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

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  .STI  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  UOBH.SI .  
Indonesia's Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  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  ASII.JK  and Bank Rakyat Indonesia  BBRI.JK .
Foreigners also bought Thai shares  .SETI  a net 2.9 billion baht ($81.41 million) and Malaysian stocks  .KLSE  a net 33 million ringgit ($7.8 million), while selling stocks in the Philippines  .PSI  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.
