Why not "The price will not rise by twofold" ?

"by" twofold is incorrect. "The price will not rise twofold" is correct. Also we'd more commonly say "The price will not double"; the action of "rising" is implicit. But I agree with translating the Indonesian as literally as possible for the purposes of learning.
