Following a sharp decline after the FG decided to adopt the flexible exchange rate policy which was announced last week, the Naira has slightly gained against the dollar on the parallel market, trading at N350 to the dollar today compared to the N351 it traded at, last Friday.

Over the past few weeks, the currency has maintained a slow, steady drop against the dollar - and some short-lived gains here and there, but has continued to drop, almost uncontrollably, against the British Pound and the Euro.

Today, the Naira traded at N350/dollar in the morning. Right now, you can buy dollars at N345/dollar on the parallel market even though this morning it cost N347, indicating a N2 drop.

For other foreign currencies, you can buy the British Pound at N502/pound on the parallel market, or sell for N507/pound, a two pound loss from yesterday when it traded for N505/pound.

The Euro is also trading for N387/euro - showing a two euro gain for the first time since last week Friday, while you can sell for N384/euro.
