The NASD Over-the-Counter (OTC) Securities Exchange opened the second trading week of the year on a positive note, rising by 0.68 per cent at the close of transactions on Monday, January 10.

When the market closed for the day, the total value of the unlisted securities market in Nigeria stood at N636.05 billion compared with the preceding value of N631.72 billion, indiciating an increase by N4.33 billion.

Equally, the NASD Unlisted Security Index (NSI) increased by 5.11 points yesterday to end at 751.14 points as against 746.03 points it finished last Friday.

On the activity chart, the trading volume recorded an increase on Monday, rising by 21,937.6 per cent to 442,515 units from 2,008 units, while the trading value appreciated by 19,848.8 per cent to N10.3 million from N51,704, with the number of deals growing by 900 per cent to 20 deals from the two deals carried out last Friday.
