SE Asia Stocks-Mostly down; Indonesia recovers on govt stimulus

Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended weaker on Tuesday as investors looked for cues on global economic health from key economic data later this week, while Indonesian shares recovered strongly on fresh government stimulus measures.  
The Jakarta Composite Index  .JKSE  fell more than 2 percent to a two-year low earlier in the session, but recovered strongly to close 1.4 percent higher.  
Harry Su, head of research at Bahana Securities in Jakarta, said expectation over a second stimulus package helped stocks recover.  
Indonesia on Tuesday announced its second package of economic stimulus measures in three weeks, increasing efforts to lure investment, prop up the battered rupiah and revive growth in Southeast Asia's largest economy.
