SE Asia Stocks -Vietnam, Indonesia lead declines on week
Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Friday amid weaknesses in Asia, with the Indonesian benchmark hitting a more than 1-1/2 year low and the Vietnam index posting its third straight loss after the central bank devalued the dong.
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI ended down 1.83 percent at a three-month low, driven by declines in most blue chips.
It fell 5.6 percent on the week, making it the region's worst performer, amid share selling in the three sessions since Wednesday following the currency devaluation. ID:nL3N10U1R6
The Jakarta composite index .JKSE dropped 2.4 percent to 4,335.95, the lowest close since January 2014, sliding 5.4 percent on the week.
The Thai SET index .SETI declined 0.5 percent to its lowest close since March 2014. It fell 3.4 percent on the week.
Foreign investors sold a net 2.6 billion baht ($72.93 million) on Friday, taking their net selling since Tuesday to 18.8 billion baht ($527.35 million) amid concerns about an economic impact of deadly bomb blast in central Bangkok.
Key indexes of Singapore .FTSTI , Malaysia .KLSE and the Philippines .PSI all suffered losses on the week, partly as investors cut holdings in energy shares along with lower global oil prices.
Among the weak spots, shares of Singapore-listed China Fishery Group Ltd CNFG.SI dropped almost half after it said authorities were investigating an offence under the Securities and Futures Act Cap 289.
The Philippine stock market .PSI was closed on Friday for a national holiday.
