In the morning session, Krungsri Securities forecast the index on Tuesday would fluctuate between 1,625 and 1,645 points amid positive sentiment from neighbouring stock markets and the oil price, plus a decline in domestic Covid-19 infections.

However, it predicted the index would face downward pressure from volatile foreign fund flows amid hints the US Federal Reserve will taper quantitative easing sooner than expected.

The 10 stocks with the highest trade value today were DELTA, PTT, INTUCH, KBANK, AOT, PTTEP, ADVANC, CPALL, EE and PTTGC.
