SE Asia Stocks-Higher on Wall Street rally, stimulus hopes

Southeast Asian stocks closed higher on Tuesday, in line with Asian peers, as risk appetite improved after an overnight rally on Wall Street and as a new round of monetary easing from Japan raised expectations of more stimulus from global policy makers.  
The U.S. benchmark S&P 500 stock index  .SPX  set record intraday and closing highs on Monday as last week's strong
monthly U.S. jobs report worked its way into financial markets.
In Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ordered a new round of fiscal stimulus spending after a crushing election victory over
the weekend as evidence mounted the corporate sector is floundering due to weak demand.  

"Markets seem to be bullish about more stimulus coming from Japan," said a Singapore-based analyst who did not want to be
While Abe did not give details on the size of the package, it is widely expected to reach 10 trillion yen ($97.5 billion).
Separately, the Bank of England meets on Thursday, and Governor Mark Carney has already signalled that the BoE will cut
rates below their already record low levels over the summer and possibly resume its 375 billion-pound bond-buying programme.
Indonesia  .JKSE  extended gains to a more than 1-year high, driven by financial stocks.      
Bank Central Asia  BBCA.JK  and Bank Danamon Tbk  BDMN.JK gained 1.9 percent each. Bank Mandiri (Persero) Tbk PT  BMRI.JK   finished about 5 percent higher.
Bank Central Asia and Bank Danamon are expected to be among lenders named by Indonesia's government to manage funds
repatriated due to a tax amnesty that is expected to attract billions of dollars in assets.
The Philippine index  .PSI  rose for a third session, with financial stocks accounting for more than half the gains.
The Philippines' central bank governor said its monetary policy stance remains appropriate, citing ample liquidity in the
market and manageable inflation.  
Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co  MBT.PS  finished 3.3 percent higher.
Singapore's Straits Times Index  .STI  gained 0.9 percent,  Malaysia  .KLSE  was flat, while Vietnam  .VNI  recovered in
late trading to close higher.
Asian shares rose, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  climbing 0.9
percent to its highest since late April.
