IDR

Spot USD/IDR trades -48 figs at IDR15,650 in line with the broader regional trend. Bears look for losses towards Oct 28 low of IDR15,523, while a rebound towards Nov 4 high of IDR15,750 would please bulls.

  • USD/IDR 1-month NDF last seen -9 figs at IDR15,647. Downside focus falls on Oct 26 low of IDR15,490, while bulls keep an eye on Nov 3 high of IDR15,838.
  • Foreign investors sold a net $12.40mn in Indonesian stocks Tuesday. The Jakarta Comp dropped but has regained poise today and last operates slightly above neutral levels.
  • Palm oil futures have faltered in Kuala Lumpur and last trade -MYR61/MT amid speculation that Malaysian stockpiles may have grown more than expected last month. The aggregate BBG Commodity Index sits ~0.2% lower.
  • Indonesia's retail sales estimate rose 4.51%Y/Y last month against the revised +4.56% recorded in September. Retailers said they were expecting an increase in sales of food, beverages and tobacco, as well as improving sales of information and communication equipment.
