SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia snaps winning streak, Thai shares continue fall

jueves 12 de junio de 2014 06:27 GYT

BANGKOK, June 12 (Reuters) - Indonesian shares retreated on
Thursday amid foreign-led selling in large caps after the
central bank maintained interest rates as expected, while Thai
index fell for the second session, with index heavyweight energy
and banking stocks leading the pack.
    Indonesia's central bank left its policy rate unchanged at
7.5 percent to support the economy as slowing exports pile
pressure on the current account. 
    Jakarta's composite index ended down 0.8 percent
after two days of gains. Shares of Telkom Indonesia 
dropped 3 percent and Bank Rakyat Indonesia was 1.2
percent lower.
    Foreign investors sold shares for the first time in three
days, Thomson Reuters data showed, offloading a net 441.7
billion rupiah ($37.5 million), after a combined net buying of
335.8 billion rupiah ($28.5 million) on Tuesday and Wednesday.
    Bangkok's SET index eased 0.5 percent. Shares of top
energy firm PTT shed 1.7 percent and Kasikornbank
 lost 1.5 percent. Telecom firm Advanced Info Service
 rose 0.4 percent, regaining some of recent losses.
    Stocks in Singapore and Malaysia were
little changed amid weaknesses in Asian stock markets.
    Vietnam closed up 0.6 percent as large-cap shares
lifted the market.
