Indonesian Stocks Cap Biggest Monthly Loss in Almost Two Years

(Bloomberg) -- Follow Bloomberg on LINE messenger for all the business news and analysis you need.

Indonesian stocks posted the biggest monthly decline since March 2018 as concerns over the impact of the spread of a deadly virus from China triggered a selloff.

The Jakarta Composite Index tumbled 1.9% to 5,940.048 on Friday, the biggest daily drop since Aug. 5, extending losses this week alone to 4.9%. The index lost 5.7% this month.

While the selloff was triggered by investor concerns over the novel coronavirus from China, it may only be temporary and provide investors a buying opportunity, Mirae Asset Sekuritas analyst Hariyanto Wijaya said by phone.

Finance stocks led the market lower, as all sectors lost; 306 of 676 shares fell, while 145 rose.

Private lender PT Bank Central Asia contributed the most to the index decline, decreasing 3.9%. Information technology company PT Envy Technologies Indonesia had the largest drop, falling 24.9%.
