We estimate JCI to rally with the support range of 6035-6042 and the resistance range of 6117-6122. The positive sentiment comes from the updated trade relation between the U.S. and China. China is reported to cut the tariffs on the U.S. automotive from 40% to 15%. It indicates the progress of the trade deals between the world’s two largest economies after both countries’ presidents met during G-20.
From the domestic outlook, the rupiah depreciation in recent days is forecasted to halt. The rupiah weakens from 12,200 to 14,600 per USD. The better trade deals between the U.S. and China will strengthen the rupiah.
