  • As NITTY Moves in Mixed Directions …
  • The Nigerian Bourse fell by 18 bps amid sustained profit taking activity, presenting buy opportunities as stock prices continued their downward
    spiral.

    This was despite the Exchange recording 14 gainers as against 12 losers. Pummeled shares of Dangote Sugar Refinery lowered the NSE
    Consumer Goods index by 0.17%.

    Thus, market capitalization fell by N20 billion to close N11.73 trillion while on a year-to-date basis, the loss of
    the All Share Index increased to 15.95%.

    Elsewhere, NIBOR rose for most tenor buckets amid liquidity strain while NITTY moved in mixed
    directions.

    In the bond market, OTC FGN Bonds moved in mixed directions across maturities while FGN Eurobonds fell for all maturities tracked
    on bearish activity.
