"Positive trends in global markets and the US stock market may push the IHSG to rebound today," Valbury Securities Head of Research, Alfiansyah, noted in Jakarta. He added that the US stock market had grown stronger since earlier this week amid a release season of the company's earnings report.
In the meantime, the index of the 45 most liquid stocks, or LQ45, in the Indonesia Stock Exchange, also climbed 3.36 points, or 0.35 percent, to 971.7.
