Money Demand; Stability; ARDL Model; Bounds Test
This paper re-examines broad money (M2) demand and its stability in Nigeria using the Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) bounds testing procedure. First, the results indicate that a stable long-run relationship exists between M2 and its determinants including GDP, stock prices, foreign interest rates and real exchange rate. Furthermore, stock prices showed a signiﬁcant and positive eﬀect on the long-run broad money demand, which in some ways reﬂect increased ‘ﬁnancialization’3 and integration of the Nigerian economy into the global economic system. Overall, the ﬁndings of this study lend credence to the continued relevance of the broad money aggregate, M2, as a benchmark for monetary policy implementation in Nigeria.
