Thai Bourse Allows Short Selling On SET100 Index Stocks from Jan 1

The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) will allow securities in the SET100 Index to be sold short, effective from January 1, 2011, onwards. This should provide investors with a better tool to manage their risks from stock price movement.

Previously, short-selling could be done only with the securities in the SET50 Index.

Short-selling has become a widely-used, effective tool for managing risks in portfolio investment, SET Chief Marketing Officer Pakorn Peetathawatchai noted.

Enlarging the scope of securities in the SET100 Index to be available for short-selling should thus provide investors more investment alternatives and risk management tools.

Securities in the SET50 Index, exchange-traded fund (ETF) units, and ETF-linked funds will remain available for short-selling as ever.
