SE Asia Stocks-Mostly down on falling oil; Bangkok, Jakarta up

Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Monday as falling oil prices hurt investor sentiment after a producers' meeting in Doha failed to agree on a plan to curb the global glut.
The Thai stock index  .SETI  however bucked the trend due to retail buying after nearly a week of holidays, and the Jakarta Composite index  .JKSE  gained as investors picked beaten down bank stocks.
The attempt to reach a deal to stabilise output at January levels until October 2016 failed after Saudi Arabia demanded
that Iran join in. Some 18 oil exporting nations, including non-OPEC Russia, met in the Qatari capital for the talks.
Financial stocks led the fall in Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
Singapore's stock index  .STI  was down 0.2 percent after falling as much as 1.1 percent in early trade, Malaysia  .KLSE   closed 0.6 percent lower after weakening more than 1 percent, and Philippine  .PSI  shares closed down 1.1 percent.
The Thai stock market, which was shut since Tuesday for the Songkran festival, finished 1 percent firmer, its highest close since April 4 as energy shares recovered from early losses.
"There was some bullish sentiment after the long holiday and there was some good Chinese data release. Retail investors were bullish on that, but the gain was limited," said Teerada Charnyingyong, an analyst with Phillip Capital in Bangkok.
"We expect the index to move sideways with limited upside."
Bangkok saw $51.16 million in net foreign inflow while Indonesia witnessed $25.03 million in net foreign buying.
Indonesia's stock index  .JKSE  gained 0.9 percent, led by financials which fell on Friday after Bank Indonesia said the
seven-day reverse repo would be used as the new benchmark rate
effective Aug. 19.
