The Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) is planning to "rehearse" new trading hours at the beginning of February to ensure it can change to the new hours can be completed by the middle of this year, a top executive says.

IDX president director Ito Warsito said Wednesday that the "rehearsal" would be organized over the weekend sometime around the end of February or early March, and that it would involve brokers, the Central Securities Depository and the stock market clearing house.

"The trial is aimed at understanding potential technical glitches because trading activities are related to computer systems," he said in Jakarta.

The bourse currently opens at 9:30 a.m. and closes at 4 p.m.
