However, 12 months forward contract rose by 0.20% to close at N388.12/USD; while the spot rate closed flat at N381.00/USD.

In the new week, we expect Naira/USD to remain stable at the Investors and Exporters FX Window (I&E FXW) given the sustained rally in crude oil prices at the international market.
