– SET Index closed at 1,628.04 points, increased 4.20 points or 0.26% with a trading value of 73 billion baht. The analyst stated that the Thai stock market moved in both positive and negative territory in today’s session, even though the announcement of U.S. inflation rate was positive for the market, the Chinese economic data signalled for a slowdown, which affected Asian markets.
The speculation on mid and small-cap stocks and the reopening plays was able to buoy SET Index today, but the pressure on big-cap stocks such as DELTA, INTUCH, MAKRO and LHFG still pressured the market due to concerns over new freefloat measures.
In addition, the analyst expected SET Index to continue moving in positive direction tomorrow, giving a support level at 1,615-1,620 points and a resistance level at 1,643-1,660 points.
– Local Institutions and Proprietary Trading combined a net buy of 1,063 million baht to buoy SET Index by 4.20 points.
