On Tuesday (25/03), the IHSG fell 0.37 percent to 4,703.09 points.

The Indonesian rupiah exchange rate continued to strengthen as it has done since the start of 2014. Several appreciating emerging market currencies, supported by the stronger Chinese yuan (despite the fact that economic expansion of China is still slowing), provided positive sentiments for the rupiah. The yuan slightly appreciated after the central bank of China raised its yuan reference rate by 0.04 percent to 6,1426 per US dollar.

Bank Indonesia's benchmark rupiah rate (Jakarta Interbank Spot Dollar Rate, abbreviated JISDOR) appreciated 0.23 percent on Tuesday (25/03) to IDR 11,357 per US dollar.
