AN ANALYSIS OF THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF STOCK MARKET ON NIGERIAN ECONOMY (1986-2010)

ABSTRACT
A major engine of economic growth and development of any nation is the stock market. It impacts positively on the economy by providing financial resources through its intermediation process for financing long term projects. These projects could be promoted by governments or private institutions. The analysis scope covered a period of twenty-five years spanning from 1986-2010.
