The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) closed at 1,581.05 on Wednesday (January 15), for a decrease of 5.85 points and 0.37 per cent over the previous day.

Daily trade volume was Bt65.4 billion with an index high of 1,587.77 and a low of 1,575.98.

A stock analyst at Krungsri Securities had predicted fluctuations in the SET Index following reports that the United States would reduce import duties on Chinese goods, leaving investors sceptical about future trade between those countries.
