Southeast Asian markets rise in Yellen rally

Dovish commentary from Janet Yellen gives Southeast Asian markets a boost, as investors likely believe the continuation of ultra accommodative Fed policy will stem and/or prevent emerging market capital outflows.

Across the region: SET (THD, TTF, TF+0.8%, JCI (IDX, IDXJ, EIDO) +1.5%, Straits Times (EWS, EWSS) +0.8%.

Not participating in the rally are Philippine shares (EPHE), which are up just 0.1% as the country continues to reel from damage inflicted by Typhoon Haiyan.
