Broad money (M2), as a measure of liquidity in the economy, posted slower growth in November 2018. M2 was recorded at Rp5,670.0 trillion in the reporting period, with growth decelerating to 6.6% (yoy) from 7.2% (yoy) the month earlier on the back of M1 and quasi-money, which declined respectively from 6.3% (yoy) and 7.6% (yoy) to 5.0% (yoy) and 7.1% (yoy).

Based on the affecting factor, a decline in Net Foreign Assets (NFA) coupled with slower Net Domestic Asset (NDA) growth contributed to flatter M2 growth in the reporting period. NFA experienced a deeper contraction in November 2018, declined to -2.4% (yoy) from -0.7% (yoy) in the previous period, while NDA growth decreased from 10.4% (yoy) to 10.0% (yoy). NDA growth was constrained by a deeper contraction of net claims on the central government from -3.3% (yoy) to -3.5% (yoy) in November 2018. In addition, outstanding loans disbursed by the banking industry posted weaker growth in the reporting period, falling from 13.1% (yoy) to 11.9% (yoy).
