SE Asia Stocks-Mostly up; Foreigners buy Malaysia, Indonesia stocks

Sept 13 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets edged
up ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve's decision later in the
day, with Malaysia and Indonesia seeing strong foreign inflows
as investors remained cautiously optimistic on possible further
stimulus action to bolster the world's largest economy. 
    Malaysia ended 0.9 percent higher on strong volume
with a net foreign inflow of $43.96 million. Indonesia saw
$50.19 million net offshore buying, despite the broader Jakarta
index edging down 0.1 percent. 
    The Philippines, the region's second best performer
after Thailand, gained 0.6 percent to a one-month high, while
Vietnam ended 0.8 percent firmer. Singapore's benchmark
Straits Times Index ended steady at two-week high. 
    Bucking the trend, Thailand fell 0.2 percent from a
16-year high.
