Kaohoon Morning Brief – 21 December 2023

Tisco Securities (Tisco) expected Thailand’s SET Index to move narrowly around 1,400 points in the same direction as regional markets, pressured by the negative session in Wall Street last night due to a profit taking after making several new highs, while investors were starting to slow down before the long holiday.

Still, Tisco expected the Thai stock market to receive a positive sentiment from funding in TESG.
