USD/MXN Price Outlook: Mexican Peso Eyes Banxico Rate Decision

USD/MXN Price Outlook: Mexican Peso Eyes Banxico Rate Decision

Rich Dvorak, Analyst

MEXICAN PESO FORECAST: USD/MXN PRICE ACTION LOOKS TO BANXICO INTEREST RATE DECISION

  • Mexican Peso is on the radar headed into the Banxico interest rate decision due Thursday
  • USD/MXN price action has drifted sideways to form a trading range between 19.80-20.30
  • Dollar-Peso could see some volatility around the release of US inflation data also on tap

The Mexican Peso has largely lacked direction against its US Dollar peer over the last four weeks. USD/MXN price action has carved out a relatively tight trading range as a result, but this sideways trend could soon change with currency volatility likely to accelerate. High-impact event risk facing the Dollar-Peso, which is outlined on the DailyFX Economic Calendar, includes the upcoming release of US inflation data in addition to the Banxico rate decision. These fundamental catalysts stand to weigh notably on the direction of USD/MXN price action.

USD/MXN might respond positively to higher-than-expected US inflation data and corresponding rise in Treasury yields. This might bring last week’s high around 20.300 into focus for US Dollar bulls, which is also underscored by the 100-day simple moving average. A disappointing print on inflation could send USD/MXN price action recoiling lower, however. Looking to the other side of the equation, the Mexican Peso has potential to strengthen if Banxico stands pat on rates and officials drop hints of another cut coming later this year. This could come on the back of Mexico inflation hitting 6% year-over-year in April.

As such, there could be a scenario where USD/MXN price action plummets to contend with the zone of technical support around 19.500-19.800. Invalidating this support level could subsequently bring 2020 swing lows around 18.500 into focus for USD/MXN bears. Conversely, continued caution by Banxico likely stands to keep Mexican Peso bulls at bay and year-to-date lows intact.
