ABSTRACT

This study investigated the Impact of financial meltdown of Nigeria Capital Market. Specifically, this paper examined the extent and magnitude of contribution of current global meltdown on the performance of the Nigerian Stock Exchange as well as the financial system and their multiplier effect on the real sector of the economy. The study employed a simple regression analysis. In this study, Capital market performance is proxied as Market turnover (MTV) as the dependent variable while the other explanatory variables to measure the global financial meltdown include the volume of traded equity(EQT),the value of the debenture(Deb),and the market share value(SHRS). Results from SPSS analytical tool revealed that the Nigerian Stock exchange meltdown is not attributed to global financial crisis but the instability of macroeconomic variables in the economy like unfavourable exchange rate, inflationary pressure, and problem of Insecurity, inadequate infrastructural facilities but to mention few. Therefore, it was recommended to policy makers that to resuscitate the Nigerian Capital Market, the Government must provide an enabling business environment devoid of corruption, aiding and abetting among the regulatory institutions and stability of macroeconomic variables to attract foreign direct investors.

No matter how often the virtues of the buy- and - hold method are preached the true test of courage comes when investors watch their holdings nose dive 5% consecutively for several weeks without any end in sight.
