SE Asia Stocks-Rise on oil price rebound; Malaysia up with ringgit

Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Thursday, with the Malaysian index hitting a seven-week high amid gains in the ringgit in reaction to rebounding oil prices while Indonesian shares posted modest gains after the central bank cut rates as expected.

Gains in crude oil helped improve risk sentiment in Asia, sending MSCI's broadest index of Asia Pacific shares outside
Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  1.8 percent higher.   
Kuala Lumpur composite index  .KLSE  climbed nearly 1 percent to 1,680.02, the highest close since Dec. 31.
The Malaysian ringgit  MYR=MY  advanced more than 1 percent as a surge in oil prices and better-than-expected fourth-quarter economic data eased concerns about Southeast Asia's third-largest economy.  
Malaysia saw relatively moderate trading volumes which were close to a 30-day average, similar to regional peers. Brokers said uncertainties about the direction of global oil prices kept some investors cautious.
Jakarta composite index  .JKSE  closed the day up 0.3 percent after the Indonesian central bank cut its benchmark
interest rate for the second time this year, as expected, in a bid to help speed up sluggish economic growth. 
Singapore  .STI  reversed Wednesday's loss and rose 1.7 percent to a more than one-month high. The Philippines  .PSI  
rose for a fourth day, hovering around a seven-week high. Thai  .SETI  and Vietnamese .VNI  stocks rebounded from the day before.
Foreign investors bought Malaysian and Indonesian shares worth a net 211 million ringgit ($50.72 million) and 367 billion rupiah ($27.21 million) respectively while selling Philippine shares worth a net 800 million peso ($16.83 million), stock exchange.
