Naira and Dollar in forex trading

WorldStage Newsonline-- The Naira firmed up at the Bureau de Change (BDCs) segment on Thursday, April 20, 2017, trading at between N376 and N378 to the United States Dollar in Lagos, Abuja and Kano, following interventions by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

A market survey revealed that the Naira, which sold at over N405 to $1 as Monday this week, recorded a boost.

There were indications that the appreciation of the Naira was as a result of policy actions of the CBN to inject more foreign exchange into the financial system, specifically targeting critical sectors in addition to special interventions in the areas of SMEs and BDCs.

According to a source at the apex bank, the Naira is expected to appreciate further when the BDCs receive another tranche of $20,000 purchases from the CBN today, April 20, 2017.

The CBN in its bid to sustain supply of liquidity to the foreign exchange market, made special interventions by simplifying the documentation process for the SMEs to enable them import eligible items and also increased both the amount and number of sales to the BDCs.
