 Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended flat to weaker on Wednesday, with Malaysia's key stock index sliding to a near 15-month closing low amid foreign outflows and a fall in the ringgit due to concerns over the impact of lower crude prices.
Kuala Lumpur's composite index   fell 1.6 percent to 1,758.15, the lowest close since September 2013. The ringgit   lost as much as 0.5 percent to 3.4420 per dollar, its weakest since February 2010.

Foreign investors sold shares worth a net 201 million ringgit ($58.43 million), their sixth straight session of net selling, a Malaysian bourse statement said.

Among underperformers, Jakarta's composite index  ended 0.19 percent lower after a rally over the past five sessions when the falling oil price helped ease concerns about fiscal and trade deficit of Indonesia.
