    Indonesia Stock Market: Joining Regional Rally or Late Sell-Off?

    After Indonesia's markets have been closed for one full week due to the Idul Fitri holiday, they are back open today (11/07).

    Initial Public Offering (IPO) Indonesia: Made Easier to Go Public

    The Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) and the Financial Services Authority (OJK) aim to boost the number of listed companies in Indonesia by making it easier for companies to go public in an initial public offering (IPO). One strategy is the setting up of "Go Public" information centers in Jakarta and other big cities in Indonesia.

    Indonesia Stock Market & Rupiah: Asian Stocks Rally as Brexit Odds Slide

The latest opinion polls, however, indicate a growing chance that the UK will remain part of the UK, hence causing a sigh of relief on global markets.
