However, with the present economic macros, Nairametrics recommends you seek the counsel of a certified financial advisor.

The Nigerian bourse has continued its bullish run for three consecutive days, as some blue-chip stocks such as STANBIC, MOBIL, and GTBank recorded impressive gains.
However, Nairametrics envisages cautious buying, as market liquidity remains a major concern among stock traders. This is coupled with the issue of heightened geopolitical tension/uncertainty between two of the superpowers.
