Factors Causing the Weakening of the Rupiah

The rupiah exchange rate against the dollar is always changing, sometimes it weakens, sometimes it can strengthen.




Why it can be weak and strong of course both have their own reasons, but this time we will discuss the causes of the weakening of the rupiah.


The weakening of the rupiah exchange rate causes the prices of goods to rise, in addition to having an impact on basic needs, it can also have an impact on transportation prices which can also increase.


The investment strategy undertaken can also be affected by the weakening of the rupiah exchange rate, because some investment instruments are largely determined by the value of the rupiah.


Sometimes the rupiah may strengthen, but this is not directly proportional to the dollar which is getting stronger and suppresses the rupiah.


Although business growth in Indonesia is growing, it is not enough to help the economy improve. The following are some of the factors causing the weakening of the rupiah against the dollar.


1. America's economy is booming


 This factor is very influential with the weakening of the rupiah exchange rate, to restore the US economy after the 2008 crisis, making the central bank in America, namely the Fed, plans to carry out a system called tappering off or quantitative reduction. This easing is known as economic stimulus.


This plan was continued and in 2013 made the US dollar strengthen in the global arena, so that the supply of dollar money would decrease.


The opposite effect is experienced by Indonesia as a developing country, but Indonesia is very easily depreciated by the influence of foreign currencies that suppress it.


In addition, the rupiah is a soft currency, meaning that the rupiah is very sensitive to the international economy.


2. Pressured by the Fed


The Fed as the central bank of the United States has plans to cut and limit bond purchases in 2013, the exchange rate of the rupiah and the JCI, which is often referred to as the composite stock index, fluctuated very sharply with each other.


This will certainly have a major impact on the American economy because the road to recovery will seriously disrupt the world's financial traffic.


3. The sluggishness and decline of Indonesia's export commodities


The decline in demand for export goods from various parts of the world will cause the Indonesian economy to be disrupted.


In short, if the number of exports decreases, the rupiah will weaken. What the government must immediately do to improve the rupiah is to increase the demand for world exports.


If export demand falls further, the trade balance will also deteriorate.


4. Imports of goods are getting higher


When the demand for export goods decreases, it is inversely proportional to the increase in demand for imported goods from abroad. This is the fault of the people themselves who trust foreign goods more than their own domestic products.


In fact, if we understand that domestic goods are no less good in quality than foreign goods, moreover there are not many foreign producers who make their goods using raw materials from Indonesia.


If imports continue to increase, the economy will weaken and the rupiah exchange rate will continue to decline. If this happens, people often complain and blame the government because Indonesia's financial condition is in shock but still consumes foreign-made goods.


In fact, according to research, consumption of imported goods made abroad has increased over the past six years and has kept the domestic balance under pressure.

Motorcycle Spare Parts That Must Be Replaced

Know the automatic motor components that must be replaced regularly.




Motorcycle Spare Parts That Must Be Replaced Regularly – Automatic motorbikes are now a popular vehicle for many people.


The practicality and efficiency of using automatic motorcycles are the main factors that make people in the country prefer motorized vehicles with this automatic transmission.


Even though it's easy to use, you can't use it right away. That is, there must be steps to take care of the automatic motor that you have to do.


In addition to routine service and oil changes, of course you need to know that there are automatic motor components that must be replaced regularly.


Bearing in mind, some of these automatic motorcycle parts have a lifetime which of course must be replaced with new ones. Although, under normal circumstances or can be used.


Replacement components on this automatic motor usually have to be replaced when it reaches a certain period of time. Where, 5 years of service life is the ideal time to replace some critical parts.


Now for more clarity and detail, below Mas Sena will share information related to automatic motorcycle spare parts that must be replaced when the service life reaches 5 years. Let's see the full review together.


Matic Motor Components That Must Be Replaced Periodically

In practice, replacing components on an automatic motor is one of the maintenance steps that you must do. Then, what spare parts need to be replaced? Here's the explanation.


Motor Matic Spare Part Component Maintenance


Motorcycle Tires


The first component you should pay attention to for replacement is the motorcycle tire itself.


Actually the tire is a component whose replacement is quite long compared to other components.


However, as an important component related to driving comfort, of course, it is recommended to change tires regularly.


Try not to change the tire yourself until the surface is flat or bare so as not to slip when passing through slippery road terrain.


Although fairly trivial, it's a good idea to replace these components regularly and regularly. Preferably, the replacement can be done once a year or if it is felt that the tire surface has started to go bald.


And, don't forget to use quality tires. It is recommended to use tubeless tires which of course will be much safer and more effective.


Spark Plug Replacement


In addition, the spare part on the scooter that you must replace regularly is the spark plug. Which is indeed one of the vital components in the combustion process.


You need to understand that the normal condition of the motor's spark plugs will certainly greatly affect or have an impact on the engine performance process. This of course cannot be separated from the role of the spark plug itself as the main component in the ignition process of the automatic motor.


In this case, the main task of these spark plugs is to start a fire or burn. Combustion is done by mixing air and fuel.


For self-replacement, manufacturers generally recommend a replacement period after the motor has traveled 20,000 Km.


It's just that the achievement of this distance is for normal spark plug conditions. Moreover, for some cases, for example, the spark plug is damaged even though it has not reached that distance, you have to replace the new spark plug.


Therefore, you should regularly check the condition of the spark plugs. If you feel the automatic motor feels tight when running, you should check the state of the spark plug. Given, the possibility of an underpowered motor engine condition can be triggered due to a problem with the spark plug component itself.


Matic Motorcycle Brake Pads


Brake pads on automatic motorcycles are also one of the few spare parts that you must replace regularly and periodically.


Because, the function of the brake lining is of course an attempt to control or reduce the speed of the motor while driving. Thus, safety or accidents can be avoided.
