Owners of high-end vehicles, however, feel differently with fewer expressing the belief that values are rising.</strong></li><li>The largest increase in January was for expert sentiment, which is up considerably since the Monterey auctions in August. <strong>Over the last six months, expert sentiment has increased more than any other metric besides correlated instruments</strong>. Increases over the last two months in particular have been due to <strong>optimism about the upcoming Scottsdale auctions.</strong></li><li>With the latest release of pricing in the <strong>Hagerty Price Guide, values on average are down slightly, with the most pronounced decrease experienced by Blue Chip collector cars.</strong></li><li>December's reported rating was revised from 67.16 to 67.17 due to newly released inflation numbers.</li></ul></p>
