SE Asia Stocks - Indonesia at 5-week closing low on rupiah slide
Indonesia's key stock index touched a five-week closing low on Thursday amid a fall in the rupiah and foreign-led selling while most others in Southeast Asia retreated as energy-related stocks followed global oil prices lower.
Jakarta's composite index eased 0.7 percent to 5,095.82, the lowest close since April 30. Foreign-led selling hit a number of large-caps such as Bank Rakyat Indonesia and Astra International.
The index extended losses for a sixth straight day after the rupiah hit a fresh 17-year low in the wake of concerns over Indonesia's economic slowdown and its chronic current account deficit.
Indexes in Singapore , Malaysia and the Philippines finished lower. Vietnam ended up 0.2 percent in lower volume.
Malaysian palm oil futures, which fell on Thursday along with a drop in crude oil prices ahead of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries meeting on Friday, prompted selling in palm plantation stocks as well as oil and gas firms.
Top losers on regional indexes included Singapore's Golden Agri Resources , Malaysia's IOI Corporation and Thailand's PTT .
Thailand's SET index closed up 0.6 percent. Banks recouped early losses and climbed 1.1 percent, underpinned by a comment by the Finance Minister that there was no need to cut interest rates further.
