Spot USD/IDR tumbled to its worst levels in 5 months, owing to the rupiah's sensitivity to moves in U.S. Tsy yields. The pair last trades -50 figs at IDR14,168, after forming a death cross earlier this week. Bears looking for a further sell-off past May 10 low of IDR14,145. Conversely, bulls would get some relief, should USD/IDR rally past Oct 12/13 highs, both at IDR14,224.

  • USD/IDR 1-month NDF last seen -40 figs at IDR14,192. On the downside, May 7 low of IDR14,133 provides the initial target. On the flip side, bulls keep an eye on the 50-DMA at IDR14,342.
