SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia ends nearly flat; cbank retains key rate

Indonesian stocks closed nearly flat on Thursday, with large-cap banks falling before the central bank's expected decision to keep its benchmark rate
unchanged, while the Philippine index rose for a third day to a near three-week closing high as domestic investors led buyers.
The key Jakarta composite index    finished the day slightly lower after trading in a range through the session.

Shares of Bank Mandiri   slid 1.5 percent and Bank Rakyat Indonesia  fell 2.1 percent.
Bank Indonesia announced after market close that it kept its benchmark reference rate unchanged at 7.50 percent, saying the level was still consistent with efforts to contain inflation and make the current account deficit healthier.  
 Indexes in Singapore   and Thailand  both retreated after the previous day's rise. The Malaysian index  hit a more than five-month closing low on profit-taking, brokers said.
The Federal Reserve signalled that interest rates would rise more slowly than markets expected, sending an index of Asian shares   higher.  
The Philippine main index   advanced nearly 1 percent  amid buying by local investors while foreign funds were net  sellers worth 1.14 billion pesos ($25.43 million), stock.
