The Naira remained unchanged against the United States Dollar after Monday trading activities at the Investors and Exporters (I&E) window.

Data obtained from FMDQ securities showed the Nigerian currency closed on Monday, at N415.07/$1 for a third consecutive trading day.

The stability was maintained by the Naira as pressure coming from the demand for FX at the market segment eased yesterday amid the launch of eNaira.

During the trading session on Monday, the value of transaction at the FX window stood at $90.36 million as against the $240.97 million achieved at the previous trading day, indicating a decline by 62.5 per cent or $150.61 million.
