Dealer’s Perception

·         The NSE All-Share Index gained 54bps today.

·         The rally in the market was boosted by NB as it picked 5.8% to close at N162.00, closing demand will probably support this trend tomorrow. Guinness also closed on the up-tick with a 4.0% mark-up; however N260.00 appears to be its current peak with participants unwilling to bid above this price.

·         In the banking sector, the bullish run of previous sessions led to sell offs during the day’s proceeding resulting in losses for FBN Holding and Zenith Bank. Diamond Bank and Skye Bank were not spared either as they lost 3.9% and 6.3% apiece. On the other hand GTBank and UBA closed on the up-tick picking up slim gains of 1.8% and 0.6%

·         A 0.2% drop in Dangote Cement could not dampen the optimism in the market, while Ashaka cement also trended lower with a 0.6% loss. CCNN and Lafarge Wapco on the other hand were in line with market sentiments inching up 4.9% and 0.6% respectively.
