StockWatch (Jakarta) - The Jakarta Composite Index (JCI) was down sharply in the first session today (10/1) near level 1,700 at 1,712.494 due to panic selling following decline in the Southeast Asian markets.
Likewise, the LQ45 Index also stepped down 16.390 points (4.255%) at 368,839 while the Jakarta Islamic Index (JII) ended down 12.164 points (3.997%) at 292.171.
Investment limitation in Thailand was one of the factors that caused the index decline, a trader at Trimegah Securities said. The index fall was due to panic selling in the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) which was down in the noon session today after the local government issued a rule to limit foreign ownership at 50%.
Meanwhile, AAA Securities' trader said that foreign investors may have reduced their investments in the Asia-Pacific markets following issuance of the rule by the Thai government, which caused panic in the market.
