Nigerian Stock Market Closes Flat, as the Two Market Lords (Bull & Bear) Cross Path

Equities trading on the floor of the Nigerian Stock Exchange ended today’s trade on a flat note as the lead performance pointer NSEASI closed at 39.251.29 from 39,252.89. It was a mixed performance amongst the observed market indices as shown in the index movement table. Thus, Week to Date, the lead index is 2Bpts below opening while the total gained points in the month September is now 8Bpts. See the index movement table for details.

Fundamental View

As the market awaits other expected interim dividend information, it was a net between the two market lords (bull & bear) today. As noted above, the market ended on a flat note, thereby bringing the overstretched marginal move to a close end. Generally, economic numbers remained fair and growing, similarly, earnings released so far can also be rated average, thus, traders seem to be on mutual agreement on the current market trading range. As noted in our report yesterday, outstanding interim results are; GTCO and UBA, on the other hand, Fidelity Bank is yet to unveil its half year statistics, by history, Fidelity result is expected within the current week. Please note that, the nation’s Headline Inflation figure will be due for release next week. In summary, we reiterate that, traders should tread cautiously around the market arena.

 

Technical View

Technically, the market had formed a support around 29,251 points, this point should stand strong as long as momentum remained low. Weakening the support further is the very close resistance which made the trading range very narrow, thus, increasing the probability of a breakout from the current trading range. MFI currently trend perfectly with price, in other words, no divergence had been noticed between price and MFI. Meanwhile, MFI now trend south leading from the market negative performance posted today.

Similarly, MACD had since crossed the signal line from the top on a daily chart, meanwhile WoW both MACD and the signal line is about initiating a signal. RSI Cross Over, which combine RSI-15 and RSI-7 is a sell on a daily chart and neutral WoW. We strictly recommend a cautious play around the market, we are of the opinion that a major break will take the market either way (up or down), depending on leading market fundamentals.

The total value loss by the Market Capitalization of the listed equities during today’s trading activities was N833.06 million, same as 0Bpts below the opening value. Meanwhile, trading activities for the day produced 15 ADVANCERS and 21 LAGERS. NGXASI Year to Date loss is now 253Bpts while the Market Capitalization Year to Date loss stood at N606.200 billion same as 288Bpts below the year’s opening value.
