Bullish Price Sequence

Rupiah Firms A Tad


Spot USD/IDR has descended onto support from Jun 2 low of IDR14,253 this morning, in the wake of yesterday's sell-off in the greenback. The rate last sits -11 figs at IDR14,254, with bears looking for a clean break below the aforementioned support, which would clear the way to May 10 low of IDR14,145. Conversely, gains past Jun 4 high of IDR14,322 would shift focus to the 200-DMA/May 20 high at IDR14,378/14,400.

  • USD/IDR 1-month NDF last seen +4 figs at IDR14,291 and a jump above May 28 high of IDR14,381 would bring May 20 high of IDR14,475 into play. Bears need a slide through Jun 1 low of IDR14,257 before taking aim at May 7 low of IDR14,133.
