SE Asia Stocks - Malaysia at near 15-month low on outflows, weak oil prices

BANGKOK, Dec 3 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets ended flat to weaker on Wednesday, with Malaysia's key
stock index sliding to a near 15-month closing low amid foreign
outflows and a fall in the ringgit due to concerns over the
impact of lower crude prices.
    Kuala Lumpur's composite index fell 1.6 percent to
1,758.15, the lowest close since September 2013. The ringgit
 lost as much as 0.5 percent to 3.4420 per dollar, its
weakest since February 2010. 
    Malaysia is a net oil exporter and major palm oil producer.
    Foreign investors sold shares worth a net 201 million
ringgit ($58.43 million), their sixth straight session of net
selling, a Malaysian bourse statement said.
    Brent held above $70 a barrel on Wednesday, recovering
slightly from losses in the prior session as a turbulent market
struggled to find a price floor. 
    Among underperformers, Jakarta's composite index 
ended 0.19 percent lower after a rally over the past five
sessions when the falling oil price helped ease concerns about
fiscal and trade deficit of Indonesia.
