CBN Devalues the Naira.. What does this mean for you?

The Central Bank Governor has just announced a full float of the Naira in a press conference in Abuja. The CBN Governor informed a stunned audience that the exchange rate will be market determined and that the CBN will also participate in the market occasionally. The CBN also maintained that the 41 items banned last year for for access to forex for imports remained banned. The CBN has also appointed primary dealers for the first time which is expected to help boost FX liquidity in the market.

In a remarkable turn on events for a CBN Governor and Government that have for months held tightly to an artificial exchange rate, the CBN Governor also revealed that we will be operating a single market suggesting that we will no longer have two windows.

The CBN also introduced a two way quote which basically means that the market will act like the stock market where buyers and sellers will state price and quantity they are willing to sell.

The CBN Governor also confirmed that all the “pent up” demand awaiting to be filled (for example airlines looking to repatriate their dollars) will be met at the interbank market but advised caution for buyers looking to rush demand. In what was quite remarkable he clearly stated that the CBN has enough reserves to meet demand and is willing to put its reserves on the line.

The market will also include financial products such as futures where businesses who need dollars in the near distant future can now hedge buy buying at a price today but get the dollars delivered when they actually need it.

As per the new price of the Naira, the CBN Governor mentioned that the price will be known when the market opens officially on Monday

The implication of this could be wide-ranging. However, we can only but conclude that the end of the black market is near as anyone and everyone can now buy dollars at any bank or with authorized dealers at a price that is market determined.

Key highlights of the press briefing.

1. Market moving to single market through interbank via a Reuters / FMDQ order matching system with 10 primary dealers (2 way quote mechanism) and other secondary detailers.

2. Primary dealers will operate the interbank market. CBN may intervene from time to time
