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.
