SE Asia Stocks -Indonesia snaps rising streak as rupiah falls

Indonesia's key stock index snapped a two-day rising streak on Tuesday amid a fall in the rupiah and foreign-led selling while Southeast Asian stock markets were mixed a day before the U.S. Federal Reserve's decision on interest rates.
Bank Indonesia's governor Agus Martowardojo said pressure on the rupiah  IDR=  could disturb the country's economic stability as the currency hit a 17-year low after trade data pointed to weak growth in Southeast Asia's largest economy.  

The Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  shed nearly 1 percent after two straight days of gain to a more than one-week closing high on Monday.
Foreign investors turned net sellers, offloading a net 253 billion rupiah ($17.56 million) after their net purchase of 101 billion rupiah ($7.01 million) on Monday, the first in ten trading days, Thomson Reuters data showed.  
Stocks in Singapore  .FTSTI  fell for a third day and Thai stocks  .SETI  posted their fourth successive loss in line with Asian shares amid caution ahead of the Fed's rate decision.
The main Philippine index  .PSI  posted a modest 0.3 percent gain to a near two-week closing high, while Vietnam's key index  .VNI  ended a tad 0.2 percent higher.  
The Malaysian  .KLSE  index notched up a 0.5 percent gain after the government's stock market stimulus sent the index up more than 2 percent on Monday. Malaysia's stock market will be closed on Wednesday for a holiday.
