The Nigerian currency to the U.S dollar remained stable at the official foreign exchange (FX) market on Tuesday despite falling to N456.97 at intraday trading.
Data from FMDQ securities showed at the Investors and Exporters (I&E) window that the market closed at N415.07/$1, the same rate in the last three trading sessions.
During trading on Tuesday, participants bid for the greenback at N405.00 and N456.97, before closing at N415.07 per $1.
This came as Forex supply to the window fell by 67.8 percent or $103.71 million to $152.98 million from the preceding day’s turnover of $256.69 million.
However, it was a different scenario at the interbank window of the market as the local currency depreciated against its United States’ counterpart by 2 kobo to settle at N411.66/$1 in contrast to the preceding session’s value of N411.64/$1.
But the domestic currency appreciated by 5 kobo against the British Pound Sterling to trade at N549.32/£1 compared to N549.37/£1 it was sold on Monday.
But against the Euro, it lost N2.46 to close on Tuesday at N467.28/€1 in contrast to the previous day’s N464.82/€1.
