Singapore shares ended flat on Monday, amid a quiet trading day across the region, with several bourses closed for a holiday.

The local benchmark Straits Times Index closed just 2.03 points, or 0.06 per cent higher, at 3,255.83.

"We are awaiting many events such as the Obama-Abe meeting, Chinese data and earnings this week," said Mr Hideyuki Ookoshi, the Tokyo-based general manager at Chibagin Securities, in an interview with Bloomberg.

"Investors are thinking the market won't move much, so they're holding off on making trades."
