In most economies, variations in interest rates have become a prominent feature both in the long-run and short-run. This study thus examines by means of robust analysis, the effect of the variations in interest rates on the level of stock market capitalization in Nigeria for a period of 29 years — Data was obtained from the statistical bulletin of the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN for the relevant years.
The analysis of the data obtained was done with the Ordinary Least Square OLS method. The results from the study showed that variations in interest rate significantly affect the level of stock market capitalization, thereby suggesting that there is a significant relationship between interest rate variation and the level of stock market capitalization in Nigeria for the period under study.
