Indeks Saham Indonesia Berbinar-binar Songsong Pemilu


Sehari sebelum pemilu legislatif 9 April 2014, indeks harga saham gabungan di Bursa Efek Indonesia (BIE) memang hanya naik sangat tipis 0,315 poin atau 0,007 persen dibandingkan awal pekan ini. Pada hari Senin (7/4), indeks saham naik cukup tajam, 63,095 poin atau 1,299 persen dibandingkan petutupan bursa akhir pekan lalu.

Namun, bila kita bandingkan dengan posisi akhir tahun 2013 (year to date), indeks sudah naik lumayan tinggi, yaitu 15,14 persen. Year on year pun sudah positif walaupun masih kecil sebesar 0,488 persen.

Bila dibandingkan dengan kinerja saham-saham dunia, sungguh saham Indonesia yang paling berbinar-binar. Tak dinyana, per 2 April 2014, kinerja indeks saham Indonesia year to date dalam $ term ternyata paling tinggi di dunia dengan pertumbuhan 22,8 persen. Pencapaian ini mirip dengan yang terjadi pada bulan Mei 2013.

Melihat gelagat ini, sangat boleh jadi dalam beberapa bulan ke depan IHSG bisa menorehkan rekor baru. Rekor sebelumnya adalah 5.214,976 pada 20 Mei 2013.

Pemilu yang damai dan kehadiran pemimpin baru yang dicintai rakyatnya diharapkan tidak hanya mengerek indeks saham, tetapi juga menghembuskan harapan baru bagi percepatan kesejahteraan rakyat yang berkeadilan.
