The objective of this study is to analyze the impact of the global financial crisis on the Nigerian Stock Exchange from 2008 to 2011. Market Capitalization is the proxy of the Nigerian Stock Exchange while Capital Inflow and Foreign Exchange Rate are the proxy of global financial crisis on Nigerian Stock Exchange. Using the ordinary least square it was found that the global financial crisis has no significant effect on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. This means policy of regulators had deepened the recession on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. The government is therefore advised to put up measures to stem up investors’ confidence and activities in the market so that it could contribute significantly to the Nigerian economy.
