Thai Stock Market Roundup on 18 November 2021

SET Index closed at 1,651.02 points, increased 6.42 points or 0.39% with a trading value of 76.5 billion baht. The analyst stated that the Thai stock market edged higher as foreign markets were already priced in the sentiment of rising inflation and the fund inflow in the regional markets for the fifth straight day.

However, the overall outlook is still uncertain, which led investors to focus on stocks with unique positive factors, including laggard and 4Q recovery potential stocks. Strong Thai baht also helps mitigate negativity from a selloff in the energy sector.
