The Baht edged higher, while the SET rose in line with other stock markets and on hopes towards rapid vaccination rollouts


The SET moved within a tight range early in the week before surging during the rest of the week on purchases of energy, technology and financial stocks, boosted by Thailand’s better-than-expected April export data, THB500 billion loan decree to cope with COVID-19 and hopes towards additional choices for COVID-19 vaccines. Bullish foreign stock markets, supported by better-than-expected US labor market data, also boosted the Thai bourse. However, foreign investors remained in a net selling position while MSCI rebalance that weighted down Thai stocks came into effect this week.
