Trading at the investors’ window saw the naira closing at N360.50 to the dollar, while it exchanged at N306 to the dollar at the CBN window. Traders said demand for dollar far outstripped supply as usual.

NAN reports that the naira had been battling to remain stable at N365 to the dollar before the forces of demand and supply pushed its depreciation further. Some financial analysts had on Tuesday argued that the naira, at N360 to the dollar, was undervalued.

In spite of over 3.6 billion dollars injected to the foreign exchange market by the CBN since February, the naira rate was still struggling to be stable.
