SE Asia Stocks-Mixed; Thai index turns higher after cenbank maintains rate

Southeast Asian stock markets were mixed on Wednesday, with Thai shares rebounding after the central bank maintained the key interest rate as expected while the Philippine index led regional losses as investors sought
safe-heaven assets amid a slump in oil prices.  
Bangkok's SET index  .SETI  ended the day up 0.5 percent at 1,291.77, bouncing off an intraday low of 1,275.41.
The Bank of Thailand's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) unanimously voted to leave the one-day repurchase rate
 THCBIR=ECI  at 1.50 percent, as widely expected, allowing the government spending to help revive flagging economy.
Interest rate sensitive banks  .SETB  regained most early lost ground, down 0.1 percent after an almost two percent drop, partly reflecting concerns of a possibility of a rate cut.
The Philippine main index  .PSI  slipped 1.8 percent to the lowest close since Jan. 27, while Singapore  .STI  and Malaysia  .KLSE  both finished about one percent lower.
Indonesia  .JKSE  eked out modest gains.
It had earlier dropped 0.9 percent amid a fall in the rupiah  IDI=ID  as investors sold riskier assets globally. Foreigners
sold shares worth a net 168 billion rupiah ($12.22 million), Thomson Reuters data showed.
Foreign investors also offloaded shares in Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand a net 100.4 million ringgit ($23.80
million), 94 million peso ($1.96 million) and 1.2 billion baht($33.49 million), respectively, data showed.
