SE Asia Stocks-Weaker amid global growth worry
BANGKOK, Oct 9 (Reuters) - Stocks in Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines edged lower on Tuesday amid broad-based sell-off in regional large caps such as Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co
and Siam Cement Pcl as concerns about global growth dented investor sentiment.
Singapore's Straits Times Index
fell for a second session, ending at a one-week closing low of 3,065.91 while Thailand's SET index
lost nearly 1 percent to the lowest close in almost two weeks. The Philippines' main index
extended its loss for a third session, falling 0.7 percent to a near one-week closing low of 5,394.90.
Late selling erased most of morning gains in Malaysia
, both ending the day slightly higher. Warning about the global growth from the IMF weighed on stock markets globally.
Foreign investors bought 211 million ringgit ($68.79 million) worth of Malaysian shares, while local retail and domestic institutions were net sellers, stock exchange data showed.
