An analyst at Krungsri Securities expected the index to rebound between 1,310 and 1,315 points before falling in response to a rise in the US manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) in August.

However, he warned investors to beware of market volatility because foreign investors’ funds continued to flow out.

The SET Index closed at 1,305.57 yesterday, down 5.09 points, or 0.39 per cent. Total transactions amounted to Bt48.63 billion, with an index high of 1,316.68 points and a low of 1,301.014.
The index fell into negative territory following news that Finance Minister Predee Daochai had tendered his resignation less than a month after taking the post, citing health problems.
