Cowry 2017 Economic and Financial Markets Review and 2018 Outlook  
  According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), about 120 economies which account for 3/4 of world GDP, registered year-on-year output growth in 2017. The IMF also estimated 3.7% growth for 2017 (higher than 3.2% in 2016). Inflation was significantly driven by increased commodities prices, especially crude oil prices, following high compliance and production freeze extension agreement between Opec and non-member partners, harsh weather conditions in the United States, and geopolitical tensions in the Middle East. Central Bank of Nigeria created the market forces-based Investors and Exporters Window (I&E FXW) to further boost foreign exchange liquidity and to ensure timely execution and settlement for eligible invisible transactions. 2017 saw boost in foreign inflows, especially foreign portfolio investments, amid a more transparent foreign exchange market. The Nigerian equities market closed 2017 on a bullish note, supported by the foreign exchange stability, retention of Nigeria in the MSCI Frontier Market Index, and declining yields in the fixed income space. Macroeconomic conditions such as moderating interest rates, lower inflation rates and foreign exchange stability, amongst other things, are expected to improve further to support valuations, especially of undervalued stocks
