SE Asia Stocks-Most fall ahead of weekend; Singapore, Indonesia up
* Indonesia recovers from previous session's losses
* Singapore gains on bank lending growth
* Thai shares extend losses
By Syed Saif Hussain Naqvi
March 29 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended on a weak note on Thursday ahead of a long weekend, while Singapore jumped 1.3 percent on stronger bank lending growth in February.
Singapore shares .STI breathed life into otherwise subdued regional markets, bouncing back from losses in the previous session after data showed a rise in bank lending last month.
Total bank lending in the city-state rose 3.8 percent in February from a year earlier and 0.1 percent from January.
The gains were driven by financials such as Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp OCBC.SI , DBS Group Holdings DBSM.SI and United Overseas Bank UOBH.SI , each rising over 1.5 percent.
For the month, however, the benchmark was down 2.5 percent.
Indonesian shares rose 0.78 percent, gaining traction in late trade as consumer staples lifted the index,
with all sectors ending in positive territory.
Astra International Tbk PT provided the biggest boost, ending up 2.8 percent.
Thai shares extended losses to end over 1 percent lower. Most sectors took a beating, with only healthcare stocks
hitting positive territory.
Natural gas provider PTT PCL ended 2.14 percent lower, followed by Airports of Thailand PCL which lost
Vietnam shares finished 0.44 percent lower with consumer staples leading the losses, as investors seemed to shrug off a 7.38 percent growth in its economy for the January-March quarter.
The index snapped three straight session of gains, but was headed for a monthly rise of over 4 percent.
The Philippine market is closed on Thursday and Friday for holidays, while markets in Singapore and Indonesia will be
closed on Friday.
