USDMXN Technical Analysis
USDMXN Long term Projection: Bullish Swings
USDMXN Monthly Chart
While hovering above the 50 periods Moving Average, the dollar to pesos chart flags a series of hidden bullish divergence patterns on November ’18 and on August ’19.
With the price establishing higher lows, we should expect a return of the upbeat trends. However, a failure of the bullish divergence trend line and the MA-50 may reinforce confidence to buy into the Mexican Peso.
USDMXN Weekly Chart
Following a transition from selling to buying pressure on July 22 ’19, the Greenback soared against the Mexican Peso by roughly 6.4% before plunging towards the MA-50 on September 02.
The MA-50 currently serves as significant support as the dollar to pesos bounce off the level. Last week’s bearish closing price, however, hints a drop in bullish momentum. A breach of the 19.38232 spinning top support may confirm a bearish move.
USDMXN Medium Term Projections: Bearish Swing
Daily Time Frame
Coming down to the daily chart perspective, yesterday’s bullish inside bar price pattern hints weakness on the part of the bulls, and the USDMXN price may go either way from here. A daily rate close above the 19.59369 resistance or the 19.52374 support will serve as a pointer to the trend direction at this level.
The current hidden bullish divergence pattern formed in combination with an exit of the oversold area on the above 4hour time frame shows a highly probable resumption of the bullish trend. However, the collapse of the bullish inclination line will be a big upset into a bearish trend.
The USDMXN trades within a symmetrical triangle on the monthly time frame with the price forming lower highs on June ’18, December ’18, and August ’19. A breakout to the upside is more likely; however, we should look out for surprises on the downside moving forward, especially on the daily and 4hour time frames.
