The IHSG had started the trading day positively, climbing 0.65 percent being supported by Wall Street where the Dow Jones reached a new record on Thursday (21/11). However, after foreign investors started to sell, the IHSG went back in the red.

The Indonesian rupiah exchange rate (the central bank's mid rate) rose slightly (0.09 percent) to IDR 11,717 per US dollar. The rupiah's movement was rather stagnant today after having depreciating sharply on Thursday (21/11) when market participants responded to the result of the FOMC meeting. The participants at the meeting agreed that the US economy is improving. However, it remains unclear when quantitative easing will be wound down. The Federal Reserve has stated to continue the program for as long as needed.
