SET defies expectation with slight rise


The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) Index closed at 1,566.36 on Monday, up 2.40 points or 0.15 per cent. The volume of total transactions was Bt76 billion with an index high of 1,571.74 and a low of 1,555.38.

In the morning session, a Krungsri Securities analyst expected the day’s index to fall to a support line between 1,555 and 1,560 after the US Federal Reserve declined to extend a post-pandemic rule that lowered the amount of capital banks had to hold.

"The index would also be under pressure from rising US bond yield and volatility in fund flows," said the analyst.

The 10 stocks with the highest trade value today were OR, BANPU, TTA, PRM, CPALL, PTT, AMANAH, CPF, KBANK and AOT.
