Nigeria: Economic Dashboard @ 130718
From the Editor’s Desk
The National Bureau of Statistics will on July 23, 2018 make available the headline inflation figures for the month of June 2018. As the market anticipates the figures, we look forward to witnessing the headline inflation maintain its current downward trajectory to about 10.7% in June 2018 and 9.8% in July 2018; therefore underlining the weaning base, coupled with the relatively fiscal lag. Meanwhile, Money supply remains relatively muted in our adjusted ARIMA model.

As price movement completes a dial back to single digit in the month of July, clinching the Central bank’s sweet spot, we see an inevitable claw back in inflation premium, as Treasury bill rate dampens in reaction to falling inflation and rising real interest rate. Meanwhile, the lower discount cash flow applied on government security coupled with dwindling inflation provides a leg room for corporate debentures as well.
