    * Thai shares up for sixth session in seven
    * Philippine index down for 3rd straight session

    By Sumeet Gaikwad
Sept 20 - Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose on Thursday, in line with Asian peers and overnight gains on
Wall Street, while investors took heart as Sino-U.S. trade war pressures seemed to have eased.
Markets were cautious after a new round of tariffs between Washington and Beijing, which was seen as less severe than expected, but shrugged off worries amid emerging views that the impact of the trade spat on global economic growth might not be as heavy as previously feared.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.2 percent, while S&P 500 and the Dow
Jones industrial rose on Wednesday, with the Dow hitting its highest closing level since late January.  
The Jakarta index rose for a second day to hit a near one-week high with broadbased gains.
Consumer and financials stocks were the biggest boost to the benchmark with Unilever Indonesia  rising 1.8 percent,
while Bank Central Asia  added 0.6 percent.
The index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks was up nearly 1 percent.
Financials also helped Malaysian stocks  .KLSE  hit an over one-week high, its second straight session of gains.
Lender Hong Leong Bank Bhd  HLBB.KL  rose 1.1 percent while resorts operator Genting Malaysia  GENM.KL , the biggest boost to the benchmark, added 1.7 percent.
Thai shares  .SETI  climbed for a third straight session led by gains in energy stocks. PTT Pcl  PTT.BK  and PTT Exploration and Production  PTTEP.BK  were up 1.4 percent and 1.3 percent,respectively.
Oil rose for a third day amid another drawdown in U.S.inventories and strong U.S. gasoline demand, while signs OPEC may not raise output to address shrinking supplies from Iran also supported prices.  
Singapore shares  .STI  were largely unchanged as gains in financials and consumer staples were offset by losses in
industrials and telecom stocks.
Meanwhile, Philippine shares  .PSI  fell for a third straight session as losses in real estate and industrial stocks
outweighed gains in financials.
Property developer SM Prime Holdings  SMPH.PS  was the biggest drag on the benchmark, falling nearly 2 percent, while shipping business International Container Terminal Services  ICT.PS  fell 3.5 percent.
