Following a Democrat victory in one of the US Senate (in Georgia), the USD and US Stock futures corrected their gains. The win will allow Joe Biden, President-elect of the United States, to execute his plan.

USDMXN Technical Analysis
Monthly (MN) Chart: Bearish and Bottoming
The USDMXN slumped into the RSI oversold area, following a bullish-Acc support collapse on August 03 ’20 (23.2710).
The bearish descent should continue now that the pair trades in the oversold area and breach the MA10 and MA20 area.
Similarly, a hidden bearish divergence pattern formed on the weekly-TF confirmed the dead cross of the fast MA10 and slow MA20, as the USDMXN used both Moving Averages as resistance.
Daily Time Frame Projections: Bearish and ranging
Daily Resistance Levels: 21.98123, 21.4860, 21.13613, 19.93528
Daily Support Levels: 19.61065
The collapse of bullish-Acc support on October 29, ’20, emphasized the price correction and continuation of the downtrend.
The second break of bullish-Acc support is in place, and we anticipate a continuation of the bearish move on the daily time frame. However, the buildup of bullish divergence on the higher monthly and weekly time frames of the USD Index may give strength to the USD.
The NASDAQ Mexico Index and the Mexico Fund Inc show a stable Mexican Peso from April 2020 to date. We may expect a slowing of the rise, considering the reversal chart patterns on the US Index. Conversely, policies from the newly elect democrat party may bring a prolonged weakness to the Greenback.
Advancing into Q1 2020, we should expect significant volatility in the USDMXN exchange rate.
