Indonesia is one of largest users of sharia-based compliant recently which bring into many concerns how the sharia stocks listing in the most valuable sharia stocks index in Indonesia perform and correlate with other variables, particularly exchange rates. The study aims to analysis the causal relationship and to forecast the performances of sharia-based stocks and its Islamic index in Indonesia along with the volatility of exchange rate. Vector Autoregressive (VAR) model is applied as the method to analyse the multivariate time series as it is believed as the suitable model in predicting such time-series data in the scope of multivariate variables. The finding suggests VAR(1) model is the fitted model as such to both analyse its dynamic relationship and forecast the data set for the next 24 weeks. While the prediction shows the JII has an increasing data, both ANTM and EXR are predicted to have a stable volatility. In addition, granger causality defines variables to have effect in its respective variables, and IRF describes the shocks in one variable cause another variable is relatively difficult in reaching its zero condition in short-term period.
