Foreign exchange reserves in Indonesia fell to $98.1 billion in June from $105.2 billion the previous month, the central bank governor said on Friday.
Rising concerns among foreign investors over a ballooning current account deficit and the Fed's stimulus led to a heavy sell off in the country's bond, capital and forex markets.
Central bank governor Agus Martowardojo also told a news conference that July inflation was expected at 2.38 percent month-on-month. Inflation was seen between 7.2-7.8 percent this year.

HANOI, July 5 - Vietnam's benchmark VN Index <.VNI> closed down 0.32 percent on Friday as foreigners sold in some big caps and other investors stayed on the sidelines, traders said.
PetroVietnam Gas, the biggest company by capitalisation, fell 1.7 percent. Property firm Hoang Anh Gia Lai dropped 1.4 percent and Eximbank lost 0.7 percent.
Analysts recommended investors wait for company earnings to be released and say the market is risky at present as foreign trading was unpredictable.
