The SET surged over-week in line with other stock markets after investors were less concerns about the Omicron variant of COVID-19, as they hoped that the Omicron may not cause severe illness. During this week, banking stocks were further boosted by news regarding a winning bid for retail assets while finance stocks were supported by another round of public hearing on hire-purchase contracts. However, the SET dropped slightly on the last trading day before long holidays as investors went into risk-off mode.
