Thai Hot Stocks-Index falls as anti-govt protests continue

 BANGKOK, March 15 (Reuters) - Thailand's benchmark stock index .SETI was down 0.1 percent at 732.69 at 0305 GMT on Monday, snapping a three-day winning streak as investors waited to see how mass anti-government protests evolved.
 Thousands of protesters started to move on Monday towards a military base in Bangkok where Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva has his crisis headquarters, putting pressure on him to call fresh elections. [ID:nSGE62E02X]
 "For the rest of the day, I feel the market will be range-bound because investors want to monitor the protests," said Pichai Lertsupongkij, an analyst at Thanachart Securites, expecting the index to move between 723 and 740.
 Stocks on the move included:
 The national carrier was down 0.8 percent at 24.1 baht, extending its fall on Friday after a plan to sell up to 1 billion new shares to the public and shareholders, including the Finance Ministry, in an offer worth roughly $720 million at current market price. [ID:nSGE62B08K]
