Naira Sustains Gain At Parallel Market by
ArtistG.A.S . male 9:16am On Aug 10

The Naira on Wednesday appreciated against the US dollar at the parallel market, exchanging at N363 to the dollar from the N364 posted on Tuesday.

The Pound Sterling and the Euro closed at N477 and N428 to the Naira respectively.

At the Bureau de Change (BDC) window, the Naira was traded at N363 to the dollar, while the Pound Sterling and the Euro closed at N477 and N428, respectively.

Trading at the investors’ window saw the Naira closing at N367.50 to the dollar.

Traders expressed optimism that the interventions by the CBN at the market were capable of closing the gap further between the rates at the parallel market and other segments.

NAN reports that not all the BDCs in the Southwest bought foreign exchange from the weekly auction on Tuesday.

A credible BDC source told NAN on condition of anonymity that since the near convergence of rates many BDCs were trading at a loss. (NAN)
