IDX to Enhance Indonesia’s Capital Markets

Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) will enhance capital markets by launching new ETFs, futures, and structured warrant products by the end of the year, according to an official statement.

One of the main goals of IDX is to rebuild and modernize its stock option contract trading infrastructure. The regulator has suspended stock option trading while it improves its infrastructures and optimizes stock option contract trading services. Once the upgrade is complete, institutional investors will be able to trade stop option contracts on IDX’s trading floor in a modern fashion.

IDX will be supported by Indonesia Financial Services Authority (OJK), Indonesia Clearing and Guarantee Corporation (KPEI), and Indonesia Central Securities Depository (KSEI) to increase the variety of investment products available in Indonesia’s capital markets.

In December 2021, IDX adjusted the requirements for companies applying to go public with hopes to entice technology companies for IPOs. Under the new rules, profitability and net tangible assets are no longer the main financial measures for enterprises seeking ticker symbols.
