SE Asia Stocks-Edgy as Russia sanctions unnerve investors
Most Southeast Asian stock markets were largely tepid on Thursday, as concerns over U.S. President Donald Trump signing the Russia sanctions bill kept investors on edge.
Trump grudgingly signed into law new sanctions against Russia on Wednesday, a move Moscow said amounted to a full-scale trade war and an end to hopes for better ties with the Trump administration.
"I think it (Trump signing off new sanctions against Russia) is a clear indication that geopolitical risk might escalate,"

World stock markets fell, led by a tumble in tech shares as investors locked in recent gains after Wall Street's recent
The overall profit-taking streak trickled down to Southeast Asia as well, with Indonesia .JKSE falling the most in the
region. The index closed 0.8 percent down.
Losses were led by financials and technology stocks, with Bank Central Asia Tbk PT BBCA.JK and Indoritel Makmur Internasional Tbk PT DNET.JK ending 0.9 percent and 1.7 percent down, respectively.
Southeast Asia's largest economy is expected to report second quarter GDP growth data on August 7.
Expectations regarding the GDP growth are low given the fact that there are growing concerns over the purchasing power of Indonesians and the consumption recovery story, said Shim.
An index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks .JKLQ45 declined 0.8 percent.
Singapore shares .STI ended 0.2 percent lower, as oil and gas, and telecom stocks took a hit.
Rig builder Sembcorp Industries SCIL.SI lost 0.6 percent, while StarHub Ltd STAR.SI lost 1.1 percent after reporting a 21 percent drop in quarterly net profit on Wednesday.
Vietnam shares .VNI closed up 0.3 percent on the back of gains in financials and consumer stocks.
Philippines .PSI snapped three sessions of losses to end marginally up, while Malaysia .KLSE ended up for a third
