The results shows the flow of foreign capital positively affect the Jakarta Composite Index (JCI) but not the rate of Rupiah. Using Vector Error Correction Model, this paper finds a cointegrated and dynamic relationship between the changes in foreign capital flow in Indonesia, with the JCI and the exchange rate of Rupiah against USD. Changes in the Rupiah’s rate significantly affect the foreign capital flow and the JCI, while the JCI does not significantly affect the flow of foreign capital and the changes of Rupiah’s rate.
