Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Indonesia’s financial markets closed mixed in yesterday’s trading. The Composite Stock Price Index (JCI) strengthened, but the rupiah exchange rate recorded a depreciation.
Yesterday, the JCI closed at 6,586.44. Up 0.52% compared to the previous day’s close of trading.
However, the trade was less lively. The recorded transaction volume involved 17.02 billion units of shares. Below average throughout 2021 (year-to-date) of 19.92 billion units of shares.
Meanwhile, the trade value was IDR 11.01 trillion, lower than the average year-to-date which is valued at Rp. 13.46 trillion. The frequency of transactions is at 1.19 million times, less than the average of 1.29 million times.

However, the capital inflows were unable to support the rupiah exchange rate. In front of the United States (US) dollar, the country’s currency weakened.
