In the morning session, Krungsri Securities forecast Wednesday’s SET index would fluctuate between 1,550 and 1,570 points as investors awaited the outcome of a US Federal Reserve meeting.

The Fed is expected to maintain the interest rate at 0.25 per cent and continue its quantitative easing policy.

“Meanwhile, uncertainty over higher Covid-19 cases in Thailand and volatility in foreign fund flows would pressure the index,” Krungsri Securities predicted.

The 10 stocks with the highest trade value today were ASW, KBANK, SCC, SCGP, GUNKUL, IVL, TISCO, AOT, PTTGC and PTL.
