A quiet day in Port Louis. Nothing exciting to write home about.

Nigeria: ASI +0.81%, USD 10.3m

Another quiet day in Lagos which was not helped due to the holiday in South Africa. Local demand once again drove activity in the banks (+2.04%) with action, as always, focused on Zenith Bank (+3.13%, N13.19) and GTB (+4.53%, N16.38). The consumers fell by 1.75% although outside of NB (-95bps, N104.00) the sector was dead.
