ASI closes flat, with the Bull and Bear fight ending with a tie (ish)   

20th June, 2019

The Nigerian bourse closed relatively flat as the All Share Index shed a meagre 2bps. The index was trading in the green for the first half of the session before a mid-session dip in ACCESS and ZENITHBANK. Market activity remained flat d/d with the Banking sector accounting for 53% and 40% of volume and value traded. Despite the slightly negative close, market breadth was 1.9x positive with 25 advances vs 13 declines. Three key sectors closed in the green while the Oil & Gas sector (-105bps), driven by FO, was the sole loser.

What will shape the market tomorrow? 

The market had little to no reaction to the appointment of a new NNPC head by President Buhari in today’s session. In the absence of any market drivers to sway the market, we foresee another session of mixed to positive trading tomorrow.
