[HONG KONG] Shanghai stocks retreated Monday after China released data showing growth at its slowest rate for six years in July-September, although losses were tempered by hopes of fresh stimulus measures.

The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index slipped 0.14 per cent, or 4.65 points, to 3,386.70. The Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, edged up 0.14 per cent, or 2.68 points, to 1,969.64.

In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng Index reversed early losses to end marginally higher, adding 8.24 points to 23,075.61.
