SE Asia Stocks-Thai stocks fall as investors await rate decision

Thai shares posted their biggest single-day loss in almost three months on Tuesday as a bout of late selling in energy stocks weighed, while banks
snapped a three-day rising streak ahead of the central bank's decision on interest rates.
 Other markets in Southeast Asia were range-bound amid weak sentiment in Asia  on concerns the U.S. Federal Reserve would increase interest rates by mid-year.
The key SET index   fell 1.8 percent, the biggest single-day fall since Dec. 15.
Shares of PTT Exploration and Production , the no. 2 energy firm by market value, shed 4.9 percent while third-ranked PTT Global Chemical   slipped 2.2 percent.
The banking subindex  declined 2.7 percent after a third straight gain on Monday to the highest in more than one week. Investors lowered risks on a possible cut in policy rates by the Bank of Thailand, dealers said.
Prime Minister General Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Tuesday Thailand should not rush to cut interest rates, backing market expectations that the central bank would leave policy unchanged at Wednesday's meeting.
