In the morning session, Krungsri Securities predicted the index would fluctuate between 1,510 and 1,530 points after lockdown measures were extended to more provinces to curb the spread of Covid-19, impacting the economy and foreign fund flows.

"However, mass buy-ups of shares that have gained positive sentiment would help boost the index," Krungsri Securities said.
