SE Asia Stocks-Malaysia hits one-week low; Thai banks fall on Sahaviriya loans
Southeast Asian stock markets ended mostly flat to weaker on Monday, with the Malaysian benchmark sliding to a more than one-week low, in line with a weak ringgit, while some Thai banks fell on concerns over bad loans related to an ailing steelmaker.
Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur composite index .KLSE dropped 1.8 percent to the lowest close since Sept. 11. Top two losers were Genting Malaysia GENM.KL , down 7.6 percent, followed by IOI Corp IOIB.KL , down 5.5 percent.
Malaysia's ringgit MYR=MY led regional slides on Monday, with some traders citing a Wall Street Journal report that the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating allegations of money-laundering at troubled 1Malaysia Development Bhd adding to negative sentiment.
The Thai SET index .SETI rose a modest 0.2 percent after moving rangebound, with shares of food firm Charoen Pokphand Foods CPF.BK leading among gainers.
Siam Commercial Bank SCB.BK and Krung Thai Bank KTB.BK each declined more than 2 percent, while Tisco Financial Group TISCO.BK eased 0.7 percent due to concerns of impact of provisions to loans to steel firm Sahaviriya Steel Industries SSI.BK .
"The Thai market overall followed the direction of regional markets. Selling pressure was in bank creditors of SSI since early in the day," said broker CIMB Securities.
Sentiment in Asia and global markets was weak as the uncertainty created by last week's latest postponement to the Federal Reserve's rate hike and continued jitters over China and
emerging markets dampened sentiment.
