The baht opened at 30.12 to the US dollar on Tuesday, weakening from Monday's close of 30.12.

 

The Thai currency is likely to move between 30.05 and 30.25 on Tuesday, Krungthai market strategist Poon Panichpibool said.

 

Poon said that the financial markets were still in risk-off state, due to concerns about the Covid-19 crisis around the world. Also, the market is monitoring the US Treasury Department under Janet Yellen, the new Treasury secretary, he added.

 

Yellen’s opinion on the dollar could weaken the currency, as she wants it to move in line with the market mechanism.

 

The market strategist explained that if the US political situation stabilises, the Biden government would push stimulus measures and the market would return to a risk-on state again.

 

In Thailand, the baht’s main factor was fund flows from foreign investors, which depends on the Covid-19 situation in the country.

 

In the short term, he advised investors to keep an eye on stimulus packages issued by the government this week. Poon added that the packages could soon strengthen the baht.

Yeah I'm not into finance but how does a strong baht benefit Thailand.? 

 

Cheaper for the wealthy Thai elite to go shopping for offshore assets.  

 

They couldn't care less about Thai workers in factories or tourism.

Thai Baht seems to follow the Chinese Yuan.  For the past six months—they have both rocketed up—while western currencies have withered. So what are they hiding?

Nothing ,the Aus dollar today is the Highest since november 2018 So what's happening the Aus $ going up or the THB going Down.

I got one. Petrol from the pumps will be cheaper. 

And exchange rate will counteract that in some way.

Doesn't Thailand puts their own ethanol in processing oil into petrol. ?

The average Thai isn't concerned about the exchange rate, because they are mot exchanging.

I don't go by the US $        I get Paid in AUS $ -  And  Euro

The US$ is the dominant reserve currency. Generally:

  • AU$ up against US$ = AU$ up against THB
  • Euro up against US$ = Euro up against THB (although the Euro also being a reserve currency, not as linear a connection as people may pull out of the US$ and go into Euros)
