The naira maintained stability at the NAFEX window, for the third day in a stretch to close at N412 to a dollar, the same as recorded last week Friday and Monday, 31st May 2021.

Meanwhile, a J.P Morgan strategist and Bitcoin expert has predicted that Bitcoin’s price could fall to as low as $26,000 before longer-term momentum would signal capitulation. He said this on the back of the recent bearish performance of the flagship cryptocurrency asset.
