Nov 23 (Reuters) - Most Asian currencies firmed on Thursday as the U.S. dollar weakened after the release of the minutes of the Federal Reserve's last meeting revealed dovish tones. The minutes showed some of the central bankers' concerns regarding the inflation outlook, with emphasis placed on economic data in determining the timing of future rate rises. "The narrative in the Asian currencies is almost like a reflationary storyline. That is really spilling over from last week in the sense we have had just continual positive GDP prints across the Asian space and this has just got everybody wondering what is the next central bank narrative going to be," said Stepehen Innes, head of trading for Asia at Oanda in Singapore. Local currencies have been supported by strong economic data, with the Philippines, Malaysia and Thailand having reported third-quarter gross domestic product (GDP) numbers which have beaten expectations since Nov. 16. Malaysia grew at the fastest pace in over three years. Reuters
