BANGKOK, Oct 9 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets
rose on Friday, notching up strong gains on the week, as dovish
minutes from the U.S. Federal Reserve's September meeting
further pushed up expectations of a delay in rate lift-off by
the Fed. 
    The Jakarta composite index jumped 2.2 percent,
taking its gain on the week to 9.1 percent, the biggest since
April 2009. The overall stock market recorded net inflows
through the week worth a combined 2.3 trillion rupiah ($171.51
million).
    The rupiah jumped more than 4 percent to enjoy the
best week in more than 14 years on capital inflows. 
    Singapore's key Straits Times Index climbed 1.8
percent on the day and 7.4 percent on the week.
    Shares of Noble Group Ltd surged 16 percent, the
best performer on the benchmark, as the Fed's comments boosted
global commodities. 
    Key stock indexes in Malaysia, Thailand, the
Philippines and Vietnam all gained more than 4
percent on the week, reflecting rallying energy shares and the
U.S. interest rate outlook.
