SE Asia Stocks-Most fall in line with broader Asia; Indonesia down 2 pct
* Philippines snaps 5-session losing streak
* Indonesia drops for fourth straight session
* Singapore declines over 1 pct
By Susan Mathew
March 7 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Wednesday, with Indonesia shedding 2 percent in its sharpest
drop in nearly four months, tracking weakness in broader Asia.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 0.6 percent as fears resurfaced that U.S. President Donald Trump will proceed with protectionist tariffs and risk a trade war after a strong White House advocate for free trade resigned.
Indonesian shares .JKSE declined for a fourth straight session with financial and consumer stocks leading the drop.
Astra International ASII.JK fell 2.8 percent, while clove cigarette maker Hanjaya Mandala Sampoerna HMSP.JK dropped 4.3
percent as its annual profit declined.
Bank Central Asia BBCA.JK finished 0.8 percent lower ahead of its full-year results on Thursday.
An index of the nation's 45 most liquid stocks dropped 2.3 percent, its lowest close in over two months.
Singapore shares .STI dropped over 1 percent with the city-state's top three lenders among the biggest drags.
Malaysian stocks .KLSE fell for a third session in four with aluminium trader Press Metal Aluminium PMET.KL and
financial services provider CIMB Group Holdings CIMB.KL being the biggest drags.
Meanwhile, the central bank left its key interest rate unchanged as expected, after hiking it for the first time in over three years in January, as easing inflationary pressures and solid growth gave it room to hold off further tightening for now. An ING analyst expects the next rate hike in the third quarter of 2018.
Thai shares .SETI extended falls into a sixth session, the longest losing streak since May 2017, with energy and material
stocks being the biggest drags. PTT PTT.BK dropped 2.2 percent, while PTT Global Chemical PTTGC.BK declined 4.4
Philippine shares .PSI snapped a five-session losing streak and closed 0.5 percent higher on some buying right before
