An analyst at Krungsri Securities expected the index to fluctuate between 1,205 and 1,220 due to uncertainty over rising Covid-19 cases in US, the rollout of US economic stimulus measures and falling oil price.
However, he said the index would rebound from Thailand Parliament's extraordinary session to ease political tensions.
As an investment strategy, he recommended that investors buy TU, STGT, STA, CBG, SCC, IVL, COM7, SYNEX, ASIAN, DELTA, HANA, SVI and TVO, whose third-quarter performance is expected to improve.
