According to figures from the Nicaraguan Stock Exchange (BDVN), between January and August 2019 and the same period in 2020, the amount of transactions in the stock market increased by $231 million, from $190 million to $421 million.

According to BDVN executives, the increase recorded in the first eight months of the year is mainly explained by short-term placements by the Central Bank of Nicaragua and issues by the Treasury.

Gerardo Arguello, general manager of the BDVN, explained to that "... in September we started off very well, the same as in August, we are having much more important volumes than what we had last year, we have already exceeded the volume traded in all of 2019, this is due to operations with government instruments."

Arguello added that "... It is very difficult to make projections in these circumstances, but everything indicates that we will continue in the same dynamic of the beginning of this year with important transaction volumes, we do not see reasons for this not to happen because there will continue to be important investments, both from the government and from the companies that are making issues on the Stock Exchange."
