Naira gains to 1,250/$ after CBN sells fresh dollars to BDCs

The naira gained Tuesday morning after the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) sold dollars at a discount to Bureau de Change (BDC) operators in an attempt to ease the renewed pressure in the black market.

Reason For The Naira Gain

A dollar sold for N1,250/$ on the streets on Tuesday morning, up from N1,270/$ on Monday, according to multiple traders who spoke with BusinessDay.

 

The appreciation of the naira is coming on the heels of the CBN’s sale of $10,000 to the BDCs at a rate of N1,021/$ on Monday.

 

The apex bank last sold dollars to the BDCs at a rate of N1,101 per US dollar and has now intervened in the market four times this year, selling a combined $63 million since lifting a ban on the sale of the greenback to the informal market.
