SE Asia Stocks - Thai index bounces off two-week low; Indonesia weak

Thai shares rebounded on Monday, helped by short-covering in aviation and tourism-related stocks, while most others in Southeast Asia gained, in line with  Asian stock markets amid hopes for a Greek debt deal.

Bangkok's SET index   closed the day up 0.8 percent, recovering from a more than two-week closing low on Friday. About 7.7 billion shares changed hands, close to a full-day average over the past 30 trading days.

Investors bought back shares of hoteliers, sending Minor International    3.6 percent higher after Thailand said it had no new cases of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) after the report of its first case last week.

Airport operator Airports of Thailand   and airline shares such as Nok Airlines   led the rebound among aviation shares but the market remained wary of the international aviation agency's safety rating downgrade.
The Jakarta composite index   bucked the trend, ending down 0.5 percent, led by a 1 percent loss in Bank Rakyat Indonesia   and Telkom Indonesia , which fell 1.9 percent amid a downbeat economic forecast.

Indonesia's Finance Minister said the government is lowering its economic growth assumption for 2016 to 5.5-6 percent, compared with the previous target of 5.8-6.2 percent set last month.
