SE Asia Stocks-Singapore leads fall on China stock market rout

miércoles 8 de julio de 2015 07:04 GYT

BANGKOK, July 8 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets
slid on Wednesday as tumbling Chinese shares spurred late
selling, with weaknesses in Chinese-linked stocks sending the
Singapore benchmark to its lowest close in more than a week.
    Singapore's key Straits Times Index fell 1.7
percent to the lowest close since June 29 and its biggest
single-day loss since Dec. 16, 2014. Shares of Hongkong Land
Holdings dropped 4.7 percent and CapitaLand 
shed 4 percent, among top losers on the guage.
    Stocks in Malaysia hit a more than one-week low and
the Philippines touched a one-month low, both posting 
net foreign outflows worth 374 million ringgit ($98.3 million)
and 888 million peso ($19.6 million), respectively.
    Thai stocks eased 0.9 percent to a near seven-month
closing low, Indonesia extended its slide for a third
day while Vietnam posted the first fall in five trading
    Selloffs in Chinese markets hit global equities on Wednesday
while caution prevailed over the Greek debt uncertainty.
    The Thai central bank said a fall in Chinese stocks weighed
on market sentiment while most Thai invesments in Chinese assets
were in deposits and debentures, while the Indonesian central
bank said the Greek crisis has had no significant impact on
Indonesian financial markets.
