BANGKOK, Jan 30 (Reuters) - The Philippine main index

sessions of losses amid foreign inflows into selected large
caps.

    It was up 6.35 percent on the month, matching the gain in

Investments Corp and Ayala Land, stock
exchange data showed.
    Jakarta's composite index gained 0.5 percent on the
day and 1.19 percent on the month, rising for a third month. The
market brought in a net 550.97 billion rupiah ($43.50 million)
worth of inflows into shares such as Astra International
. 
    Stocks in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand
 and Vietnam ended the day lower but all ended the
month higher.
