The KLCI dropped 15.22 points to 1791.74, amid losses at Wall Street last Friday as better-than-forecast jobs data fueled speculation that the US Federal Reserve is moving closer to raising interest rates. The performance of our benchmark index was bogged down by selling pressure in heavyweight counters such as Sapurakencana and Genting.

Vietnam index nears 1-mth low, sentiment hurt

 Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   fell 0.93 percent to close at its lowest since Feb. 13 on Monday, as possible selling by some foreign funds impeded sentiment among domestic investors.
The certificate prices of Market Vectors Vietnam   and db x-trackers FTSE Vietnam , two major exchange-traded funds that trade Vietnamese blue-chips, are below their net assets value, based on Reuters data, hinting potential offloads.
Foreign investors last Friday turned net sellers of Vietnamese equities from their 15 straight net buying sessions, which prompted domestic investors to reduce risk appetite and dragged volume to 99 million shares, below the five-day average.
Nearly 60 percent of equities lost ground on Monday, led by PetroVietNam Gas  , Vietnam's top firm by value, with a 1.89 percent fall, while Hanoi-based Vietcombank, the country's biggest lender by capitalisation, lost 2.41 percent.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index   at the close

SE Asia Stocks - Fall; Indonesia near 2-week low on weak rupiah

For every 1 percent rupiah depreciation against the dollar, the market's earnings per share growth will fall by 0.8 percent, broker Bahana Securities said in a report.
 In Bangkok, the SET index   finished the day down 0.6 percent, reversing the gain on Friday. Losers included shares of Kasikornbank  <KBANK.BK>  and Krung Thai Bank .
The Bank of Thailand's Monetary Policy Committes will meet on Wednesday to review a policy interest rate.
