SE Asia Stocks-Malaysia snaps falling trend ahead of rate decision

 Southeast Asian stock markets were mixed on Thursday, with the Malaysian benchmark ending three days of losses ahead of the central bank's decision to hold rates steady, while Indonesian large caps retreated amid selling led by foreign investors.
Malaysia's central bank held its overnight policy rate  MYINTR=ECI  at 3.25 percent on Thursday, as expected, keeping policy steady while the Southeast Asian nation and its markets were rocked by corruption allegations against Prime Minister Najib Razak. 
All 15 economists in a Reuters poll had estimated Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) would leave the rate unchanged.  
The key Kuala Lumpur composite index  .KLSE  rose 0.3 percent, with rate-sensitive banking shares showing mixed performance. Maybank  MBBM.KL  rose 0.4 percent while Public Bank  PUBM.KL  fell nearly 1 percent.

In Indonesia, the Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  fell 0.7 percent to 4,838.28, its lowest close since June 15.     

The country saw net foreign outflows of 483 billion rupiah ($36.23 million), with Bank Mandiri  BMRI.JK , Telekomunikasi Indonesia  TLKM.JK  and Unilever Indonesia  UNVR.JK  among the losers.
Trading volume was light to moderate in the region, at  0.8-1.1 times a 30-day avarage as jitters persisted over instability in China and Greece.
Major sharemarkets posted net foreign selling, including Malaysia's 148 million ringgit ($39 million) and the Philippines' 1.16 billion peso ($25.67 million).
World stocks snapped a five-day losing streak on Thursday, as Beijing halted a rout in Chinese stocks and the Federal Reserve signalled it might be too soon to raise U.S. interest rates.  
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  slipped 0.17 percent as falls in most blue-chips were cushioned by gains in several big-caps.
