SE Asia Stocks-Down tracking Asia, bank woes; Indonesia at 1-wk low
Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Friday as concerns about the health of European
banks and the global economic outlook hit Asia, with risk-averse investors cautious ahead of a raft of economic data in the region next week.
Indonesia underperformed in the region, with the Jakarta composite index .JKSE ending down 1.3 percent at 4,714.39, the lowest close in more than one week.
It dropped 1.8 percent on the week, in line with the poor showing by regional peers in a holiday-thinned trading week and amid a shift of money to safe-heaven assets.
Weak balance of payments data in 2015 further dented market sentiment in Jakarta while investors also awaited trade data in January, due on Monday.
The Thai SET index .SETI was down 0.3 percent on the day, and 2.3 percent on the week. Bangkok awaited fourth-quarter GDP data next week, with a Thomson Reuters poll forecasting a growth of 2.7 percent on an annual basis.
Singapore's Straits Times Index .STI ended the day a tad higher, trimming its losses on the week to 3.2 percent. On the
week, Malaysia .KLSE fell about 1 percent and the Philippines .PSI lost 1.6 percent.
Vietnam, which was closed all week for the Lunar New Year holiday, will reopen on Monday.
