Thai bourse expects DW on indices to be launched this year
Bangkok, January 16, 2014 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has recently joined hands with brokers to continuously educate investors on using derivative warrants (DW), and expects that DWs on SET Index series can be launched by brokers this year. As many as 761 DWs were launched in 2013, with an average daily trading value of THB 1,000 million (approx. USD 33 million), increasing 254 percent from the previous year.
There were three new DW issuers in 2013 plus one new issuer this year, resulting in 13 DW issuers in total, said SET Executive Vice President Kesara Manchusree.

To make DWs more diversified and attractive for investors, the bourse has added more underlying assets, covering stocks in the SET100 Index, exchange-traded funds with underlying SET-listed securities and indices in the SET Index series such as the SET50, SET100, and SET High Dividend Indices.  DW on indices are expected to be available for trading this year.
"Most of the DWs launched in 2013 had underlying stocks in the SET50 Index. In  addition, DWs with the right to sell (put warrant) gained more popularity due to the volatile market in the second half of 2013. The trading value of put warrants accounted for 26 percent of total DW trading value, compared with only 11 percent in 2012. As of the end of 2013, there were 500 DWs available for trading, of which 393 were DWs with the right to buy (call warrants) and 107 were put warrants. The average daily trading value of DW last year was THB 1,000 million (approx. USD 33 million), or 2.08 percent of the total securities trading value in the SET, comparing with 2012, when average daily trading value of DW was THB 282 million (approx. USD 9.4 million), or 0.91 percent of the total securities trading value in the Thai bourse," Kesara added.
The bourse is strongly committed to promoting the launch of financial  instruments to support capital market growth and better serve various investors'
needs. The bourse has well-planned, promising programs with DW brokers to continuously increase the investors' expertise in DWs, including fundamental trading and managing trading risk.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
