NEW YORK - The U.S. services sector grew in March at its fastest pace in nearly four years, data showed on Monday, while pending sales contracts for existing homes rose in February, suggesting steady economic improvement.

The Institute for Supply Management said its service index grew in March for a third straight month, jumping to 55.4, its strongest reading since May 2006. That was up from February's 53.0 reading and above economists' forecasts for 54.0 for March.

A reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector.
