USD/MXN at support ahead of Banxico

FX:USDMXN   U.S. Dollar / Mexican Peso
USD/MXN has been moving lower since April 2020 in a descending triangle . On a weekly timeframe , the pair found a zone of support between 19.5491 and 20.0338. USD/MXN bounced a number of times and tested the top downward sloping trendline of the channel, failing each time. As USD/MXN nears the apex of the triangle, is it ready to break lower? On May 30th, the pair pierced the low and made it to 19.4116 but bounced right back into the range. This week, the pair traded as low as 19.4310.

If USD/MXN breaks 19.4116, there is a confluence of support at the bottom trendline of the pair’s recent channel and the lows from February 2020 near 18.5235. Resistance sits above at 19.7530 and 20.0000.

Expectations are that the Bank of Mexico (Banxico) is expected to hike rates by 75bps to bring the rate to 10%. If Banxico hikes by more than 75bps and is hawkish, watch for USD/MXN to break lower!
