SE Asia Stocks - Indonesia leads regional losses on China selloff

Southeast Asian stock markets fell on Monday as a selloff in Chinese shares dented Asian stocks, with the Indonesian index marking its worst drop in a month while Thai shares shed early gains amid mixed economic data for October.  
Jakarta's composite index  .JKSE  ended the day down 2.5 percent, its biggest single-day fall since Oct. 29. It posted a modest 0.2 percent loss in November.
Banking and consumer shares were among the most actively traded. Bank Central Asia  BBCA.JK  fell 5.9 percent while Indofood Sukses Makmur  INDF.JK  slid 9.7 percent.
 The Thai SET index  .SETI  eased 0.2 percent on the day and shed 2.5 percent on the month.
Data from the Bank of Thailand showed private investment rose in October, indicating the economy is making a little headway though exports and domestic demand remained weak.

The spectre of higher U.S. interest rates and a potential easing stance by the European Central Bank at its meeting due on Thursday would keep investors in the region cautious, according
to brokers in Bangkok and in the region.
