Market summary for Sep 9 - bears win again   


Sep 9 (Lagos) - The domestic bourse started the week on a negative note extending last week's bearish performance (27,089.84bps). The index dropped 21bps mainly due to end of day declines in NESTLE (-573bps), STANBIC (-270bps) and ACCESS (-145bps). Similarly, volume and value traded dropped 6.67% and 33.27% respectively with GUARANTY (+134bps) dominating turnover, accounting for 78.69% of total value traded. 


However, market breadth closed positive at 1.07x as 15 stocks advanced while 14 declined. 


What will shape the market tomorrow?


In spite of the positive market breadth recorded in the local market today, we expect the market to continue its bearish trading pattern tomorrow in market most capitalized stocks in the absence of any major (positive) events. Investor sentiment in the market remains weak as cautious trading strategy is being adopted by local players in the seemingly persisting bearish trend.
