SE Asia Stocks-Malaysia at record high; Fed meeting eyed

BANGKOK, July 16 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets
extended gains on Monday with Malaysian shares hitting a record
high as fears of an economic hard-landing in China subsided, but
trading volumes were low as investors waited for a U.S. Federal
Reserve meeting. 
    Malaysia hit an all-time high of 1,635.96 points
with a 0.6 percent gain, while the Philippines 
outperformed the region with a 1.6 percent jump. 
    Indonesia gained 0.7 percent to a more-than one-week
high with, Thailand edged up 0.3 percent to its highest
since May 8. 
    Singapore closed 0.1 percent firmer at 2-1/2-month
high.
    Regional analysts said investors cautiously bought into
equities ahead of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's
semi-annual testimony to the U.S. Congress on the economy set
for Tuesday and Wednesday.
