* China's Oct industrial output grew slower than expected * Philippine shares at near 4-week low * Thai cenbank to lower growth outlook for 2019 & 2020 By Anushka Trivedi Nov 14 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets declined on Thursday, as dismal economic print from China and rising uncertainty over a highly-anticipated Sino-U.S. trade deal weighed on risk sentiment. Indonesian stocks dropped the most in the region after data showed China's industrial output grew significantly slower than expected in October, reinforcing views that long-drawn trade war with United States is taking a toll on the world's second-largest economy. "The latest news added to the sense that the path to any trade deal remains riddled with uncertainties and contributed to the relatively lower market risk appetite," OCBC analysts said in a note.
* China Oct PPI falls most in 3-yrs * Thai shares lead losses * Singapore's DBS Group flags weaker 2020 By Anushka Trivedi Nov 11 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets edged lower on Monday as uncertainty over whether the United States and China would end their bruising trade war lingered, while data from Beijing brought slowdown fears to the fore. U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday contrasted reports of officials from U.S. and China agreeing to rollback existing tariffs by saying he had not agreed to such a deal, which sparked fresh doubts over whether the two sides would find a segue in their damaging tariff spat. Meanwhile, data showed that China's producer prices, a key indicator of corporate profitability, fell the most in more than three years in October, as the manufacturing sector weakened while consumer prices grew at their fastest pace in about eight years.
* Indonesian inflation falls to 6-month low * Singapore's UOB slips on poor quarterly results * Philippine markets closed for holiday By Anushka Trivedi Nov 1 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian markets fell on Friday on a report that China expressed doubts over signing of a long-term trade deal with the United States, while a raft of weak data in the region also dented sentiment. Bloomberg reported on Thursday that Chinese officials told visitors to Beijing that it will not budge on the thorniest issues and is concerned about the risk that U.S. President Donald Trump could back out of the interim deal. Meanwhile, recent manufacturing data for trade-reliant Asian economies such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam have all disappointed.

* China, U.S. set for second day of high-level trade talks * World Bank cuts growth forecast for Philippines * Singapore set to close 0.8% higher on-week By Soumyajit Saha Oct 11 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets opened higher on Friday, with Indonesia leading the gains, as revived optimism over the ongoing Sino-U.S. trade talks boosted investor sentiment. Market sentiment turned positive after a first day of trade talks between top U.S. and Chinese negotiators that Trump characterised as "very, very good." Chances of reaching "early harvest" agreements on issues such as currencies and copyright protections were higher, a U.S. Chamber of Commerce official said, while U.S. President Donald Trump said senior U.S. delegates had "very, very good negotiations with China".

* U.S. curve inverts for first time in 12 years * Singapore hurt by losses in financial sector * Vietnam claws back ground to end 1.1% higher By Soumyajit Saha Aug 15 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended lower on Thursday, tracking a global downturn in equities as an inversion in the U.S. bond yield curve triggered recession fears, while the Vietnam index closed at its highest in two weeks. Risk appetite was all but eradicated as the inversion came shortly after economic data showed China's industrial output growth cooling to a more than 17-year low, pointing towards a slowdown in Southeast Asia's biggest trading partner. Adding to market uncertainty, no trade concessions were made by Beijing following the postponement of 10% tariffs on over $150 billion worth of Chinese imports by U.S. President Donald Trump, senior U.S. officials said on Wednesday.

Singapore slashed its full-year economic growth forecast on Tuesday as global conditions were seen worsening and data confirmed the slowest growth rate in a decade amid mounting fears of recession in the city-state. The government cut its forecast range for gross domestic product in Singapore - often seen as a bellwether for global growth because international trade dwarfs its domestic economy - to zero to 1% from its previous 1.5%-2.5% projection. Singapore's downgrade adds to concerns globally about the effect of increasing protectionism on exports and production.
