BANGKOK, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets tracked Asian markets lower on Thursday led by Singapore
ahead of a polling day holiday, but stocks in Malaysia recouped
early losses following upbeat July industrial production
data. 
    Singapore's key Straits Times Index slipped 1.4
percent after two days of gains to its highest close in more
than a week. Selling was almost broad-based, with 26 out of 30
stocks in the index falling.
    The city-state's bourse will be closed on Friday for a
general election. 
    Malaysia's key index rose 0.7 percent. Among the top
gainers was Genting, which jumped 6.4 percent, while
banking stocks including Maybank fell ahead of a
central bank interest rate decision on Friday. 
    Stocks in Indonesia and Thailand recovered
some of their earlier losses helped by economic stimulus
measures.  
    The Philippines retreated, with stock exchange data
showing net foreign sales worth 586 million pesos ($12.50
million). Vietnam ended nearly unchanged after climbing
at one point to a three-week high.
