The Thai stock market surged from the beginning of the week, supported by foreign investor purchases, hopes towards peace talks between Russia and Ukraine on March 29-30, the BOT’s MPC meeting outcomes that came out as market expected, and a decision by the relevant Thai authorities to further ease restrictions on economic activity at the end of the week. However, the SET dropped briefly during the week in line with other stock markets after the talks between Russia-Ukraine ended with no concrete results. Given this, the ongoing conflict continued unabated.
On Friday, April 1, 2022, the SET closed at 1,701.31 points, up 1.46% over-week. The average daily trading value was THB74,425.00 million, up 4.99% over-week. The mai closed at 672.17 points, up 6.87% over-week.
