Abstract

For the stock market to contribute effectively and efficiently in its role of capital formation, the macroeconomic
environment in which it operates must be conducive and growth supportive. Hence, this study examine macroeconomic determinant
of stock market development in Nigeria for the period of 1981 to 2017. The study employed the ARDL bound testing technique to
investigate the long run and short run relationship between the dependent variable (stock market development) and independent
variables (GDP, banking sector development, stock market liquidity, foreign direct investment, inflation rate and savings rate). The
result of the study showed that in both the short run and long run, key macroeconomic determinants of stock market development
in the context of the Nigerian Stock Exchange Market are banking sector development, stock market liquidity, foreign direct
investment and to an extent the income level (GDP) while inflation rate which measures macroeconomic stability, and savings rate
do not significantly explain stock market development. This study therefore recommended amongst others that policymakers should
ensure economic stability in order ensure the development of stock market.
