. of bids
A $47,010 ▲ $2,009  836 1,240
B $59,501 ▲ $3,401  819 1,107

In the second round of bidding for July, Certificate of Entitlement (COE) prices rose across all private car categories. 

More buyers could have been persuaded to make their these last two weeks, in anticipation of further price increases expected in the coming quarter as a result of the recently announced drop in COE supply which we foresaw as early as June. This can be seen in the increase in bids for Cat A and Cat B when compared against the last bidding round.
