to its lowest close since mid-November.
Ayala Corp  AC.PS  fell 2.5 percent.
The Singapore index  .STI  was down 0.8 percent, weighed down by industrials and financial stocks.

Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Holdings Ltd  YAZG.SI  was the biggest loser on the index, slipping 4 percent to a one-week
closing low.
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  fell for a third day, closing down 0.8 percent, with losses driven by financial stocks such as Bank
Negara Indonesia (Persero)  which fell nearly 4 percent.
