THE IMPACT OF STOCK MARKET PERFORMANCE ON THE GROWTH OF NIGERIAN ECONOMY

ABSTRACT
This study is motivated primarily by the need to enhance capital accumulation from the stock market, being the long term end of the financial system. This study is an investigation of the impact of Nigeria stock exchange performance on the economic growth of Nigeria. To accomplish these objectives, an econometric methodology was adopted as a tool for testing the stated hypothesis. The ordinary least square was chosen as the estimation tool because of the advantages it has over other estimation technique considering the phenomenon under study.
          The result of the student - t test revealed that the coefficient for market capitalization, investment rate and real exchange rate are all statistical significant at 5 percent level of significance. But the coefficient of real interest rate were not statistically significant at 5 percent level of significance The R2 which is the coefficient of multiple determination also revealed that 99 percent of the variation in the dependent variable is caused by the variation in the explanatory variables. The F test result suggested that the model is statistically significant.
 Expansion and efficiency of the Nigerian Stock Market would also be realizable if the recommendations in this project are considered This study recommends that the financial sector should be fully liberalized for efficient functioning of the financial system, the activities of the Nigerian Stock Exchange should be made more transparent as this will bring bout confidence in the mind of investors and people will be encouraged to invest, and the Government should encourage Nigerians to take advantage of the Stock Market and save for investment growth and capital formation in Nigeria.

CHAPTER ONE
1.1     BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
Primarily, a stock market is the place where companies can raise money to make their businesses bigger and better. Companies raise money by selling shares or stocks to investors. At the same time, the stock market gives investors an opportunity to invest in these companies and benefit from any profit they can make.
A stock market can also be called a capital or securities market as it encompasses the stock exchange, the branches, and the stockbrokers. An organized securities market requires a securities exchange, a securities commission or other regulatory agency, and intermediaries such as dealers, brokers, securities analysts, etc. Virtually all costs are borne by those who benefit. The intermediaries receive their fees from the issuers or investors to whom they provide a service. The stock market is usually funded through fees paid by investors and issuers; even the expenses of the securities commission may be partially paid for by registration fees rather than being a major burden on the government....
