SET up almost 0.5% on mixed day for Asian stocks

The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) Index closed at 1,550.59 on Tuesday, up 6.83 points or 0.44 per cent. Total transactions amounted to Bt99.22 billion with an index high of 1,554.96 and a low of 1,537.23.

In the morning session, a Krungsri Securities analyst expected the day’s index to fluctuate between 1,530 and 1,560 points despite US progress in the rollout of $1.9-trillion economic relief measures.

He said the index would come under pressure from the falling oil price and uncertainty over the rising US bond yield.

The 10 stocks with the highest trade value today were EA, SCGP, PTT, JKN, BDMS, SAWAD, KBANK, PTG, AOT and OR.
