BREAKING: See Exchange Rate Today, As Naira Falls Against Dollar At Black Market

Dollar To Naira Exchange Rate Today Tuesday 30th November 2021

Naira has fallen against dollar at black market after a steady rise

News Rain Nigeria reports that the Nigerian official currency, Naira has fallen weeks after a steady rise which saw it gaining over N25 since it fell to its lowest of N575 to a dollar on September 20, 2021.

This online news platform understands that survey at the Bureau De Change (BDC) market in Wuse Zone 4 in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, and Ogba area of Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city, last week, showed that the Naira exchanged between N525 and N530/$1.

However, despite a steady rise against the dollar last week, the Naira has again gone down with the Nigerian currency trading at N545 per dollar at the Lagos and Abuja parallel market otherwise known as the black market on Thursday, November 18, 2021.

While the speculators were hoping to see a further crash of the dollar following the steady rise of the Naira last week, the reverse is the case today as the Naira trades at N545/$1 at the black market as against the N530/$1 it traded last week. This shows that the Naira lost N15 between last week Monday and today.

News Rain Nigeria reports that the black market, the players buy a dollar for N540 and sell for N545 on Thursday morning, November 18, 2021 after they bought N525 and sell for N530 last week.

Even though the dollar to naira opened at the parallel market at ₦545 per $1 today, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) does not recognise the parallel market, otherwise known as the black market.

The apex bank has therefore directed anyone who requires forex to approach their bank, insisting that the I&E window is the only known exchange.
