Thai stocks nudge up amid signs of US recovery

The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) Index closed at 1,574.86 on Friday, up 3.82 points or 0.24 per cent. Total transactions amounted to Bt74 billion with an index high of 1,580.74 and a low of 1,566.89.

In the morning session, Krungsri Securities expected the day’s index to fluctuate between 1,560 and 1,580 despite positive sentiment from US figures showing jobless claims had fallen to their lowest level during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Krungsri Securities said the falling oil price amid uncertainty over a new wave of Covid-19 in Europe and India, plus volatility in fund flows, would pressure the index.

The 10 stocks with the highest trade value today were ACE, OR, BANPU, AOT, HANA, STA, KTC, DELTA, ADVANC and TRUE.
