SE Asia Stocks-Singapore pulls back; Indonesia near week high on inflows

BANGKOK, Feb 17 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets retreated, in line with Asia on Wednesday, with
Singapore snapping a three-day rising streak after downbeat
exports data in January, but foreign inflows helped bring
Indonesian benchmark to a near one-week high.
    Losses in the region were led by Singapore, with the key
Straits Times Index dropping 1.2 percent after a more
than 4 percent rally in three sessions to Tuesday.
    Sentiment turned weak in part reflecting a
larger-than-expected fall of 9.9 percent in non oil domestic
exports in January while unfavourable earnings results weighed
on shares such as United Overseas Bank. 
    Indonesia's Jakarta composite index posted a modest
0.4 percent gain to 4,765.50, the highest close since Feb. 11.
    The overall stock market saw a net foreign buying worth 570
billion rupiah ($42.2 million), including a net purchase in
shares of Astra International and Bank Rakyat
Indonesia.
    Foreigners also bought Thai shares a net 2.9 billion
baht ($81.41 million) and Malaysian stocks a net 33
million ringgit ($7.8 million), while selling stocks in the
Philippines a net 629 million peso ($13.21 million).
    Asian shares slipped after two sessions of solid gains while
oil prices swung higher as the market reconsidered the chances
of a meaningful deal to restrict supply later in the year.
