Thai Baht Outlook
Thailand’s central bank unveiled on Friday new measures related to the baht THB=TH in a bid to help balance capital flows after a rapid appreciation in the currency, an assistant governor said.
The new rules will allow Thais to freely hold and transfer foreign currency deposits and to directly invest more in overseas securities, Vachira Arromdee told a briefing.
The baht traded at 30.31 per U.S. dollar at 0331 GMT after hitting a more than 10-month high of 30.13 on Monday.
On Thursday, the governor said the baht had risen too fast and undermined the country’s fragile economic recovery.

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.
One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 57.4469. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 3 period(s) ago.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 30.34. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 2 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -48. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 5 period(s) ago.
The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a buy 0 period(s) ago.
