SE Asia Stocks-Most down on China data; Indonesia off 7-week high

jueves 20 de noviembre de 2014 06:51 GYT

HANOI, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets on
Thursday ended lower as investors cut their risk exposure amid
worries on data that signalled a further loss of momentum in
China's economy, with Indonesia leading the decliners.
    The China flash HSBC/Markit manufacturing purchasing
managers' index showed factory output contracted in the world's
second-biggest economy for the first time in six months.
    Indonesian shares slipped 0.67 percent, off its seven-week
closing high hit in the previous session, as shipping company PT
Trada Maritime Tbk plummeted 24.9 percent after the
country's stock exchange lifted its trading suspension since
June 6. 
    Outflows also took the shine off Singaporean shares 
after hitting a two-month high on Wednesday, and Malaysia
 dipped 0.12 percent on foreign net selling of 48.43
million ringgit ($14.39 million), according to exchange data.
    Thailand's SET Index also headed south with a 0.56
percent fall, while offshore buying into Philippine shares
 cushioned a sharp drop in the country's oldest
conglomerate Ayala Corp following an overnight top-up
replacement at discounted price.
