The naira yesterday commenced the week with a 6 kobo depreciation to N360.06 per dollar, in the Investors and Exporters (I&E) window.

Data from the Financial Market Dealers Quote (FMDQ) showed that the indicative exchange rate for the I&E window known as Nigerian Autonomous Foreign Exchange, NAFEX, rose to N360.06 per dollar yesterday, from N360 per dollar last week Friday, indicating a 6 kobo loss in the value of naira.

Meanwhile, naira remained stable at N362 per dollar yesterday for the fifth consecutive business day in the parallel market.
