JAKARTA, Dec 8 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets traded lower on Tuesday, with the Thai index posting its
biggest one-day decline in two weeks on falling oil prices.
    Thailand's SET index posted the steepest fall in the
region with a 1.6 percent drop, led by oil firm PTT Pcl 
which fell 3.6 percent.
    The Thai stock market was shut on Monday for a public
    Global benchmark Brent crude futures dropped 5.4
percent to $40.66 per barrel on Monday, after the Organization
of the Petroleum Exporting Countries' (OPEC) policy meeting on
Friday ended without an agreement to lower production. 
    Indonesian stocks lost 1 percent with coal miner PT
Bukit Asam among the biggest decliners.
    Bucking the regional trend, the Vietnam index rose
1.9 percent.
