SET market report for June 2019
BANGKOK, July 4, 2019 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) Index at end-June 
increased 6.8 percent from the previous month, marking the best performer in
Asia, and 10.6 percent from end-2018 to 1,730.34 points. The average daily
trading value of SET and Market for Alternative Investment (mai) in June was THB
60.53 billion (approx. USD 1.95 billion), up 3.1 percent from the preceding
month. Foreign investors were the net buyers of Thai shares for the third
straight month in June, gaining the highest monthly net inflows in the region.
SET Senior Executive Vice President Soraphol Tulayasathien said that SET Index 
rose to the highest among Asian bourses with the most value of foreign net
inflows in June, boosted by the prospect of continuity in Thailand's economic
policies following a clearer picture of local politics, coupled with a string of
positive external factors including US-China's ease of trade tensions and the
US Federal Reserve (Fed)'s gradual move in monetary policy.
