SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia extends loss; Thai shares rebound

Reuters

BANGKOK, Sept 25 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets

eased in light trade on Wednesday, wary of mixed signals on U.S.

monetary policy, with the Indonesian benchmark extending losses

for a fourth session amid a weak rupiah and falls in

banking shares.

Indonesia underperformed, with Jakarta's Composite Index

sliding 1.2 percent to 4,406.77, its lowest close in

almost two weeks, with foreign investors selling a net 572

billion rupiah ($49.87 million) worth of shares, Thomson Reuters

data showed.

Late buying by domestic institutions helped the index regain

some of the ground it lost earlier, traders said.

The Thai stock exchange also saw strong buying from domestic

investors late in the session, with the SET index

closing up 1.4 percent after a modest drop in morning trade.

Shares such as Kasikornbank and Siam Commercial

Bank staged a mild rebound from earlier falls.

"Domestic investors were more active, including the bout of

late buying," said Bangkok-based Teerawut Kanniphakul, a senior

analyst at CIMB Securities.
