Thus, he added, from January 1 to 6, 2022, there were net foreign capital inflow of 5.33 trillion rupiahs (about 371.6 million dollars) in the state securities market (SBN) and net foreign capital outflow of 600 billion rupiahs (about 41.8 million dollars) in the stock market.

The central bank noted that Indonesia’s five-year credit default swap (CDS) risk premium rose to 77.27 basis points (bps) as of January 6, 2022 from 73.55 bps as of December 31, 2021.

Meanwhile, the 10-year Indonesian SBN yield rose from 6.37 percent at the end of Thursday (Jan. 6), to 6.42 percent on Friday morning.
