Global Market Highlights
The DJIA strengthened by +0.22% on Friday (08/09), followed by the S&P500 (+0.14%) and the Nasdaq (+0.09%). Wall Street successfully rebounded due to increasing investor expectations that The Fed will maintain the benchmark interest rate during the FOMC meeting in Sep-2023. Today, the market will be looking toward several data releases such as: 1) US Consumer Inflation Expectation Aug-2023; 2) US 6-Month Bill Auction; 3) US 3-Year Note Auction.

Domestic Update
Bank Indonesia (BI) reported that the Consumer Confidence Index for Aug-2023 increased to a level of 125.2 (vs Jul-2023 realization of 123.5). MNCS Comment: The CCI successfully remains at its optimistic level. This is supported by the Current Economic Index which rose to 115.5 (vs 113.8 in Jul-2023) and the Consumer Expectation Index which increased to 135.0 (vs 133.2 in Jul-2023). The rising optimism is expected to boost future purchasing power.

IHSG Updates
JCI weakened -0.43% to 6,924.78 on Friday (08/09), followed by net foreign sell reaching IDR1.1 trillion. A number of sectors experienced weakening and weighed on the index, led by the transportation sector (-1.72%) followed by the property sector (-1.30%). On the other hand, sectors that experienced strengthening were led by the technology sector (+1.58%) followed by the health sector (+0.31%). The decline in IHSG aligns with the contracting movement of Asian stock exchanges, where investors negatively responded to the release of Japan's economic growth data in 2Q23, which grew only by +4.8% QoQ (vs a consensus of +5.5% QoQ). The Rupiah closed at IDR15,325/USD. We estimate that the JCI will move in the price range of 6,912-6,946. Today's recommendation: AUTO, MEDC, PTBA, TOWR.
