SET Index closed at 1,482.98 points, increased 1.23 points or 0.08% with a trading value of 77.8 billion baht. The analyst stated that the buying pressure in the afternoon buoyed SET Index to close higher, while investors are waiting to see the progress of the U.S. economic stimulus plan, which was expected to come out in a few days, thus, investors were cautiously trading stocks, resulting in a quiet session in Thailand as well.
