Jakarta (Indonesia Window) – Indonesia’s central bank, Bank Indonesia (BI), recorded a foreign capital inflow of 5.05 trillion rupiahs (some 359.2 billion U.S. dollars) in the domestic financial market during October 11-14, 2021.

The capital entered the Indonesian financial market through the government securities market of 1.78 trillion rupiahs (about 126.6 billion dollars) and the stock market of 3.26 trillion rupiahs (about 231.9 billion dollars).

“Thus, there has been a net inflow in the Indonesian financial market of 800 billion rupiahs (some 56.9 million dollars) since early 2021,” said Director of BI’s Communications Department Muhamad Nur in an official statement here, Friday (Oct. 15).

In addition, he pointed out that Indonesia’s five-year Credit Default Swap (CDS) investment risk premium rose to 90.44 basis points (bps) as of October 14, 2021 from 86.02 bps as of October 8, 2021.

Meanwhile, the yield on Indonesian government securities with a tenor of 10 years fell to 6.18 percent this morning, from 6.29 percent at the end of Thursday (Oct. 14).

However, the yield on Indonesian bonds still tends to be higher than the yield on 10-year US bonds, which was at the level of 1.511 percent.
