SE Asia Stocks-Most weak on foreign selling; Fed rate hike concerns weigh

Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Friday, weighed down by foreign selling after U.S. Federal Reserve officials' comments on a likely December interest rate hike dented sentiment.
Singapore's Straits Times Index  .STI  dropped 1.1 percent to its lowest close since Oct. 6, dragged down by financial and industrial shares.  
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp  OCBC.SI  fell 0.9 percent while Noble Group  NOBG.SI , Asia's biggest commodity trader,  plunged 11 percent after its third-quarter net profit fell to $24.7 million from $153.9 million a year earlier.   
Malaysia suffered a net foreign outflow of $73.57 million, Thailand witnessed $69.02 million net foreign selling, and Philippines saw $24.77 million outflow.  
U.S. Fed officials lined up behind a likely December interest rate hike with one key central banker saying the risk of waiting too long was now roughly in balance with the risk of moving too soon to normalize rates after seven years near zero.   
Other Fed policymakers argued that inflation should rebound, allowing the Fed to soon lift rates from near zero though probably proceed gradually after that.
Investor sentiment was also dented due to a plunge in commodity prices to multi-year lows on worries that slower global growth may worsen a supply glut.
Malaysia  .KLSE  fell 0.3 percent to a near six-week low and Thailand  .SETI  edged down 0.1 percent to its lowest close since Oct. 6.  
Bucking the trend, the Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  closed 0.2 percent firmer, while Vietnam  .VNI  recovered to close 0.9 percent higher.  
 Market                   Current     Prev Close     Pct Move
