The Thai stock market bull, which ran without respite for a few years to hit a 19-year high last week, has lured many new retail investors, particularly mom-and-pop investors. 

In January and February alone, 40,000 new stock trading accounts were opened by local retail investors, bringing the total to 850,000.
