·         The banking sector recovered from previous bearish sentiments as GTBank had a late surge to close at N17.80 and recorded a 2.3% mark-up, the highest in the sector today. Also heading north were Access Bank, Diamond Bank, Stanbic IBTC , UBA and First Bank. On the other hand, Zenith Bank lost less than 1.0% with fairly matched demand and supply, while Sterling Bank lost 3.7%.

·         Sentiments for NB and International Breweries remained bullish as they consolidated on previous gains, both inching up with gains of 1.3% and 4.9% respectively; with closing sentiments that could lead to further increase tomorrow.
