Trading halted for first time since 2008 over pandemic

first_imgThe Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) suspended equity trading 30 minutes before Thursday’s session ended as the main gauge dropped deeper than the bourse’s new auto rejection level to a figure unseen in almost four years.The Jakarta Composite Index (JCI) crashed more than 5 percent to 4,895.75 amid a global market rout following the World Health Organization’s declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic.“Stock trading was halted for 30 minutes, but because this occurred 30 minutes before the close of trading, trading is technically closed now,” said Fakhri Hilmi, deputy commissioner for capital market supervision at the Financial Services Authority (OJK). “Today has closed; it’s all done.” The pneumonia-like illness has spread to hundreds of countries around the world, disrupting business activity in economic giants, such as China, the United States, Japan and South Korea.Tokyo dropped 4.4 percent on Thursday, while Hong Kong fell 3.7 percent, Singapore plunged 3.8 percent. London fell deep in the red at 7.7 percent on early trading while S&P 500 futures on Wall Street indicated a 7-percent fall at the opening.“[Market players] are concerned that the pandemic will disrupt the global supply chain and eventually slow global GDP [gross domestic product],” said Indonesia Equity Analyst Association (AAEI) chairman Edwin Sebayang on Thursday.The IDX has been rolling out policies to anchor the index, which has been volatile in the past weeks.On Monday, the IDX issued a new auto-rejection regulation that capped stock prices falling to a maximum of 10 percent for stocks at all price ranges from a variation of 20 percent to 35 percent depending on the price range. It also decided to temporarily halt short selling on Monday until further notice to help anchor the index.On Tuesday evening, the bourse issued a new trading suspension regulation. It stipulates that the IDX will halt stock trading for 30 minutes if the main gauge falls by more than 5 percent.If the index keeps falling to more than 10 percent after the first suspension is lifted, the bourse will halt trading for another 30 minutes. Trading will halt for the whole session if the JCI continues to plunge deeper than 15 percent.Previously, the bourse only suspended trading when the index fell by 10 percent.Analysts, however, said the new auto rejection policy did little to prevent the index from falling far deeper.“It’s not effective. It instead adds panic to market players who probably think that tomorrow [Friday] the index will drop deeper so they conduct selling sprees,” said Panin Sekuritas equity analyst William Hartanto. He expected the JCI to move between 4,600 and 5,000 this month.“It’s hard to predict where the bottom is,” said Trimegah Securities head of research and foreign institutional equity Sebastian Tobing. “Cash is king for now.”Topics : This is the first time the IDX suspended stock trading since the 2008 financial crisis. On Oct. 8, 2008, the JCI free fell 10.38 percent to 1,451.67, prompting the bourse to halt trading for two days before resuming activity on Oct. 13.On Thursday, foreign investors dumped Rp 256.6 billion (US$17.5 million) worth of stocks more than they bought, resulting in Rp 7.2 trillion of net sells so far this year. The index itself lost 22.28 percent of its value as of Thursday, the third-worst among its Southeast Asian peers after Thailand and the Philippines.Circuit breakers were also triggered in Thailand and the Philippines after each of their benchmark gauges slumped 10 percent, the most in Asia, Bloomberg reported.The rupiah exchange rate against the greenback depreciated by more than 1 percent to 14,552 on Thursday. Bank Indonesia recorded foreign outflows of Rp 31.76 trillion worth of government bonds and Rp 4.87 trillion worth of stocks so far this year as foreign investors flock to safe-haven assets.last_img read more

Saints eyeing Vilhena and Djuricic

first_img Koeman decided to make those moves after Cork rejected a new contract at Southampton in favour of a deal at Sunday’s opponents Swansea. “For a coach, he is always a player good to have in the squad because he can play in different positions in midfield,” the Saints boss said. “If you look back to the first part of the season, he was not starting. “If I have all the players available, he is not one of the three players in the midfield. “But he is an experienced player and he is a player who knows his situation and when he came into the team he was doing well. “It is always important to have these kind of players for the coach, but, finally, the player has decided not to accept the contract and that means a different situation for the club, for the coach.” Koeman was surprised by the amount of time it took Cork to come to his decision, having first opened discussions two months ago, but understands the player’s decision. “We believe that we offered the player a very good contract and the player told me that it wasn’t about the numbers in the contract,” he added. “It wasn’t about the money, but about his feeling, about maybe not playing enough. “Okay, I can’t guarantee nobody they will play more. It is always competition that you have in your squad.” Cork has been a bedrock at Saints since 2011, with his exit the latest which leaves the team looking vastly different to when Jay Rodriguez and Sam Gallagher last featured. Both have missed the entire campaign to date so far with injury, although the latter is at last closing in on a return. “Sam Gallagher is starting training with the under-21s,” Koeman said. “I think that it is good for the player to start at a little lower level, having been a long-time out of training. “With Jay, there is not any other positive news. He has continued working but I can’t say now that he is two weeks or three weeks or one week closer to team training, no.” Now, the Dutchman is looking to bring in a new player, with his key targets Benfica’s Djuricic – a Serbia international who spent the first half of the season on loan to Mainz – and Vilhena at former club Feyenoord. “On principle we are looking for a player that can play in different positions,” Koeman said. “Okay, we have our interest in Djuricic and he can play one of the positions in midfield, he can play on the left in a wing position in a free role, he can play in the right-wing position in a free role. “That is the best – to bring in a player who can play in different positions. “The case of Vilhena is that the management of the player called me and they were afraid about his situation at Feyenood. “I said ‘okay, I like the player’. First, the player is 20-years-old, he played a lot in Holland, he played 80-85 per cent of all the games in two seasons when I was the coach in Feyenoord. “It is part of our philosophy in the club to have young players. That’s not a risk. “I don’t know what level he will reach, but at least he is now I think at a higher level than most of the under-21 midfielders. That’s always what you look for.” Southampton manager Ronald Koeman wants to bring a utility player in before the transfer deadline, with Tonny Vilhena and Filip Djuricic top of his shopping list. Press Association This month, like so many winter windows before it, has been quiet at St Mary’s, with the loan addition of Eljero Elia the only arrival at the top-four contenders. That is how Koeman had planned to keep it until injuries began to mount and midfielder Jack Cork rejected a new contract in favour of a move to Swansea. last_img read more
