  • The S&P 500 have taken a clear dive to start the week and fear of full risk aversion is gaining traction. DailyFX's @JohnKicklighter discusses what to expect in the markets this week!
  • $USD still pulling back from resistance. 93.43 was the Q1 swing high, still playing a role in $DXY support potential around prior res, ~93.20
  • despite the theatrics elsewhere, $Gold has held last week's low through this week's open, at least so far even getting a bump higher. resistance potential 1769-1775 $GC $GLD
  • While there is no doubt a risk aversion wave at play now, it can still burn itself out with years of complacency and the expectations of Fed on Wed (anticipation can take the wind out of sails). But if/when the Dollar takes off pre-FOMC, that would be.

  • There are reasonable disputes over where technical boundaries exist from people with different views, charts, time frames, etc. I think this $SPX gap down and drive below the 50-day SMA clearly qualifies as a break

Dollar vs Mexican Peso Price Outlook: USD/MXN Breakout High in Place?

Dollar vs Mexican Peso Price Outlook: USD/MXN Breakout High in Place?

Mexican Peso Technical Price Outlook: USD/MXN Trade Levels

  • Mexican Peso updated technical trade levels – Weekly Chart
  • USD/MXN posts weekly reversal off long-term uptrend resistance
  • Risk for a deeper correction while below 24.8205.

The Mexican Peso surged more than 6.5% vs the US Dollar last week with USD/MXN posting a massive outside weekly-reversal off multi-year uptrend resistance. The Dollar is paring a portion of the decline early in the week but the threat of a larger correction in the days ahead remains. These are the updated targets and invalidation levels that matter on the USD/MXN weekly price chart. Review my latest Strategy Webinar for an in-depth breakdown of the setupswe’re tracking this week.

Mexican Peso Price Chart - USD/MXN Weekly

Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Technical Strategist; USD/MXN on Tradingview

Notes: In my last Mexican Peso Price Outlook we noted that USD/MXN had, “responded to a key technical confluence and the immediate USD/MXN rally may be vulnerable while below up-slope resistance.” The level in focus was 25.4474/5466 – a region defined by pitchfork resistance, the March high and the 200% extension of the 2017 advance. The rally registered a high at 25.7782 before marking an outside-day reversal with price posting an outside weekly reversal off confluence resistance last week.

USD/MXN opened the week just above slope support at the 38.2% parallel with price poised to mark yet another outside day reversal today- this time, to the topside. While we may see more upside on this relief rally, the broader risk remains for a deeper setback while below the 61.8% retracement of monthly range at 24.8205. Weekly open support rests at 23.2710 backed by 23.0065.Ultimately, a break below the median-line / 2017 high at 22.0376 would be needed to suggest a more significant high was set last week.

Bottom line: USD/MXN has reversed off uptrend resistance and the risk remains for a deeper correction while below 24.8205. From a trading standpoint, be on the lookout topside exhaustion on this recovery with a break below the weekly open needed to fuel the next leg lower in price. Ultimately a larger setback may offer more favorable long-entries closer to uptrend support. I’ll publish an updated Mexican Peso Price Outlook once we get further clarity on the near-term USD/MXN technical trade levels.
