The Lagos bourse closed southwards today by 1.14% amid bearish momentum as investors sentiment remained lukewarm.

Elsewhere, NIBOR dipped for most tenure buckets amid renewed ease in the financial system liquidity; similarly, NITTY contracted for most maturities tracked amid renewed demand pressure in the secondary treasury bills market.

In the bonds market, the values of OTC FGN debts were flattish for most maturities tracked; however, FGN Eurobond values fell across maturities tracked amid sustained bearish activity in the international bond market.
