Indonesian shares dropped 1 percent in choppy trade on Wednesday as a weaker rupiah spurred late selling, while Thai benchmark index slid to 1,500-level as market players locked quick gains in banking and telecom shares.
There have been concerns about exchange rate uncertainties following the recent rupiah depreciation, said Jemmy Paul, fund manager at Sucorinvest Asset Management in Jakarta.
"The market is nervous about the rupiah weakness ... Temporary selling in stocks is still expected until the rupiah finds its level of balance which should be around 10,500 to 11,000 per dollar," Jemmy said.
Vietnamese shares ended down 2 percent, extending Tuesday's fall, on concerns about high inflation, while Thai stocks edged down 0.8 percent, reversing a 2.1 percent gain in the previous session.
Stocks in Singapore and Malaysia posted modest gains while the Philippine index ended up 0.9 percent amid caution over the global outlook after a weak reading of China July flash HSBC Manufacturing PMI.
