SET Index stays level on bad day for other Asian stocks indices


The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) Index closed at 1,580.01 on Wednesday, down 0.03 points or 0.00 per cent. The volume of total transactions was THB80.53 billion with an index high of 1,584.57 and a low of 1,575.56.

In the morning session, Krungsri Securities said the index on Wednesday would fall to between 1,565 and 1,570 points, in line with the drop in regional indices due to uncertainty over rising Covid-19 cases worldwide, especially in India and South Africa.

It said negative sentiment over the pandemic had caused the oil price to fall and would impact energy-related shares.

“The index would also be under pressure from volatility in foreign fund flows,” Krungsri Securities said.

 

The 10 stocks with the highest trade value today were ADVANC, KBANK, INTUCH, DELTA, SCC, GULF, BBL, SAWAD, PTT and COM7.

Other Asian indices were down with one exception:

Japan’s Nikkei Index closed at 28,508.55, down 591.83 points or 2.03 per cent.

China’s Shang Hai SE Composite Index closed at 3,472.93, down 0.013 points or 0.00037 per cent, while the Shenzhen SE Component Index closed at 14,151.15, up 49.24 points or 0.35 per cent.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index closed at 28,621.92, down 513.81 points or 1.76 per cent.

South Korea's KOSPI closed at 3,171.66, down 49.04 points or 1.52 per cent.
