In the morning session, a Krungsri Securities analyst predicted the SET Index would fluctuate between 1,560 and 1,580 points despite positive sentiment over a rising oil price.

The index would be under pressure from the fresh outbreak of Covid-19 in European countries and volatility in fund flows, he predicted.

The 10 stocks with the highest trade value today were OR, GPSC, EA, ADVANC, SAWAD, TRUE, KBANK, PTT, SCC and DELTA.
