BANGKOK, July 27 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets fell more than 1 percent on Monday as selloffs in China
and Asian shares prompted investors to cut risk holdings, with
the Thai benchmark hitting a near 14-month low after June
exports tumbled more than expected.
    The Thai SET index fell 1.8 percent to 1,412.55, its
lowest close since May 29, 2014, led down by a 1.6 percent drop
in shares of mobile phone firm Advanced Info Service
, the most actively traded.
    Data released by the Commerce Ministry showed the June
exports fall was the biggest drop since late 2011, indicating
the country's weaker currency is not yet helping fire up the
country's traditional long-stalled growth engine. 
    Jakarta's composite index ended the day down 1.8
percent at the lowest close since April 2014, while the
Philippines snapped a four-day rising streak, retreating
1.5 percent.
    Singapore fell for a fifth day to a two-week
closing low and Malaysia posted a fourth straight day of
    MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan
 fell 1.7 percent amid worries over China and
investors braced for a Federal Reserve meeting that might take
another small step toward lifting U.S. interest
