modest loss on Tuesday, helped by late bargain-hunting in PTT
 shares, while most other markets in Southeast Asia fell
in line with weaknesses in broader Asia and global markets.
    The Thai SET index finished down 0.4 percent at
1,477.58, coming off a three-week low hit in the early hours of
    PTT jumped 2.5 percent, closing at the day's high of 323
baht. It earlier fell to a near three-week low as softening
global oil prices dented the earnings outlook of the country's
biggest energy firm. 
    Brokers said the rebound also came after an energy ministry

    Selling in energy shares sent most markets lower, with
stocks in Singapore and Malaysia both hitting
their lowest close since Dec. 19, while Indonesia 
finished at a near two-week closing low.
    The Malaysian bourse reported net foreign outflows worth 225
million ringgit ($63.3 million), while the Thai stock exchange
posted a net 3.97 billion baht ($120.6 million) in foreign
