BANGKOK, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets
rose on Monday amid strength in Asian markets, with Singapore's
key stock index touching a near two-month high as investors
braced for the central bank's possible monetary policy easing
this week.
    The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) is expected to
ease monetary policy on Wednesday to support an economy that may
have slipped into a recession in the third quarter for the first
time since the global financial crisis. 
    Singapore's key Straits Times Index ended the day
higher 1.1 percent at 3,032.11, the highest since Aug. 19, in
strong trading volume which was 1.6 times the full-day average
over past 30 days.
    The Jakarta composite index advanced for a sixth
session, up 0.9 percent at a more than two-month high, while
Vietnam extended gains to a near two-month high.
    Stocks in Malaysia, Thailand and the
Philippines all rose further after a strong run last week
as foreign investors continued buying, stock exchange data
showed.
    Shares got off to a strong start to the week in Asia and
Europe on Monday while the dollar dipped towards three-week
lows, with investors unconvinced the U.S. Federal Reserve would
raise interest rates later this year.
