"A rise to 6209 in yesterday's trading indicates that the index is starting to hold above the support target range of 6,193-6,208. The movement of the index today seems to be good in early trading despite interspersed by a slight weakening," said Reza Priyambada, an analyst at PT Binaartha Parama Sekuritas, in Jakarta, Wednesday (28/03/2018).
