BANGKOK May 21 Thai stocks edged slightly
higher in early trade on Wednesday after weakness at the opening
bell that followed falls the previous day following the
imposition of martial law.
The SET index opened down 0.1 percent after a 1.1
percent drop on Tuesday, when foreign investors offloaded a net
8.3 billion baht ($255 million) of stock, their biggest sales in
almost six months.
At 0318 GMT it was up 0.14 percent.
Domestic institutions and retail investors bought shares on
Tuesday. Some locals are taking the view that the army's move
could help the country resolve the prolonged political crisis.
