Today’s Outlook: Corrections to Dollar
We estimate that today JCI will rally with the support range of 5756-5762 and resistance range of 5835-5847. The positive sentiment comes from the corrections to the U.S. dollar index. The correction occurred after the decline in the U.S. Treasury bond yield after posting massive hikes within recent days.
On the other side, the positive sentiment comes from the revision of global economy by IMF. Although IMF cuts the estimated global economic growth to 3.7%, it stated that Indonesia’s economic growth is capable to hit 5.1%. The estimated growth in Indonesia’s economy is better than its emerging economies’ peers such as Argentina, Brazil, and Turkey whose economic growth is heavily cut by IMF.
