According to figures from the Nicaraguan Stock Exchange (BDVN), from January to May 2018, positive interannual variations were reported in the traded amount, however, for the period from June to November a downward trend has been registered.

In this regard, Gerardo Argüello, general manager of the BDVN, explained to that "... the economic crisis, because of the country's socio-political problem, is the main reason why operations have fallen on the Stock Exchange."

Argüello added that "... That has been quite pronounced (the fall) since June and related to the economic crisis Nicaragua is suffering. Some companies in the export sector are relatively better off, but in general the whole economy is affected. If deposits (in the financial system) have been reduced by 25%, our transactions in real terms by 21%. It means that they are on the same level.
