Thai stock market to close on Thursday

BANGKOK (BestGrowthStock) – Thailand’s Stock Exchange will be closed on Thursday as political violence escalates, Finance Minister Korn Chatikavanij told reporters on Wednesday.

Thailand’s benchmark stock index (.SETI: ) ended up 0.71 percent at 765.54 on Wednesday, closing early because of violence in the center of Bangkok.

Analysts said some investors bought on news the military had moved in to disperse anti-government “red shirt” protesters who have paralyzed a central commercial district for over six weeks.
