SE Asia Stocks-Down on global growth worries; foreign investors exit
Southeast Asian stock markets mostly fell on Wednesday with foreigners exiting the region's risky assets after economic data in China, the United States, and the euro zone pointed to slowing global economic growth.
Malaysia saw a net foreign outflow of $63.68 million, the Philippines $41.73 million and Indonesia $39.19 million.
Malaysia's main stock index .KLSE closed 1.2 percent weaker at a one-week low, led by financial stocks with Malayan Banking Bhd MBBM.KL losing 4 percent.
Fitch Ratings said Malaysia's deteriorating currency position could force the ratings agency to restore its negative outlook, adding to the negative sentiment.
The Jakarta Composite Index .JKSE fell 0.3 percent to a one-week low, while the main Manila index .PSI ended 0.2 percent weaker. Singapore .FTSTI closed down 0.2 percent.
An industry report on Tuesday showed that U.S. factory activity hit a more than two-year low in August, while an official survey showed China's manufacturing sector shrank at its fastest pace in at least three years last month.
"Weak manufacturing data out of China confirmed the economy is continuing to see tough times that will reverberate on the rest of the world," Singapore-based Net Research Asia said in a note.
Surveys of manufacturing activity in central Europe painted a mixed picture on Tuesday, with a strong Czech reading and further weakness in Hungary accompanied by a plunge in Poland that economists largely dismissed as a blip.
Bucking the trend, the main Thai index .SETI closed 0.7 percent up. Vietnam .VNI markets were closed for a holiday.
