  • SEC Chair Gensler: - Working with Congress on crypto would help - A large number of crypto investors could be harmed
  • Pre-FOMC US Dollar Price Action Setups: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY
  • The big question is whether the Fed announces taper tomorrow or whether they punt that announcement to the November rate decision, waiting for employment data to improve to the point of ‘significant further progress. More market update from @JStanleyFX :
  • SEC Chair Gensler: - The market is in a better position to absorb global shocks - Securities rules give the SEC great power over crypto
  • feels like we haven't had one of these in quite a while Pre-FOMC Price Action Setups, starting right at 1pm, top of the hour 1. USD PA setups 2. Evergrande worries 3. Stonks - fly or die?
  • That all said, staying patient and not chasing is prudent here imo. Tomorrow will likely be better for assessing short-term directional bias (China markets open again following holiday, post-FOMC).
  • Also, S&P Global put out a report overnight that said China would likely step in to curb “far-reaching contagion” re: Evergrande. The House is scheduled to vote on a stopgap funding bill Tuesday, which might be alleviating some investor angst around the debt ceiling as well.
  • Encouraging we recoiled higher off yesterday’s closing level. Could the pre-FOMC drift be at work? Markets were priced for potential hawkish shift and increased odds of taper timeline announcement. Perhaps seeing an unwind of that in light of recent market developments.

USD/MXN Price: US Dollar vs Mexican Peso – Unfinished Uptrend Momentum

USD/MXN Price: US Dollar vs Mexican Peso – Unfinished Uptrend Momentum

USD vs MXN Technical Forecast

  • Bulls eased up, yet still in charge
  • Levels and signals to monitor

USD/MXN – Bulls Pullback

On Friday, USD/MXN peaked at 19.895- its highest level in nearly six months. The market retreated after, as some bulls seemed to cut back. Yet, the pair closed the weekly candlestick in the green with 3.6% gain. On Monday, more bulls eased up allowing the price to fall further.

Alongside that, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) abandoned overbought territory highlighting weaker uptrend momentum.

USD/MXN DAILY PRICE CHART (Nov 7– MAr 4, 2020) Zoomed In

From the daily chart, we noticed that last week USD/MXN opened with a breakaway gap to the upside signalling bear’s hesitation. Later, bulls took charge and rallied the market to multi- month high.

This week, the market opened with another upward gap (runaway gap) signalling that bullish momentum is far from finished. Yesterday, the price rebounded from the low end of current trading zone, 19.153 – 19.471 then closed with a long legged Doji pattern, reflecting the market indecision at this stage.

A close below the low end of the zone indicates bull’s reluctance. This could lead some of them to exit the market sending the price towards 18.802. Further close below this level opens the door for bears to take over and possibly press towards 18.404. In that scenario, the daily and weekly support levels and area marked on the chart (zoomed in) should be kept in focus, as some traders may exit/join the market around these points.

In turn, a close above the high end of the zone may cause a rally towards 19.862. Further close above that level could mean more bullishness towards 20.258. Having said that, the daily and weekly resistance levels underscored on the chart should be watched closely.

USD/MXN four hour PRICE CHART (Jan 6 – Mar 4, 2020)

USDMXN four hour price chart 04-03-20

Looking at the four- hour chart, we notice that on Monday USD/MXN broke below the neckline of double top pattern located at 18.481, eyeing a test of 19.090. The price rebounded from the low end of current trading zone discussed above on the daily chart then rallied. Yet, failed to negate the pattern as stayed below the neckline level signalling bulls’ hesitation.

Thus, a break above 19.520 could lead the pair towards 19.642. Although, the daily resistance level underlined on the chart should be considered. On the flip-side, a break below 19.127 could send USDMXN towards 19.027. Nonetheless, the support level printed on the chart would be worth monitoring.

See the chart to figure out more about key levels to monitor in a further bullish/bearish move.
