The SET Index is a Thai composite stock market index which is calculated from the prices of all common stocks (including unit trusts of property funds) on the main board of the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), except for stocks that have been suspended for more than one year. It is a market capitalization-weighted price index[2] which compares the current market value of all listed common shares with its value on the base date of April 30, 1975, which was when the Index was established and set at 100 points.

SET Index = ( Current Market Value x 100 ) / Base Market Value
