The Naira suffered a 0.10 percent depreciation on Wednesday against the Dollar at the Investors and Exporters (I&E) Window of the foreign exchange (forex) market, data from the FMDQ revealed.
This showed that the value of the local currency reduced yesterday by 36 Kobo against the American currency at the segment of the forex market created for investors and exporters in the country by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to transact their business.
According to Zedcrest Research, the decline in the value of the Naira against the Dollar at the midweek trading session was as a result of demand from offshore, which even pushed the rates as high at N362/$ at a point in time yesterday.
Business Post observed that during transactions at the I&E FX window on Wednesday, the daily market turnover however, moderated slightly by 18 percent to $279.7 million from the previous session’s $340 million.
A look at the other segments of the foreign exchange market in the country indicated that the local currency remained stable against the Dollar at both the parallel and interbank windows at the close of business.
