Thailand's SET index closed 0.6 percent weaker at its lowest close since Oct. 28, surrendering early gains, with Siam Commercial Bank and Bank of Ayudhya falling 0.8 percent and 1.6 percent respectively.
Foreign investors, however, bought a net $15.4 million worth of Thai shares on Wednesday, exchange data showed.
