Thai baht is set to weaken following foreign capital outflows from the stock and bond markets. 

The Thai baht today is traded at Bt35.13 per US dollar, gaining nearly 2 per cent since the beginning of this year. 

Maybank Kim Eng Securities (Thailand) expects a reversal of the trend this month due to tightening by the US Federal Reserve. 

Net foreign outflows yesterday were tuned at Bt6 billion: Bt2.4 billion from stocks, Bt2.8 billion from short-term bonds and Bt0.8 billion from long-term bonds.

Foreigners were also net sellers of Thai stocks and bonds on Monday, with net-sell positions worth Bt3.2 billion.
