NGX Closes Green as Market Capitalisation Rises by N19Bln

Nigerian Exchange Group (NGX), which had closed in the red on Monday, reversed the negative trend on Tuesday following buying interest in BUA Cement.

The market capitalisation rose by N19 billion or 0.09 per cent to N21.925 trillion from N21.906 trillion on Monday.

Additionally, the All-Share Index increased by 36.60 points or 0.09 per cent to 42,013.39 from 41,976.79 on Monday.
