SE Asia Stocks-Retreat on oil price concerns, mixed fund flows

Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Tuesday as a slide in global oil prices dented investors' sentiment, with shares in Indonesia and the
Philippines snapping rising streaks amid mixed fund flows in the region. 
The Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  slipped 0.8 percent after notching up about 5 percent gains in the last seven
sessions. Foreign investors cashed out a net 198 billion rupiah ($14.47 million).
Indonesia has outperformed its Asian peers over the past six months on hopes of an earnings boost from President Joko Widodo's long-promised reforms and lower borrowing costs. But foreign investors remained cautious.  
The Philippine index  .PSI  was down 0.9 percent, its first loss in five sessions. Malaysia  .KLSE  retreated from a more than three-week closing high on Friday on resuming trade after a market holiday.  
Stocks in Thailand  .SETI  and Vietnam  .VNI  extended losses for a second day.  

Singapore  .STI  also posted a second straight decline ahead of January factory activity data  SGPMI=ECI  expected later in the day.  
Net inflows in the region were led by Malaysia with 223 million ringgit ($53.03 million), while Thailand posted a net
outflow for a second day, worth 632 million baht ($17.69 million), data showed.
Oil prices continued to worry investors. Singapore's Golden Agri-Resources  GAGR.SI , Malaysia's Sapurakencana Petroleum
SKPE.KL  and Thailand's PTT  PTT.BK  were among the region's top losers.
