Nigerian stocks with the greatest volatility

I can resist everything, except temptation, said Oscar Wilde, and there's no greater temptation for a trader than high volatility. Simply put, volatility is share price fluctuation within a given timeframe. The more volatility there is, the greater the risk but also the greater the potential for profit. So look deeply, look well, at this list of the most volatile Nigerian stocks and try to spot your best trading opportunity amidst the organized chaos of our commoditized capitalist system.
