Spot USD/THB has softened as onshore markets re-opened in Thailand. The pair last trades -0.020 at THB31.340. The 50-DMA at THB31.181 provides the initial bearish target and a break here would open up May 10 low of THB31.048, a key near-term support. Bulls look for a break above May 18 high of THB31.510, before taking aim at Apr 12 high of THB31.575.
