BANGKOK, Oct 7 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets edged lower after a range-bound session on Tuesday, with
the Thai index ending at a near two-month low amid losses in
large caps but Indonesia bucked the trend, rising for a second
day amid technical-led buying.
    Bangkok's SET index finished down 0.2 percent at
1,539.39, its lowest close since Aug. 8, extending Monday's 1.7
percent drop.
    Among those actively traded, shares of airport operator
Airports of Thailand fell almost 1 percent to the
lowest level since Aug. 21 after weak tourism related data.
    The number of tourists arriving in Thailand in September
dropped a preliminary 7.0 percent from a year earlier after a
fall of 11.9 percent in August, showing the country's big
industry continues to feel the pinch of a long political crisis.
 
    Stock exchange data showed inflows into Indonesian large
caps such as Telkom Indonesia and Astra International
 helped bring Jakarta's composite index 0.7
percent higher.
    "The decline last week was quite steep. Investors are
returning since some of the blue chip stocks are trading at
relatively cheaper prices," said Jakarta-based Muhamad Alfatih,
an analyst with Samuel Sekuritas Indonesia.
    Others in the region appeared to be tracking Asian markets.
    MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan
 was up 0.2 percent in late afternoon trade,
after wobbling between positive and negative territory as it
took its cues from a choppy, losing session on Wall Street
overnight.
