Sawasdee - February 28, 2019

Supported by fund flows and oil price

Market outlook
The SET was able to stand at 1655-1660, which is firm support. If price does not fall below support, the trend is upward. Foreign funds flowed into TFEX, as they were net LONG in SET50 index futures and single-stock futures. Recovery in oil price will support Energy today. We expect market to rise further with resistance at 1672. If price breaks 1672, sentiment will be clearly positive. The next resistance is at 1678.
 
Market strategy
Selective buy in Energy from recovery in oil price and GRM: PTT, PTTEP, TOP and IRPC. Commerce: GLOBAL, top potential growth of the sector and BJC, 4Q18 earnings beat consensus. Hold Media with earnings recovery in 1Q19: MAJOR and RS Today's technical picks: JWD and PTTEP
