Mr. Koraphat Vorachet, Capital Nomura Securities’ strategist, through “Kaohoon Jor Talad Program,” recommended investors to trade cautiously, especially for short-term investment, amid uncertainties of the omicron variant. Meanwhile, the selling of LTF at the beginning of next year could pressure the market and must be monitored closely.
In addition, the strategist said that the SET Index could edge higher today, but might need to be cautious at the end of session for a selloff, giving a support level at 1,638 points and a resistance level at 1,658-1,664 points.
