From the Editor’s Desk 

The apex bank has technically put the bullet in a piece meal manner through the Naira’s throat by the introduction of the import and export window. At the same time with active intervention in the foreign exchange market, the bank has narrowed down the gap between the de-jure rate and de-facto rate.  In recent time, the cost of heavy sterilization has begun to strain the external reserve, thereby the reserves has shifted from an earlier position of accretion to depletion.

Evidently, the cost of sparing the Naira from absorbing completely the external shock is obviously weighing down external reserves. It also begs the question, whether the present level of exogenous inflow can sustain both the level of heavy sterilization and an accretion in reserve concurrently.  In the week ahead, the National Bureau of Statistics will make available unemployment and underemployment figures for the fourth quarter of 2016.  Thus such figures will provide a better understanding on how the misery index is faring.
