Thai Stock Market Roundup on September 17, 2020

A short summary to inform investors of what had happened in the Thai stock market on September 17, 2020.

SET Index closed at 1,284.40 points, decreased 9.08 points or 0.70% with a trading value of 46 billion baht. The analyst stated that the Thai stock market halted its rally after a two-day rise, but the decline in today’s session was better than the regional markets that closed around 1% lower, while Dow Jones Future also slipped prior to the opening as well.

The decline came after the Fed expected to maintain its policy rate until 2023, which was longer than the market had anticipated. Meanwhile, the political issue is still the main factor to drive or halt the market.

The analyst expected the uncertainties in political issues would continue to hold the market down, giving a support level at 1,274 points and a resistance level at 1,287 points.
