In the second round of bidding for October, Certificate of Entitlement (COE) premiums climbed across all categories, with Cat B COE scaling a total of $14,144.

The recently announced drop in COE quota for the upcoming quarter may have compelled more car buyers to make their purchases this week. This could also explain the rise in the total number of bidders for both Cat B and Cat E this session compared to the last.
