He predicted that in the short term the baht would weaken due to several factors, including the Covid-19 crisis in Thailand and other countries.
Poon explained that the crisis has forced people to hold onto their safe-haven assets – the dollar, for example.
He predicted the baht throughout the week would come under pressure from foreign currency purchases by numerous companies as they move to pay dividends.
Poon also predicted that the baht would move in a wide range as importers have bought the US currency as the baht strengthened to 31.15 per dollar.
