Data processing uses SPSS-25 which includes Classical Assumption Test, Multiple Linear Regression, Coefficient of Determination Test, and t-test. The findings of current study prove that both FDI and FPI have a favorable and statistically significant influence on the development of stock market capitalization in Indonesia.
