SE Asia Stocks-Thai shares fall most in 11 months; Philippines rebounds     
     

Thai shares on Thursday recorded their biggest single-day fall since mid-November while Philippine
shares reversed losses by the end of the session.
    
Sentiment in the region was dampened by a fall in Asian stocks which shed gains after data showed that growth in China slowed slightly in the third quarter.  
    
Thai shares  .SETI  dropped as much as 1.6 percent despite data showing a trade surplus in September. Thailand also raised its 2017 export growth forecast to over 8 percent.
     
Malaysian shares  .KLSE  slipped as much as 0.4 percent to their lowest since April 20 ahead of the monthly inflation data due on Friday.  
    
The consumer price index likely rose 4.3 percent in September, according to analysts polled by Reuters, indicating
an increase in the inflation rate for a second straight month.  
 
Indonesian stocks  .JKSE  ended 0.3 percent lower ahead of a policy meeting later in the day in which the central bank is  expected to stay pat on the monetary policy.
    
"Market and Mirae expect key interest rates to remain unchanged at 4.25 percent," Mirae Asset Sekuritas said in a
note.
    
The Indonesian sub-index,  .JKLQ45  comprising 45 most liquid stocks on the benchmark, lost as much as 0.9 percent with Telekom Indonesia  TLKM.JK  leading decliners.
    
Indonesian crude palm oil exports are expected to dip slightly in September from the previous month while output from the world's top producer of the commodity grew, according to a Reuters survey. 

Philippine shares  .PSI  recouped early losses to end 0.7 percent higher. Index heavyweight Ayala Corp  AC.PS  was the top gainer on the benchmark.  
    
The Philippine military said there was a "big possibility" that a top Malaysian militant tipped to become Islamic State's point man in Southeast Asia was killed in battle, during the Marawi seige, the country's biggest security crisis in years.
 
Singapore shares  .STI  rose for a fifth session in six, with United Overseas Bank  UOBH.SI  and DBS Group Holdings  DBSM.SI  the leading the gains.  
    
Singapore Exchange Ltd  SGXL.SI  and U.S.-based Nasdaq formed a pact to support fast growing Asian companies to list on both capital markets, possibly simultaneously.
