USD/MXN 240min Chart

Notes: A closer look at price action highlights interim resistance at 18.7837/85 where the monthly open converges on the 61.8% retracement of the April advance. We’ll reserve this level as our near-term bearish invalidation with a break lower targeting subsequent support objectives at 18.4682 & 18.3000. Keep in mind we get the release of the minutes from the latest FOMC policy decision later today and unemployment data out of Mexico on Friday.
