    July 9 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets rose
on Monday, with Singapore bouncing back from a 14-month low, as
broader Asian shares rallied after a week of losses stemming
from worries over a trade war between the United States and
    Asian shares also took heart from favourable jobs data out
of the United States that underscored the economy's strength,
and China's efforts to attract more foreign capital and support
its economy after U.S. tariffs on Chinese imports came into
effect on Friday.
    "Lately we've seen some recovery in the Chinese market,
given the fact that it has lost substantially over the past few
weeks. This has also boosted sentiment in the regional markets",
said Manny Cruz, analyst at Asiasec Equities Inc.
    China's securities regulator said on Sunday it plans to ease
restrictions on foreign investment in stocks listed on the
Shanghai or Shenzhen exchanges.

    The index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks

    Thai shares were up as much as 0.8 percent, buoyed
