Nigerian bourse ended neutral amid rising crude oil prices at the first trading session for the week.
- Ongoing protests among a significant number of Nigerian youths in urban areas weighed on Monday’s trading activity, as economic activities were disrupted at Nigeria’s economic hub, thereby leading to a plunge in trading activities.
- Furthermore, gains recorded by Conoil, GTbank got neutralized, as selling pressure observed in Eterna, Cadbury, and Zenith bank intensified.
- Nairametrics envisage cautious buying as many Nigerian millennials still remain on the street protesting for other reforms, and the rising caseloads of COVID-19 in Nigerian’s international markets would most likely affect its major export earnings in the mid-term.
