In the morning session, Krungsri Securities forecast the index on Friday would fluctuate between 1,620 and 1,640 points amid uncertainty over whether the European Central Bank and US Federal Reserve would taper their quantitative easing programmes to curb rising inflation.

However, it said the index would rebound on news that the government may suspend the emergency decree on Friday, as well as mass buy-ups of shares that gained specific positive sentiment.

The 10 stocks with the highest trade value today were ADVANC, GULF, INTUCH, CPALL, AOT, TEAMG, KCE, EA, PTT and KBANK.
