SE Asia Stocks-Fall; Singapore hits 1-wk low on expansionary budget

Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Thursday as a stronger dollar curbed risk appetite, with the Singapore index hitting a one-week low after the country adopted an expansionary stance in the national budget to counter lacklustre growth.  
Singapore's key Straits Times Index  .STI  slipped 1.2 percent to its lowest close since March 16, taking losses on the
week to about 2 percent. The city-state's bourse will be closed on Friday for the Easter weekend holiday.
The Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  was down 0.6 percent on the day and 1.2 percent lower on the week, ahead of a holiday on Friday.
Investors were mostly cautious ahead of public holidays in the region. Shares in Malaysia  .KLSE  fell, its second loss in seven days; Thai stocks  .SETI  ended a five-day rising streak and Vietnam  .VNI  reversed gains of the day before.
The Philippine stock market  .PSI  will reopen on Monday, after a holiday-shortened trading week that ended Wednesday.
A fall in oil prices prompted selling in energy-related stocks across exchanges, led by a 4.4-percent drop in
Indonesia's coal firm Adaro Energy  ADRO.JK  and a 4-percent decline in Thailand's PTT Exploration and Production  PTTEP.BK .
