Jakarta's composite index   closed down 0.2 percent, with interest rate sensitive stocks such as Bank Rakyat Indonesia  down 0.2 percent after a 1.2 percent rise in early trade.
Indonesia's central bank held its key interest rate steady on Thursday, as expected, but questions loom about how much the now-contained inflation rate might increase if the new president raises fuel prices to cut costly subsidies.  
The Philippine main index   eased 0.2 percent, weighed down by a 1.2 percent drop in shares of Philippine Long Distance Telephone , the country's biggest firm by market value.
The Philippine central bank raised both its policy rate and the rate on its special deposit accounts by 25 basis points on Thursday, its most aggressive move against persistent inflation amid buoyant economic growth.  
 Nine of 11 economists polled by Reuters had expected the central bank to tighten monetary conditions on Thursday.
Brokers in Bangkok said investors awaited U.S. data, including the U.S. Federal Reserve's statement middle of next week, to guage the direction of foreign fund flows.

Among bright spots, shares of True Corporation Pcl , 18-percent owned by China Mobile Ltd  <0941.HK> , finished up 4.2 percent, after the telecoms operator said it expected to make a net profit in the fourth quarter of this year after years of losses.
