The Nigerian equities market resumed trading week on Monday with a loss of 0.74 per cent, following losses achieved by medium and large equities.

Specifically, the All Share Index (ASI) shed 204.68 points or 0.74 per cent to close at 27,574.32 against 27,779.000 achieved on Friday.

Similarly, investors net worth dipped by N90 billion in value as market capitalisation declined to N13.423 trillion against N13.522 trillion on Friday.

The downturn was impacted by losses recorded in medium and large capitalised stocks, amongst which are; Airtel Africa, Chemical and Allied Products (CAP), Cement Company of Northern Nigeria (CCNN), Dangote Cement and Unilever Nigeria.

Reviewing the market performance, analysts at Afrinvest Limited said, “In line with the trend, we expect the bearish performance to continue in the absence of any positive driver.
