BANGKOK, August 11, 2015 – The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) main index ended July at 1,440.12 with 4.3 percent drop from end-June, or down 3.8 percent from a year earlier, while foreign investors were sellers in the equity market worth a net THB 26.46 billion (approx. USD 780.6 million).
Investor sentiment was hit by fears that the Federal Reserve might raise interest rates sooner than expected, as well as the volatility of China’s stock market with the index losing more than 30 percent since end-June, spurring outflow from Asian markets. Likewise, the capital outflow of Thailand’ bourse was in the same manner as other Asian markets, especially Taiwan and South Korea.

The combined market capitalization of the SET’s main board and the Market for Alternative Investment (mai) was at THB 13.95 trillion (USD 411.5 billion) at the end of July. The average daily securities trading value of the SET’s main board and mai in July dropped 4.79 percent to THB 38.69 billion (USD 1.14 billion) from end of June, or a 26.7 percent drop from end of 2014.
