The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) Index closed at 1,369.42 on Thursday, up 4.83 points or 0.35 per cent. The volume of total transactions was Bt82 billion with an index high of 1,375.02 and a low of 1,362.41.

In the morning session, an analyst at Krungsri Securities said he expected the day’s index to fall despite Pfizer announcing its Covid-19 vaccine is 95 per cent effective and that it would seek a regulatory review within days.

“The US move to impose fresh restrictions to curtail the spread of Covid-19 after the number of cases rose sharply will pull down the SET,” he predicted.

The top 10 stocks with the highest trade value today were KBANK, ADVANC, PTTGC, IVL, AOT, PTT, MINT, CPF, SCB and GULF.

As of 4.30pm, the price of oil dropped by US$0.44 or 1.05 per cent to $41.38 per barrel, while gold dropped by $13 or 0.69 per cent, to $1,860.90 per ounce.
