In the morning session, a Krungsri Securities analyst expected the SET to fall to between 1,455 and 1,475 points due to uncertainty over rising US Treasury bond yields and the falling oil price, together with the outflow of foreign funds due to the weakening baht.

However, the index would rebound after the approval of US economic relief worth US$1.9 trillion, he said.

The 10 stocks with the highest trade value today were STA, OR, STGT, KBANK, CPALL, PTT, SAWAD, AOT, ICHI and PTTEP.
