SE Asia Stocks-Largely up; Philippines pares gains to close slightly up

Most Southeast Asian stocks rose on Wednesday, with Singapore and Vietnam extending gains while the
Philippine market pared earlier strength to close marginally higher.
"Regional markets are moving today more as a reaction from the last few days' strength, primarily due to the U.S. Federal Reserve's guidance on not raising interest rates (soon), as this will in turn help funds flow back to these markets," said Charles Ang, an analyst with Manila-based COL Financial Inc.
Markets in Southeast Asia will move higher in the coming days as liquidity seems to be flowing back, Ang said, adding
that China's trade data would impact these markets to a certain degree.*:nL4N1901R9
China's exports fell more than expected in May as global demand remained stubbornly weak, but imports beat forecasts, pointing to improving domestic demand and adding to hopes that the world's second-largest economy may be slowly stabilizing.
Singapore's Straits Times Index  .STI  extended gains into a fifth consecutive session, led by oil & gas stocks as crude
prices jumped to their highest level in eight months.
Keppel Corp Ltd  KPLM.SI  rose 4.95 percent, while Sembcorp Industries Ltd  SCIL.SI  gained 4.1 percent.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  rose for a second day and closed 0.5 percent higher, led by basic materials and technology stocks, while Philippine shares  .PSI  closed 0.2 percent higher, after rising as much as 1.1 percent to their highest level since May 25, 2015 earlier in the day.  
Meanwhile, Indonesian shares  .JKSE  hit an 11-month peak before settling down 0.4 percent, with telecommunication
services and industrials stocks leading the losses. Telekom Indonesia  TLKM.JK  fell 3.1 percent, while Jasa Marga  JSMR.JK   dropped 0.9 percent.
"... expect to see further softening of transaction volume as investors are likely to wait for key market data ahead of BI
meeting, British referendum, and June FOMC (meeting)," said Taye Shim, an analyst with Daewoo Securities Indonesia, in a note.
