Last Updated on October 8, 2020

USDMXN Outlook & Technical Analysis for binary options


There’s an increase in demand for the Mexican Peso in the last couple of weeks as the bulls take profits off the USDMXN. 

We expect to see an extension of the bearish trend in the coming week.

 Let’s move on to analyze the charts and understand the key patterns at play.

Mexico GDP

It is one of the most comprehensive ways of determining the level of activity in an economy, including the strength and shape of a countries economy.

GDP is an evaluation of the change or the difference in the inflation-adjusted value of all goods and services generated via the country’s’ economy annually. 

A reading higher than anticipated means bullish for the currency. In contrast, a reading less than expected means bearish for the Mexican Peso.

Data released most recently on February 25 suggests that a bullish sentiment is imminent for the MXN as the previous reading is -0.3, while forecast reading is -0.4%, while the actual reading is -0.50%.

U.S. New Home Sales

The New Home Sales report is an evaluation of the number of fresh single-family homes traded in the previous month. The New Home Sales index is an annualized report and appears to have more impact when published before the Existing Home Sales report since both reports are tightly correlated.

A reading higher than anticipated means bullish for the currency. In contrast, a reading less than expected is seen as bearish for the U.S. dollar.

Data released most recently on March 24 suggests that bullish sentiment is imminent for the USD as the forecast reading is 765K, previous readings read 800K, while the actual reading is 750K.

The pair trades below the monthly open price after last week’s close showing a slowing of bullish momentum. Now might be a good time to lock in some profits, or perhaps activate some form of trailing stop order.

The world reserve currency (US dollar) still serves as a haven against uncertainties that comes with the coronavirus outbreak, as  traders and investors around the globe would rather have their funds saved till the market crash slows down.

To wrap up the analysis, we maintain a bullish outlook in the long term going forward. However, the shorter-term time frames suggest a bearish trend into the first half of the week.
