SET rebounds more than 1% as Asian stocks climb


The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) Index closed at 1,570.99 on Tuesday, up 21.15 points or 1.36 per cent. Transactions totalled 75.22 billion baht with an index high of 1,571.82 and a low of 1,555.88.

In the morning session, Krungsri Securities forecast the SET Index on Tuesday would fluctuate between 1,540 and 1,560 points despite the rising oil price and hopes of more economic relief measures from the Thai government.

However, the rise in domestic Covid-19 cases and volatility in foreign fund flows would pressure the index, it added.

The 10 stocks with the highest trade value today were PTTGC, CPF, BANPU, GUNKUL, PTT, KCE, CBG, KBANK, CPALL and HANA.

Japan's Nikkei Index closed at 28,718.24, up 149.22 points or 0.52 per cent.
