The empirical analysis choose were Unit Root test, Johansen Cointegration test, Granger Causality test and Vector Error Correction Model. The result for inflation and exchange rate to GOP was not significant as well as GOP does not Granger cause inflation, exchange rate and stock prices. While for stock prices, there is unidirectional result from stock prices to GOP. This means the economic growth is affected by the fluctuation of stock prices whereas the stock prices are not suggested to predict the growth of GOP. In conclusion, the stock price is a good economic indicator to be emphasized by the Government financial policy to stabilize the economic growth.
