The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) Index closed at 1,263.99 on Wednesday, down 9.44 points or 0.74 per cent. Total transactions amounted to Bt51 billion with an index high of 1,271.10 and a low of 1,257.84.
In the morning session, an analyst at Krungsri Securities expected the day’s index to fluctuate between 1,265 and 1,280 points as worries over domestic developments override progress in talks on fresh US economic stimulus measures.
“The student-led rally [in Bangkok on Wednesday] and uncertainty over commercial banks’ weak third-quarter performances will pressure the index,” he said.
The 10 stocks with the highest trade value today were KBANK, HANA, PTT, IVL, STGT, STA, CPF, NRF, CPALL and KCE.
