Market Roundup 4 March 2024

Thailand’s SET Index closed at 1,362.57 points, decreased 4.83 points or 0.35% with a trading value of 40.36 billion baht. The analyst stated that the Thai stock market traded narrowly, which contradicted the rise in the regional markets, as there were no positive factors to support the market. The Thai market also awaited the announcement of inflation figures coming this week, as well as non-farm payrolls and the unemployment rate from the US coming this Friday.

The analyst expected the market to trade sideways tomorrow, while awaiting for positive factors.
