After beginning 2024 on a blistering note, the NGX slowed down in the second quarter of the year.

    With an All-Share Index of 99,925.29 as of June 14, 2024, the market has a year-to-date return of 33.64%.

    This is in contrast with the 39.84% YTD return achieved at the end of Q1 2024.

    The slowdown in Q2 2024 is linked to a very bearish April, which the market has tried to bounce back from in May and June.

    As of June 14, 2024, the NGX has recorded a month-to-date return of 0.63%, having begun the month with an ASI of 99,300.38 points.

    The gains recorded in June can be attributed to the 5.09% gain posted by the NGX Oil and Gas Index, the 2.99% increase in the NGX Banking Index, the 2.24% rise in the NGX Pension Index, and the 1.39% uptick in the NGX Consumer Goods Index.
