SE Asia Stocks-Most little changed; Fed decision awaited

Most Southeast Asian stock markets were little changed on Wednesday as investors looked to the U.S. Federal Reserve for cues on interest rate direction, with Malaysia recouping early losses on foreign-led buying.
Kuala Lumpur's composite index  .KLSE  ended the day up 0.2 percent, with Tenaga Nasional  TENA.KL , the most
actively-traded stock, rising 0.6 percent.
The market saw net foreign buying worth 192 million ringgit ($46.43 million), building on the 2.6-billion-ringgit inflow over the past fifteen days.
The Thai SET index  .SETI  was down 0.4 percent, trimming some early losses, helped by a 4.3 percent jump in large cap
energy stock PTT Exploration and Production  PTTEP.BK  amid a rise in global oil prices. 
Regional fund flows were mixed, with the Philippines  .PSI  having a net inflow for a fifth day worth 169 million peso
($3.61 million) while Indonesia  .JKSE  recorded a net outflow of 281 billion rupiah ($21.18 million), its first in three days.
The U.S. Federal Reserve is expected to hold interest rates steady on Wednesday, as it balances continued concern about the
health of the global economy with fresh signs that domestic inflation is starting to rear its head.
