Today's Global Economic Update: Germany's trade surplus was little changed, at EUR 22.1B in April compared to EUR 22.2B in March, coming in below forecasts. Exports increased 1.6%, while imports increased by 2.0%. Despite the growth in exports, a decline in industrial production in April points to a slow recovery in Germany's manufacturing sector.

☒️ Deal of the Day: ITM, a German radiopharmaceutical biotech company, raised $204.4M to develop its radiopharmaceutical pipeline.

🌴 Indonesia Stock Index Up 5%

HolonIQ’s Indonesia Index has seen a 7% decrease over the past three months. Despite relatively stable inflation, an unexpected 25 bps interest rate hike in April aimed at stabilizing the Rupiah caused uncertainties, leading to a decline in stock prices, and negatively impacting the index. Geopolitical tensions, global economic changes, and lingering COVID-19 effects have weakened the Indonesian Rupiah to over 16,000 IDR per USD. Perry Warjiyo, Governor of Bank Indonesia, indicated that the currency is expected to stabilize within the range of 15,300 to 15,700 per dollar next year. Despite the challenges posed by high interest rates, potential stabilization of the currency and ongoing efforts to bolster Indonesia's commodities sector are expected to enhance investor confidence, likely leading to growth in the index in the future.
