CBN Puts Fresh $364m into Inter-Bank Forex Market



By Modupe Gbadeyanka

As part of its continued efforts to sustain liquidity in the foreign exchange market, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Tuesday released fresh $364.2 million into the inter-bank market.

It was gathered that the apex bank received requests from authorized forex dealers on behalf of their customers concerning the latest intervention.

In the fresh injection, the Retail Secondary Market Intervention Sales (SMIS) was allotted $264.2 million, while authorised dealers in the wholesale window received $100 million.

The central bank said it would continue to sustain the momentum and ensure genuine forex requests were met.

Since February this year, the apex bank has continued to provide succour to the forex market in the country.

This has helped closed the wide gap between the interbank and parallel segments of the foreign exchange market.

This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
