USDMXN Outlook & Technical Analysis for binary options

Mexico Fundamentals 

Mexico Business Sentiment Continues to recover. The Mexican manufacturing sector has continued to see a steady increase in performance from the low of 38.3% to a high of 38.7% after easing the coronavirus lockdown restriction amid the pandemic. 

However, the 50 mark threshold and above signifies expansion within the manufacturing factories while below 50 shows contraction in the manufacturing system.

U.S. Non-farm Employment Change: 

Forecast 1510K, Previous 4800K

The Labor Department is responsible for the data collated during July, they report on the numbers of new jobs within that period.

Some analyst believes that the outcome is not the true reflection on the data because of the pandemic containment measures put in place during the second wave of the coronavirus.

If the outcome of data is higher than the forecast, it is suitable for the US currency, but if it is below the expected result, then it is bearish for the US currency.

Bullish Scenario:

A bullish scenario is building upon the H4 and daily time frames. If we get a close above the initial resistance, it will take the price to other resistance levels of 07 July and 30 June 2020 on the H4 trading platform.

Bearish Scenario:

For the bears to continue its rampage to the downside, it needs to close below the daily support level of 21.47879 to overturn the psychological zone into a resistance to favour the bears.

However, the primary trend is still bearish on the daily and weekly time frame. We shall observe the price reaction in the new week of a new month to know how the Mexican peso will behave.


Mexico is among the Latin Americans with many affected cases of the second wave of the coronavirus.

If this week’s non-farm employment claims are not favourable for the US, we may see another fall in the coming days.
