USDMXN Long term Overview: Rang Bound
USDMXN: Technical Analysis
The USDMXN trades within two major horizontal channels. The first being the Jan 02 ’17 (22.04012) resistance – Jul 03 ’17 (17.45165) support, and second channel is the Nov 01 ’18 (20.63584) – Mar 01 ’19 (18.74686) support.
So far, an attempt to close below the 18.74686 support level failed as the pair entered the oversold area on the weekly time frame.
Coming down to the weekly time frame, the Mexican Peso showed strength after the bears drove the dollar to pesos exchange rate below a hidden bullish divergence trend line that coincide with the 200-weekly MA. This sent the pair into the oversold area and still shows a bearish outlook despite a short term bottoming on Jan 20 ’20.
The pair approaches the MA-200, a formal support that we now believe to be a significant resistance level.
An exit of the oversold area in combination with a close above the MA-200 should be the signal needed by the bulls to drive the price further up.
USDMXN Medium Term Projections: Bearish
Daily Time Frame
Here on the daily chart, we uncover the pattern responsible for the price bottoming mentioned at the monthly overview, which happens to be a regular bullish divergence setup.
The bearish trend started after a collapse of bullish support (19.52546), slumped by 4.05% from the breakdown point and sprang back up from the divergence support.
As mentioned in our last analysis of the USDMXN, the bullish divergence setup did confirm a mid-term price bottoming that may perhaps transition into a long-term bullish move, should certain resistance levels get breached.
A slowing of the bullish move is expected as the price trades around the daily and weekly MA resistance.
