The Stock Exchange of Thailand index broke through the 1,400-point barrier on the last trading day of the year, closing up 35.75% for 2012 and making it the world's fifth best-performing bourse in that period. 

The index reached 1,402.86 points yesterday, but SET president Charamporn Jotikasthira said the market was extended past its full value.

At the close of the trading session, the SET index stood at 1,391.93 points, down 5.26 points or 0.4% in trading worth 34.6 billion baht, a record high for the past 16 years.
