Jakarta Stock Exchange was the first stock exchange in Indonesia. On December 1, 2007, Surabaya Stock Exchange was merged into Jakarta Stock Exchange, and the combined entity was named the Indonesia Stock Exchange.

History

The Jakarta Stock Exchange (JSX) was opened in 1912 by the Dutch East Indies government as the Batavia Stock Exchange (Jakarta was previously called Batavia). It was closed off and on during World Wars I and II, then re-activated in 1977 by President Soeharto, under the management of the Capital Market Supervisory Agency. JSX launched the Jakarta Automated Trading System in 1995. It began implementing a remote trading system in 2002. [1]
