  • Despite Less Rosy Sentiments, Jakarta Composite Index Remains Strong

    Despite being - technically - overbought, the Jakarta Composite Index (Indonesia's benchmark stock index also known as the IHSG) continued its upward trend on Wednesday (19/02). Moreover, as market sentiments have turned less positive due to data from Europe and the USA (causing European and American indices to slow down) as well as a depreciating rupiah exchange rate, there was a sincere risk of a weakening IHSG today. However, contrary to our expectations, the IHSG rose 0.80 percent to 4,592.65 points.

  • Gain of Jakarta Composite Index Limited due to Mixed Sentiments

    Gain of Jakarta Composite Index Limited due to Mixed Sentiments

    As we have explained before, a significant amount of market participants will engage in profit taking after a day (or in this case a number of days) of gain. Mixed sentiments originating from the Asian continent, particularly Japan and China, as well as the depreciating Indonesian rupiah exchange rate contributed to the slight gain of Indonesia's benchmark index (known as the Jakarta Composite Index or IHSG). The IHSG rose 0.02 percent to 4,556.19 points on Tuesday (18/02).

  • Jakarta Composite Index and Rupiah Continue Winning Streaks

    The Jakarta Composite Index (Indonesia's benchmark stock index, also known as IHSG) continued its upward rally on Monday (17/02) even though it had concerned us that the index almost touched its 'overbought' level. Especially as the index posted limited gain by the end of last week, it made us unsure about its performance on Monday. And while there are several factors that caused positive market sentiments, we still warn for potential weakening of the index due to profit taking. On Monday (17/02), the IHSG rose 1.05% to 4,555.37 points.

  • Indonesia's Stock Index Down 0.10% But Rupiah Strengthens Sharply

    The weakening Dow Jones Index on Wednesday (12/02) caused negative market sentiments in Asia the following day. Most Asian indices, including Indonesia's Jakarta Composite Index (IHSG), were down. Not even the announcement that Bank Indonesia decided to maintain its benchmark interest rate (BI rate) at 7.50 percent was able to push the IHSG back in the green zone. Investors probably already anticipated the central bank's decision as it was in line with the market's expectation.

  • Both Indonesia's Rupiah and Stock Index Strengthen on Wednesday

    Positive market sentiments stemming from Wall Street pushed Indonesia's benchmark stock index (known as the Jakarta Composite Index or IHSG) further up on Wednesday (12/02). Even though technical indicators (such as the bollinger band) suggest that the majority of Indonesian stocks are close to the overbought area, it did not prevent investors from stock trading. The appreciating rupiah exchange rate, rising Asian indices and positive openings in Europe all contributed to the IHSG's 0.58 percent gain to 4,496.29 points.

    After experiencing 3 consecutive days of growth, Indonesia’s benchmark stock index (known as the Jakarta Composite Index or IHSG) weakened on the first trading day of the week after market participants engaged in profit taking. As such, and contrary to its usual performance, the index did not follow rising global indices on Friday (07/02). The IHSG fell 0.36 percent to the level of 4,450.75 points on Monday (10/02). Domestic investors recorded a net sell, while foreign investors recorded a net buy of IDR 842 billion.

  • Is Foreign Confidence in Indonesia’s Capital Market Restored in 2014?

    In 2013, Indonesia experienced a rough year in terms of stock trading. The world was shocked by Ben Bernanke’s speech in late May 2013 in which he hinted at an end to the Federal Reserve’s large monthly USD $85 billion bond-buying program known as quantitative easing. Through this program, cheap US dollars found their way to lucrative yet riskier assets in emerging economies, including Indonesia. But when the end of the program was in sight, the market reacted by pulling billions of US dollars from emerging market bonds and equities.

  • Stock Market Update Indonesia: IHSG Gains on 2013's GDP Growth Result

    On Wednesday (05/02), several factors caused a rebound of Indonesia's benchmark stock index (Jakarta Composite Index/IHSG). The IHSG climbed 0.74 percent to 4,384.31 points, thus closing the gap on 4,367-4,377. These factors were strengthening indices on Wall Street after US factory orders did not decline as much as was anticipated by the market, as well as today's release of Indonesia's 5.78 percent GDP growth figure (which was slightly higher than forecasted) and which led to an appreciating rupiah exchange rate.

  • Jakarta Composite Index Falls 0.78% on Weak US Manufacturing Data

    An analysis of today's (04/02) performance of Indonesia's benchmark stock index (the Jakarta Composite Index, abbreviated IHSG) is more or less the same as yesterday's analysis. The IHSG declined 0.78 percent to 4,352.26 points as market participants engaged in profit taking amid concern about weakening stock indices in the USA and Europe after seeing the US Manufacturing PMI fall to 53.7 in January 2014, while the index of US national factory activity fell to 51.3, its lowest level since May 2013.
