Singapore home prices dropped for an 11th quarter, posting the longest losing streak on record, as the government holds steadfast on cooling measures it has rolled out since 2009, for fear of reigniting the market.

An index tracking private residential prices fell 0.4 percent in the three months ended June 30 from the previous quarter, capping the longest series of quarterly losses since 1975 when prices were first published, according to preliminary data from the Urban Redevelopment Authority Friday.
