SE Asia Stocks-Most edge higher; Indonesia ends winning streak

BANGKOK, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Indonesian shares retreated on

Tuesday after three sessions of gains as foreign investors

continued selling, while most other stock markets in Southeast

Asia posted modest gains ahead of U.S. jobs data.

Jakarta's Composite Index fell 1.4 percent to

4,512.74, slightly off its intra-day low, led down by a 3.2

percent slide in state-controlled telecom firm PT Telekomunikasi

Indonesia, the second-biggest firm by market value.

Foreign investors offloaded Indonesian shares worth a net

$98 million on the day, after withdrawing $74 million over past

four sessions, Thomson Reuters data showed.

In Bangkok, market players bought shares in late trading

hours, sending the key SET index 0.6 percent higher.

Among actively traded, shares in Siam Commercial Bank

climbed almost 1 percent after Monday's 3.4 percent loss.

Thai bourse said foreign investors were net sellers of

$21.55 million on the day after their net purchase of $73

million in the past three straight sessions.

Trading volume on Thai stock market was relatively light

ahead of a public holiday on Wednesday. The market will resume

trading on Thursday.

Local brokers said domestic political issues would be a drag

on the market in the near term amid concerns that the

government's amnesty bill that aimed to annul legal cases

involving the coup in 2006 would lead to street protests.
