JAKARTA (TheInsiderStories) — Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) released a new reference index on Monday (01/21), called IDX80. It contains 80 most market-liquid shares in the Jakarta Composite Index (JCI). The calculation of IDX80 is based on free-float ratio to market capitalisation.

According to the official statement, the recent IDX80 stocks will be applied until July 2019. While the stocks calculation is based on February-April period of time.

Third, the self regulation organization chooses 80 stocks by considering the stocks liquidity, transaction value, transaction frequency, active trading days, free-float shares, and market capitalisation. Not only that, company’s financial performance and compliance are also made the consideration.
The local stock exchange aims to encourage investment increase in the market from the new index. So far, stocks daily average trade seems moving stagnant.
