SE Asia Stocks-Singapore drops on growth fears; Thailand extends falls

Singapore shares posted their lowest close in two weeks on Tuesday after local media reported the
economy might see some quarters of contraction, quoting a government minister.
The government still expects the economy to grow 1 to 2 percent for the full year, but on the lower side of the forecast
range, said Trade and Industry Minister Lim Hng Kiang.
Financials  .FTFSTAS8000  shed 0.3 percent after the city-state asked Swiss wealth manager Falcon Private Bank Ltd to cease operations and fined lenders DBS Bank  DBSM.SI  and UBS AG  UBSG.S  over lapses in its biggest crackdown on entities dealing with Malaysian sovereign fund 1MDB.   

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  retreated 1.1 percent after creeping higher in the previous session as investors saw less likelihood of Republican nominee Donald Trump winning next month's U.S. presidential election.   

Thai shares  .SETI  extended falls, declining 1 percent to their lowest close in a month, with consumer and industrial
stocks pulling down the index. Siam Cement Pcl  SCC.BK  shed 2 percent.   
Foreign investors cut Thai bond holdings by 9.2 billion baht ($263.8 million) in the first 10 days of October, showed Reuters calculations based on data from the Thai Bond Market Association.  
Indonesian shares  .JKSE  gained 0.4 percent after a survey by the central bank showed annual retail sales in August grew at a much faster pace of 14.4 percent.   
Gains were led by energy and consumer staples stocks with cigarette maker Hanjaya Mandala Sampoerna Tbk PT  HMSP.JK   closing 1.5 percent higher.
Philippine stocks  .PSI  fell for the fifth straight session and posted their lowest close since mid-June, with Manila
Electric  MER.PS  and JG Summit Holdings  JGS.PS  declining about 2 percent and 3 percent, respectively.  

The country's exports continued to decline in August, although at a slower pace, while imports rose 12.2 percent,
trade data released on Tuesday showed.
