SE Asia Stocks - Thai index retreats, energy shares fall on oil prices
BANGKOK, Feb 19 (Reuters) - Thai shares edged lower on Thursday as investors sold energy stocks after global oil prices tumbled, with further foreign-selling dragging down the main index below a key 1,600 level.
The SET index closed down 0.2 percent at 1,599.96, reversing Wednesday's gains.
The top three energy firms by market value led among the losers. PTT slid 3 percent, PTT Exploration and Production fell 1.7 percent and PTT Global Chemical ended 2.1 percent lower.
Oil prices tumbled on Thursday after another big weekly build in U.S. crude inventories and a possible rise in Saudi output stoked worries about oversupply.
