Based on the DMO bond flow data as of 5-Aug, the biggest net buyer in the conventional bond auction on 3-Aug was still onshore banks at Rp19.6tn, followed by foreign investors at Rp6.9tn—the biggest foreign buying so far this year. Meanwhile, BI and institutional non-banks did net buys of only Rp3.5tn and Rp3.9tn, respectively. Thus, BI has already bought government bonds in the primary market (including sukuk) totaling Rp130.6tn YTD or only 20.2% of total issuances through auction and bought Rp5.7tn in the secondary market.
