07 Dec 2022 | Local News : Singapore


CAT Premium Change Quota No. of bids
A $88,503 ▼  $2,086   458 616
B $105,501 ▼  $8,380   427 568
C $81,501 ▼   $301    69 118
E $110,524 ▼  $3,485   149 266

In the first round of bidding for December, Certificate of Entitlement (COE) premiums slipped across all categories, with Cat B seeing a sizable $8,830 drop. The premium for Cat A COE meanwhile, saw a 2.3% slip this session down from the $90,589 high it reached last session.

The drop in premiums this session could be due to customers delaying their purchases in anticipation of greater promotional offers towards the end of the year. This could also explain the small dips in the total number of bids recieved for both Cat A and Cat B this session when compared to the last.
