The United States Chamber of Commerce has invited President Bola Tinubu to ring the closing bell of the NASDAQ on Wednesday, September 20.
NASDAQ, an acronym for National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations, is a stock exchange market based in New York, US.
NASDAQ is the most active stock trading venue in the US by volume, and is ranked second behind the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on market capitalisation.
In a statement on Monday, the US Chamber of Commerce said the bell ringing ceremony with Tinubu will take place on the sidelines of the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), and that the ceremony “symbolizes the significance of the economic ties between the United States and Nigeria”.
The ringing of the closing bell signifies the end of a trading session on a particular day.
