Thai Stock Market Roundup on February 19, 2021

A short summary to inform investors of what had happened in the Thai stock market on February 19, 2021.

SET Index closed at 1,500.51 points, decreased 10.52 points or 0.70% with a trading value of 90.5 billion baht. The analyst stated that the decline in the Thai stock market was a rebasing after US bond yield continued to edge higher and could cause high inflation rate and would result in an interest rate up.

Nevertheless, the analyst had a positive outlook on the Thai stock market after gaining its foot above 1,500 points, which would be a strong base.

The analyst expected SET Index to move in sideway trends at the end of next week due to the MSCI rebalance that Thailand has been weighted down, giving a support level at 1,480 points and a resistance level at 1,530 points.
