 Shares in Indonesia's largest thermal coal miner PT Bumi Resources TBk   rose as much as 6.6 percent in early trade after having fallen 10 percent in the last four sessions. It closed up 2.2 percent after the market positively responded to the company's plan to pay its bond coupon rate.
The Singapore index   surrendered early gains to close 0.1 percent lower after the city-state's economic data showed it had avoided shrinking in the second quarter of 2014, though weakness in the services sector is set to weigh on growth in the second half of the year.
