Market Commentary

 

Value traded was up slightly by 7.8% to $6.83m  as we saw another quiet day on the Nigerian bourse. Some crosses today included 60m FBNH at 7.65, 3m NB at 80 and 3.5m UNILEVER at 39.50. We also saw some smaller crosses in Zenith and GTBANK. Elsewhere it was quiet. We saw the likes of UACN and OANDO lifted late in the session and although the bids in DIAMOND were supplied early in the session, it started picking up momentum once again to gain +9.41%. We expect interest to continue tomorrow.
