Jan 29 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets gained
on Tuesday, with the Philippines hitting a record high and the
region enjoyed foreign inflows ahead of more U.S. economic data
and a Federal Reserve policy decision later in the week that may
offer clues to the Fed's stimulus plans.
    Philippine Composite Index ended 0.7 percent firmer
at a record closing high of 6,234.73 points, after hitting a
fresh intraday peak of 6,254.04.
    Thai SET index rose 0.5 percent to 1,478.77, its
highest close since November 1994.
    Manila saw a net foreign inflow of $31.9 million, Jakarta
received a net foreign buying of $20.4 million, and Kuala Lumpur
witnessed an inflow of $49.46 million. 
    Indonesia gained 0.5 percent and ended at 4439.03 
and Vietnam ended 0.9 percent higher at 484.01, a near
nine-month high. Malaysia ended steady.
    Bucking the trend, Singapore's Straits Times Index 
fell 0.4 percent to 3259.75.
