BOT explaining that the new 3-year saving bonds with the annual interest rate of 3.58125% wich can be readjusted every 3 months is just an alternative to the 3-year Government bonds issued by Ministry of Finace with the fixed rate of 3.75% per annum. Furthemore, it is the way to encourage more savings by purchasing bonds withthe average rate of 3.5% a year or better instead of short term deposits which has the average rate of 1.9% a year.
Those whose bonds will be mature on 5 Septmber 2011 will also become the targeted customers who want to continue purchasing bonds using the money form mature bonds ....
TFEX has to raise the deposits for Gold Future - from 62700 Baht per contract to 74100 Baht per contract and from 12540 Baht per Mini contract to 14820 Baht per mini contract due to price fluctuations
Note: 1 Contract = 50 Baht of gold bar and 1 Mini contract = 10 Baht of gold bar
Despite of the downard trend of gold, gthe demandsfor gold still so high that they need to wait for at least 3 days to get the real gold out of the gold shop despite of hiliday halts on gold tradings.
