Thai shares fall as political worries weigh

Thai shares (THD, TF, TTF) slide 1.2% in Bangkok as political turmoil intensifies.

Protestors have taken recently to surrounding Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s home and are now attempting to disrupt new elections.

Amid the strife, the baht hit its lowest level in nearly four years — Thai shares have seen foreign outflows "for nearly every session since November," Reuters notes.

Other Southeast Asian markets are quiet. Shares in Singapore (EWS, EWSS) are up 0.7%.
