See Telkom’s Profit Semester I to a Number of Issuers Downgrade

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Stock trading activity earlier this week was still influenced by the development of the handling of the corona virus (covid-19) and trade relations between the United States and the US. In addition, there is some news from last week that will affect trade earlier this week.

As a reminder, at the end of last week the Composite Stock Price Index (JCI) on Friday (7/8/20) closed in the red zone with a decrease of 0.66% at the level of 5,143.89.

Within a week the JCI was recorded to have corrected 0.11% and closed at the level of 5,143.89. JCI had recorded a strengthening, but in the last trading day on Friday (7/7/2020) IHSG fell 0.66%.

Last week, tensions between the United States and China returned to heat. The latest US President Donald Trump issued an executive order on Thursday (6/8/2020) that prohibits US companies or individuals from transacting with ByteDance, the Chinese company that owns the video sharing app Tik Tok, and Tencent, owner of the WeChat application.

Domestically, Indonesia’s foreign exchange reserves (cadev) skyrocketed in July, surpassing the all-time high recorded more than 1.5 years ago.

After a sharp decline in March, Indonesia’s cadev has been on the rise for 4 straight months. One of the triggers for cadev’s skyrocketing last month was the issuance of global bonds.

Apart from this news, also pay attention to the incidents of issuers that occurred during last week’s trading.
