Market players are eagerly waiting for the next inflation figures to see whether inflation will moderate or stay at the current high level (8.61 percent year on year).

The Indonesian rupiah continued to weaken against the US dollar. The Federal Reserve's minutes, which were released yesterday, seem to indicate that there is sufficient support for a gradual phasing out of the Fed's quantitative easing program towards the end of this year. If indeed winded down, it will mean that the US dollar will become stronger as less dollars enter the market.
