USD/IDR Moves Back Under 50-DMA, BI To Auction 1-Month DNDF


Spot USD/IDR has moved away from its 50-DMA attacked yesterday, after the rate failed to consolidate above the moving average. It last sits -21 pips at IDR14,057, with bears looking for a dip through Jan 22 low of IDR13,993, towards Jan 4 low of IDR13,865. Conversely, a firm bounce above the 50-DMA/yesterday's peak at IDR14,083/14,099 would draw attention to the 38.2% retracement of the Oct 14 - Jan 4 slide/Jan 12 high of IDR14,204/14,205.
