Analyst View
Naira appreciated further against the US dollar by 0.16% at the Wednesday trading session after recovering from the major slump of last week and the Monday previous rate of N414.73/$1 to a new  N414.07/$1. The Naira traded at the parallel opening at N572/1$ and appreciated by 0.17% to close the day at N573/$1. The Naira is significantly trailing the Dollar by a wide margin most likely to slide against the USD in days to come as the financial market is still troubled and Nigeria has little or no local alternatives to many imported items. The fallen value of the Naira at the black market rides on hoarding and speculative purchases. However, the recently raised Eurobonds may likely moderate the sliding effect.
