SE Asia Stocks-Weak; Indonesia pares early gains

Reuters

BANGKOK, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets

fell on Thursday as investors were cautious due to the budget

battle in the United States, with the Indonesian benchmark index

reversing earlier gains as short-term players locked quick gains

in banking shares.

Late selling in stocks of large caps such as Bank Mandiri

and Bank Negara Indonesia weighed on the

broader market, with the benchmark index closing a tad

lower at 4,405.89.

Thai stocks ended down 0.8 percent after rising 1.4

percent in the previous session.

Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines

extended their losses so far on the week to the lowest

close in more than one week.

Foreign investors sold Indonesian shares worth a net 573.9

billion rupiah ($49.97 million) and Malaysian shares a net 77

million ringgit ($23.89 million), Thomson Reuters and stock

exchange data showed.
