BANGKOK, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Indonesia's key stock index
snapped a two-day rising streak on Tuesday amid a fall in the
rupiah and foreign-led selling while Southeast Asian stock
markets were mixed a day before the U.S. Federal Reserve's
decision on interest rates.
    Bank Indonesia's governor Agus Martowardojo said pressure on
the rupiah could disturb the country's economic stability
as the currency hit a 17-year low after trade data pointed to
weak growth in Southeast Asia's largest economy. 
    The Jakarta composite index shed nearly 1 percent
after two straight days of gain to a more than one-week closing
high on Monday.
    Foreign investors turned net sellers, offloading a net 253
billion rupiah ($17.56 million) after their net purchase of 101
billion rupiah ($7.01 million) on Monday, the first in ten
trading days, Thomson Reuters data showed. 
    Stocks in Singapore fell for a third day and Thai
stocks posted their fourth successive loss in line with
Asian shares amid caution ahead of the Fed's rate decision.
 
    The main Philippine index posted a modest 0.3 percent
gain to a near two-week closing high, while Vietnam's key index
 ended a tad 0.2 percent higher. 
    The Malaysian index notched up a 0.5 percent gain
after the government's stock market stimulus sent the index up
more than 2 percent on Monday. Malaysia's stock market will be
closed on Wednesday for a holiday.
