BANGKOK, March 18, 2013 – The Stock Exchange of Thailand’s (SET) securities trading volume in February soared 80 percent from a year earlier, supported by optimism on Thailand’s economic growth after its fourth-quarter GDP was significantly higher than a year earlier and earnings of Thai listed companies improved, although concerns of U.S. and European economies remained putting pressure on the investment mood.

The SET main index ended February at 1,541.58 points, up 10.75 percent from the end of last year. However, foreign investors reversed themselves to become net sellers of shares worth USD 574 million in February after being net buyers for three consecutive months.

Combined average daily trading volume of SET and Market for Alternative Investment (mai) was at THB 62.05 billion (approx. USD 2.07 billion), or up 79.90 percent from a year earlier, while daily trading volume of derivatives rose 98 percent from a year ago at 67,777 contracts per day.
