Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The Composite Share Price Index (IHSG) closed at 6,807.86 or weakened 0.02% daily at the end of the I session on Friday (31/3/23).

A total of 253 stocks fell, 257 stocks rose while the rest 182 were flat or unchanged. By late afternoon, the purchase value reached around IDR 4.58 trillion involving 9.32 billion shares that changed hands 804 thousand times.

The decline of JCI was reflected in the weakening of many sectors. According to data from the Indonesian Stock Exchange through Refinitiv, eight sectors are in the red zone. The service and energy sectors were the most affected by the index, falling by 0.55 and 0.49 percent respectively.

This morning the JCI opened higher but gradually weakened until the close of the I session. Wall Street, which strengthened last night, actually gave a positive impression to the Indonesian stock market, JCI.

However, veteran investor Jeffrey Gundlach offers some advice sell at a public meeting or sell when there is an increase. He sees in the next few months the US will experience an economic recession and the Fed will cut interest rates several times this year.

The release of US inflation data on personal consumption expenditure (PCE) tonight is the main concern of market players and could have an impact on Indonesia’s financial market next week. This data is the Fed’s reference in setting monetary policy. Reuters poll results show PCE inflation rising 4.7% year to year (yoy) in February, same as last month.

Attention is also directed to China, which reports data on manufacturing activity, evident from the purchasing managers’ index (PMI). The results of a Reuters poll showed that China’s manufacturing PMI this month was lower at 51.5 than last month’s 52.6. Although it is decreasing, the figure is still above 50 which means expansion.

This can give a positive sentiment to the stock market for the rupee, because China is currently the pillar of global economic growth. The industrial sector, which continues to expand, shows that the demand for imported goods is still good.
