SE Asia Stocks-Mixed after Fed holds rates; Malaysia falls

BANGKOK, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Stocks in Singapore and
Malaysia retreated, while most others in Southeast Asia were
little changed on Friday as investors weighed in the risk of the
next move by the U.S. Federal Reserve after an anticipated
decision to leave interest rates on hold.
    Asian shares rose on Friday on relief that the Fed held off
on raising rates, but gains were capped by renewed concerns
about the health of the global economy, in particular China.
 
    Singapore's Straits Times Index gave up early gains
and ended down 0.6 percent, falling 0.3 percent on the week.
    Malaysia's key index extended its loss on day to 0.7
percent, trimming a weekly gain to 4.1 percent, but is still the
best performing index in the region. The market had rallied
early in the week after the government's stock market stimulus.
 
    Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand posted net foreign
sales of 464 billion rupiah ($32.29 million), 526 million peso
($11.37 million) and 236.67 million baht ($6.66 million),
respectively.
    Performances on the week were mixed. The Philippines 
had a weekly gain of 3.2 percent. Thailand and Indonesia
 posted modest gains while Vietnam was slightly
lower.
