Baht Closes At 33.66 Baht/Dollar, The Strongest In The Last 25 Months

Currency and capital market strategist at the Krung Thai Bank, Jitipol Puksamatanan said that the Thai baht closed trading at 33.66 baht to the dollar on Monday, the strongest in the last 25 months.

He has attributed the strengthening of the Thai baht against the dollar to the United States selling off large amounts of their dollars and an inflow of foreign capital.

Mr Puksamatanan said that the rapid strengthening of the Baht could be linked to the weakening US dollar which is not expected to bounce back.

He said that the baht is likely to strengthen further next week and might rise as high as 33.50 baht to the dollar if fund flow continues to come into the country at the same rate.

  1. A strong baht only means exports including rice and manufactured items are more expensive shipped into the USA. That is not good for Thailand as the importers will just buy the same goods somewhere else. It also means foreigners are less likely to purchase condominiums or invest in businesses in Thailand.
