Rupiah Steadies Just Shy Of 50-DMA


Spot USD/IDR operates within a familiar range, last trades +10 pips at IDR14,032. A firmer push through the 50-DMA/Jan 28 high at IDR14,080/14,099 would give bulls a green light for targeting the 38.2% retracement of the Oct 14 - Jan 4 sell-off/Jan 12 high at IDR14,204/14,205. Conversely, a dip through Jan 22 low of IDR13,993 would open up IDR13,865, the low print of Jan 4.
