The Bank Indonesia (BI) consumer survey recorded the Consumer Confidence Index (IKK) for the period of January 2021 at 84.9. This figure is lower than the previous month which was at the level of 96.5. This decline was driven by a decline in two of its components, namely: weakening consumer expectations of economic conditions in the next 6 months, and a decline in the current Economic Condition Index (IKE). The current CECI is recorded at 63.0 or lower than 68.6 in December 2020. Meanwhile, consumer expectations of the current economic conditions have weakened due to the policy of Enacting Restrictions on Community Activities (PPKM) in several regions, particularly Java and Bali. Yesterday, the yield on 10-year Government Securities (SUN) increased by 4.8 bps to a level of 6.24%.
