Nigerian bourse ended the week bullish W/W. In spite of the strong volatility seen lately in global financial markets, Nigerian investors increased their buying pressure across the market spectrum, pushing the All Share Index to its highest point this year, as it hovered above N16 trillion.
- Significant buying interests in NSE 30 Stocks like Dangote Stocks, GTBank, triggered the All Share Index to record its seventh-consecutive weekly gain.
- Nairametrics envisages cautious buying amid expected price swings on the basis that the earning window is closing down, hence stock traders and investors would shift their focus on Tier 1 banks, as their earning results would trigger a significant degree of price volatility.
