Of the major Asian economies, the Indonesian rupiah was one of the worst performing currencies in 2012, declining by 5.9 percent compared to the US dollar. This year, it has depreciated by 0.6 percent against the greenback. Concerns that negatively influence the rupiah are a widening trade deficit and slow foreign direct investment in the first month of 2013.
