Dealer’s Perception

·         First Bank, Sterling Bank and FCMB fared better than most in the banking sector today, picking up 3.1%, 1.0% and 1.0% respectively at the close of proceedings. First Bank and Sterling Bank were also skewed to the buy side at the close of the session and robust demand could lead to further gains tomorrow.
