DJIA slipped by -0.56% on Tuesday (17/11) followed by S&P 500 (-0.48%) and Nasdaq (-0.21%). Stock prices dropped as investors digested data showing signs of weakness in the US consumer, while Amazon's foray into the pharmacy business sent drug store stocks lower. Against the sluggish economic backdrop, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said both monetary and fiscal stimulus would be needed to support the economic recovery, which still has a "long way to go". Moreover, the market will look forward to several data releases today, such as: 1) UK Inflation Rate; 2) Eurozone Core Inflation Rate; 3) Canada Core Inflation Rate.

IHSG Updates

JCI increased by +0.64% to 5,529.94 on Tuesday (17/11) followed by net foreign buy reaching IDR809.65 billion. JCI is in the uptrend while other regional Asia indices closed indifferently. JCI was backed by six sectors while trade, agriculture and miscellaneous sector drop. Infrastructure sector led the rise due to TLKM's funding to Gojek while consumer sector also increased supposedly due to early window dressing as foreign investors start to bid in. Meanwhile, the Rupiah exchange rate was strengthening at IDR14,055. We estimate JCI will move in the range of 5,381 – 5,570 while waiting for car sales and property price index data release.
