SE Asia Stocks -Indonesia lead losses after Fed hint on rate hike

The benchmark Indonesian share index dropped 3 percent while most others in Southeast Asia fell more than 1 percent on Thursday, a day after the U.S. Federal Reserve hinted a rate hike was possible by year-end, fuelling more foreign selling in  emerging stockmarkets.
