Activities in the capital market are always linked to the stock price index. If there is a large movement in the stock index in a country, then the surrounding countries that are still in one regional region will be affected. This study aims to determine the effect of the Asia Composite Index on the Indonesia Composite Index in 2018. The results show that together the Nikkei 225 (N225), the Hang Seng Index (HIS), the Shanghai Composite Index (SSE), the Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KS11) and Taiwan Capitalization Weighted Stock Index (TAIEX) have an effect on the Indonesia / Jakarta Composite Index (JKSE) of 80.17%. While partially N225 have negative effects on the JKSE but the SSE and the TAIEX have positive effects on the JKSE. The HIS and the KS11 have no effect on the JKSE. The suggestion for this research is that stakeholders always pay attention to the movements of the global Asian index, especially the N225 in Japan, the SSE in China and the TAIEX in Taiwan.
