There are various internal reasons for investors to prefer to wait and see first. These include concerns about further economic growth of Indonesia in 2014 (after it was announced on Monday that Indonesia's GDP growth result was a disappointing 5.21 percent year-on-year in Q1-2014) and increased speculation about coalitions and (vice-)presidential candidates for the July presidential election.

On Tuesday (06/05), the Jakarta Composite Index fell 0.17 percent to 4,834.47 points.

Several companies that posted Q1-2014 earnings reports that were above investors' expectations, such as Leighton Holdings Ltd and Genting Singapore Plc, caused a positive impact on Asian indices.
