Stock Market in Thailand
Thailand - Stock MarketFollowing a moderation in economic growth in the second quarter of the year, data suggests that economic momentum continued to ease slightly in the third quarter but stayed robust. Manufacturing output growth slowed markedly in August to the weakest reading in over a year. In the same month, Thailand recorded its second consecutive trade deficit and the fourth deficit for the year to August, as import growth continued outpacing export growth. Moreover, growth in tourist arrivals softened notably in July and August, largely due to a drop in arrivals from China following a boat accident. More positively, private consumption growth was robust in July and August, supported by higher consumer confidence and higher household incomes. In early October, the Central Bank announced tighter mortgage rules in order to cool the property market and avoid the escalation of risks.
