The results of the regression analysis have also shown that there is significant impact that oil price levels have on the issuance of the conventional bonds and issuance of Islamic bonds (sukuk). The results of the t-test showed that the the significant value is less than 0.05, therefore, it can be said that the oil prices have a significant impact on the issuance of the conventional bond and the Islamic bonds.
