April 22 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets
ended lower on Wednesday, dragged down by financials as optimism
about China's easy monetary policy evaporated, with Thailand
hitting its lowest in nearly two weeks on poor earnings results
from banks.
    Thai shares fell 1.1 percent and closed at their
lowest since April 10, led by financials.
    Krung Thai Bank fell 6.1 percent a day after the
country's second-largest lender reported a lower-than-expected
first-quarter net profit on increased loan loss provisions.
 
    Energy shares also declined amid falling oil prices after
Saudi Arabia ended its military campaign in Yemen.
    PTT, Thailand's top oil firm, ended lower 2.3
percent.
    Bangkok, however, saw a net foreign inflow of $27.81
million.  
    Indonesia closed lower 0.4 percent after hitting a
more than one-week high in the previous session, while Malaysia
 lost 0.4 percent after touching a more than seven-month
high earlier in the session. Singapore fell 0.4 percent
to its lowest close since April 13.
    The Philippine index ended lower 0.2 percent, marking
its fourth straight session of losses. It fell as much as 0.8
percent intraday, led by a 1.7 percent fall in Bank of the
Philippine Islands and 1.6 percent loss in BDO Unibank
.
    Malaysia and Philippines witnessed net outflows of $8.66
million and $6.20 million, respectively.
