The Ghana Stock Exchange which led the league of African stock exchanges as the best performing market in the first half of this year in dollar term, was beaten to the first position by the Lusaka Stock Exchange in the first nine months of this year. The impressive run by the Zambian kwacha against the dollar was the key contributing factor to the Accra Bourse being pushed to the second position. In local currency term, the Accra Bourse was the best performing market on the African continent.
