USDMXN: Technical Analysis
USDMXN Long term Overview: Bullish Correction
As usual, we follow a top-down analysis approach to identify potential reversal patterns and levels on the USDMXN chart.
Last month, the dollar to pesos exchange rate closed bearish, trading around the MA-50 support and the breakout support of August 01 ’19. A price recoil back to the upside is expected at this level, for a stronger US dollar.
The weekly chart also shows a chance of the Mexican peso losing its grip on the Greenback as the pair trades within a cluster of bullish support levels.
The bullish engulfing candlestick pattern lends an earlier insight into a bullish price hike. A bullish closing price within the high/low range of the previous week may increase the exchange rate.

The bullish candlestick pattern on November 05 is a good entry signal to time the bottom into the bullish harmonic pattern illustrated below.
Failure of the 19.01728 support would nullify our bias hinged on a bullish rally.
Although the 4hour time frame appears to be in a range-bound market formation, we notice a rejection of resistance levels on October 28, 09:00, and November 04 at 10:00.
A bullish closing bar above the recent bearish inside-bar candlestick pattern will point to a further increase in the price to favor the USD.
The technical levels show more of optimism towards a stronger Greenback and a weak Mexican Peso in the coming months. If this holds true, we look forward to a price projection of 20.16605 towards the end of the year.
