Shares’ value has increased by 84.7% as the stock market rises.


Yesterday’s market trading value increased by 84.7%, as shares worth N95.01 billion were traded, up from N10.31 billion the day before.

This huge growth demonstrates the high level of interest in and investor confidence in the Nigerian stock market.

The stocks market gained N270 billion on Thursday as investors’ confidence in the firms rose.

The All-Share Index increased by 496.31 points (0.81%) to 62,019.88 as the market capitalization rose from N33.50 trillion at the previous session close to N33.77 trillion.

After the administration of President Bola Tinubu abolished fuel subsidies and depreciated the naira, the NGX All Share Index is anticipated to return to a level last seen in 2008.

The Nigerian Stock Exchange’s (NSE) excellent performance was led by large increases in the banking industry, with a share index jumping 23% in June.

Another key element fueling the stock market’s rise is the desire of local investors to protect their money from rising inflation.
