A look at the daily market turnover at the I&E segment indicated an increase by 52 percent or $91.52 million to $266.11 million. This was higher than $196.51 million recorded in the previous session.
At the Central Bank’s interbank segment of the market as the Naira/USD rate was flat at N306.85/$1 after it appreciated by N0.05 on Tuesday.
The local currency closed flat yesterday against the Dollar at the parallel market at N360/$ as well as against the British Pound Sterling, exchanging at N446/£1 at the black market.
However, the domestic currency had a better performance at the same market window against the Euro, gaining N1 against the European legal tender to trade at N394/€1 on Wednesday compared with the N395/€1 it was exchanged the previous day.
