- Mexican Peso updated technical trade levels – Weekly & Daily Charts
- USD/MXN rally stalls at fresh record highs- pullback poised to close below resistance
- Broader long-bias at risk near-term below confluence uptrend resistance / 2017 high
The Mexican Peso posted the fourth consecutive weekly loss against the US Dollar with the losses accelerating this week amid rising fears over the Coronavirus global pandemic. The rally failed at fresh record highs this week with price set to close just below key resistance, well off the highs. These are the updated targets and invalidation levels that matter on the USD/MXN weekly technical chart. Review my latest Strategy Webinar for an in-depth breakdown the setupswe’re tracking this week.
Mexican Peso Price Chart – USD/MXN Weekly
Notes:In my last Mexican Peso Price Outlook we noted that USD/MXN rally had, “responded to a key technical confluence and the immediate USD/MXN rally may be vulnerable IF prices closes below up-slope resistance.” Price registered an intra-week high 22.9434 before reversing sharply on Thursday with USD/MXN trading just below ahead of the New York close on Friday. This week marks the largest weekly range / advance since November 2016 with price deep in overbought territory.
That said, the immediate focus is on the weekly close with respect to confluence resistance at 22.0345/76- a region defined by the 100% extension of the 2017 advance, the 2017 swing high and converges on pitchfork resistance. A close below this would leave the immediate advance vulnerable with initial weekly support eyed at the 38.2% retracement of the 2020 range at 21.2546. Broader bullish invalidation rests at the 2018 high-week close at 20.6104. A breach / close higher keeps the focus on the upper parallel (red) around ~23.3500 backed by the 1.618% extension at 24.2050.
Bottom line: The focus remains on this key uptrend resistance confluence with the risk mounting for an exhaustion pullback IF price closes below these levels. From a trading standpoint, a good spot to reduce long-exposure / raise protective stops. Be on the lookout for possible topside exhaustion next week- ultimately a larger pullback 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.
