Abstract

This paper examines the effect of the BI rate announcements on financial markets in Indonesia. The estimation results show that interbank interest rates with overnight, 1-week, and 1-month maturity are significantly lower a day before the announcement of lower BI-rate. On the other hand, the levels of exchange rate return, stock return, or government bond’s yield are not significantly affected by BI-rate announcements. The announcements of lower or constant BI-rate significantly bring down volatility of interbank interest rate with overnight, 1-week, and 1-month maturity, as well as the volatility of government bonds’ yield, exchange rate return and stock returns. The largest effect of BI rate announcement is experienced by overnight interbank interest rate, both in terms of level as well as in terms of volatility.
