SET and TFEX to extend temporary rules until no later than Sept 30

BANGKOK, June 25, 2020 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) will prolong its 
recent trading rule amendments, which are short-selling and ceiling & floor,
until September 30, 2020, or before, (from June 30 previously) due to continued
market volatility as well as uncertain global economy and the COVID-19 pandemic
situation. Likewise, Thailand Futures Exchange's (TFEX) daily price limit rule
will be extended to the same effective end date. The period extension has
already undergone the hearing from stakeholders and has been approved by the
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The short-selling rule has lately been tightened by allowing investors to trade 
only at the price higher than the last trading price (uptick), while ceiling &
floor rule has been adjusted to +/- 15% from +/- 30%, in order to mitigate
market disturbance caused by COVID-19 crisis.

Meanwhile, TFEX has recently announced the amended rule of daily price limit of 
SET50 Index Futures, SET50 Index Options, Sector Futures, and Single Stock
Futures to +/- 15% from +/- 30% of the latest settlement price to be in line
with underlying assets.
