After a tumultuous two days of losses, Nigerian investors found solace today as the equity market bounced back into the green zone.

The market saw a refreshing upswing with a notable injection of N165bn into investors’ portfolios, countering the hefty N2.5tn loss suffered previously. The Nigerian Exchange marked a modest ascent of 0.30 percent, offering a glimmer of hope to traders who have been on edge.

Speaking to our correspondent, seasoned investor Mr. Adekunle expressed cautious optimism, saying, “It’s a welcome change after the recent downturn. Hopefully, this upward trajectory will continue, but we must remain vigilant.”

Mid and large-cap stocks such as FBN Holdings, BUA Cement, Eterna Plc, and United Bank for Africa witnessed a surge in demand, pushing their prices up significantly. Conversely, Okomu Oil, Morison Industries Plc, Sterling Financial Holdings, JAPAULGOLD, and Caverton found themselves at the losing end, experiencing notable declines in their stock values.

The banking, oil/gas, and industrial sectors celebrated gains, whereas the insurance and consumer goods sectors faced setbacks. Despite subdued trading activity, there was a silver lining with an increase in total traded volume, indicating a degree of renewed investor interest.

FBN Holdings stole the spotlight as the most actively traded stock, with a significant volume and value exchanged. Reflecting on the market’s performance, analyst Ms. Adebayo remarked, “Today’s rebound is a testament to the market’s resilience. However, uncertainties linger, and investors should remain vigilant amidst the volatility.”

As the market recalibrates, eyes remain fixed on key players like Access Corp, Zenith Bank, and MTN Nigeria, whose movements could sway market sentiment in the days to come. With hopes pinned on sustaining this positive momentum, investors brace themselves for whatever twists and turns lie ahead.
