The Nigerian Exchange (NGX) rides on buying waves due to equities investors’ improved buying sentiments on Mecure and banking stocks, detail from Alpha Morgan Capital Limited shows.

Traders said in their midday report on the local bourse that FBN Holdings and UBA are the major drivers of the intraday rally which nudge the market index upward – mildly at this point.

Presently, the NGX All Share Index is showing a marginal lift of 0.04%, Alpha Morgan Capital Limited told investors via email.

The investment firm said the uptick is attributed to buy-side interest observed in notable stocks, such as MECURE, UNILEVER, FBNH, FIDELITYBK, UCAP, UBA, INTBREW, and other listed stocks. Nigeria Eurobond Slumps after CBN Resumes OMO Auction
