After a slow start at the beginning of the year, the volume of trading has improved since April in line with the bullish trend that has been sustained as at last week. The Nigerian equities market recorded a monthly growth of 14.5 per cent in  May  as  foreign portfolio and domestic investors sustained demand for  shares  following improved  foreign exchange management and    indication that the economy is emerging from  recession.

The rally has been triggered by the introduction of the new foreign exchange window for investors and exporters (I&E) by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). Apart from the new FX window by the CBN, analysts said investors are also responding to more favourable economic indicators.

Before now, market analysts had linked the   poor performance of the equity market in the last three years to: weak macroeconomic performance, inconsistent policies, weak corporate earnings and portfolio realignment from equities to fixed income securities.
