BANGKOK, July 13 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets
rose in thin volume on Monday amid short-covering after euro
zone leaders clinched a deal with Greece and Indonesia extended
gains for a second day on hopes the central bank will keep
policy rate steady.
    The Jakarta composite index ended up 0.7 percent,
building on Friday's 0.4 percent gain. Banking shares were among
the actively traded, led by Bank Mandiri and Bank
Central Asia.
    Indonesia's central bank is expected to keep its benchmark
interest rate unchanged at 7.5 percent at a policy
meeting on Tuesday as it guards against inflation and
potentially more weakness in the rupiah.
    European markets gave a weary cheer on Monday as euro zone
leaders emerged from-all night talks in Brussels with a deal to
keep Greece afloat and part of the euro currency union.
    Indonesia's stock exchange saw trading volume fell to 73
percent of its 30-day average. Volumes on most other major
exchanges in the region were only about two-thirds the average.
    Singapore's index hit a near one-week closing high.
Indexes in Thailand and the Philippines both rose
for a third straight day. Vietnam touched a 10-month
closing high, while Malaysia ended slightly higher.
