In the just concluded week, activity in the primary market was muted as there were neither auctions nor matured T-bills.
However, the Standing Standing Deposit Facility (SDF) worth N117.02 billion outweighed the (SLF) worth N10.26 billion
– indicative of financial system liquidity ease as deposit money banks deposited more money with CBN than they borrowed from it.
Hence, given the financial system liquidity boost, NIBOR for 3 months and 6 months tenor buckets moderated
to 4.44% (from 4.65%) and 4.69% (from 5.27%) respectively.
However, NIBOR for overnight funds and 1 month rose to 8.0% (from 1.30%) and 4.49% (from 3.98%) respectively.
Meanwhile, NITTY moved in mixed directions across maturities, while yields on 1 month and 6 months maturities moderated to 1.05% (from 1.19%) and 1.55% (from 1.73%) respectively, yields for 3 months and 12 months maturities rose to 1.30% (from 1.27%) and 3.10% (from 3.00%) respectively.
