Indonesia Market Today - 24 July 2020
A. INDONESIA MORNING MARKET REVIEW
Friday (24/07/2020). After strengthening several times before, finally due to profit taking in technology-based shares, DJIA fell by -1.31% and when combined with the fall of EIDO by -0.84% (even though JCI was closed higher on Thursday) there was a chance the JCI "was infected by profit taking virus" in Friday`s trade amid the highest number of victims re-infected and killed by Corvid19, where the number of victims infected by Corvid19 on Thursday reached +1,906 people so that so far the victims were infected by Corvid19 far away from China which is suspected to be the source of the Corona Virus which reached 93,657 people (estimated to reach 100,000 people infected) with an additional death toll on Thursday as many as + 117 people so that the death toll has reached 4,576 so far, reaching 5,000 people dead in the near future, (Fatality Rate of 4.88%).
Furthermore, rising commodity prices such as: Nickel + 4.65%, Gold + 0.73%, CPO + 1.82% & Lead + 1.38% have the potential to push up commodity-based stocks in trading this Friday.
Knowing that IHSG has the opportunity to be exposed to profit taking in trading this Friday amid valuations that many stocks are very interesting to buy, we recommend being very selective if investors want to do BOW or Swing Trade so they can focus on stocks from the Bank, Construction, Pharmacy, Chicken Feed sectors Infrastructure, Gold Metals and Cigarettes in Friday trade.
