Thailand’s stock market is expected to rebound again on Thursday


(RTTNews) – The Thai stock market on Wednesday marked the end of a five-day winning streak in which it had climbed nearly 30 points or 1.9%. Thailand’s stock market now sits just above the 1,615 plateau, although it is eyeing further support on Thursday.

Global forecasts for Asian markets are optimistic thanks to easing inflation fears. European and US markets were solidly higher and Asian exchanges are expected to open similarly.

The SET ended slightly lower on Wednesday as losses in financials and technology stocks were mitigated by support from energy companies.

Wall Street’s advance is broadly positive as major averages opened firmly higher on Wednesday and remained that way throughout the day, ending at three-month closing highs.

The Dow Jones jumped 535.10 points or 1.63% to end at 33,309.51, while the NASDAQ jumped 360.88 points or 2.89% to end at 12,854.80 and the S&P 500 jumped 87.77 points or 2.13% to close at 4,210.24.

The rally on Wall Street came after the Labor Department released a report showing US consumer prices fell unexpectedly flat in July.

Weaker-than-expected inflation data has led to speculation that the Federal Reserve may slow the pace of interest rate hikes at its September meeting.

Crude oil prices rose on Wednesday, lifted by data showing a bigger-than-expected drop in U.S. gasoline inventories last week. The weak dollar and increased demand for gasoline also contributed to the surge in oil prices. West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures ended up $1.43 or 1.6% at $91.93 a barrel.
