Focus Chart of the Day: USD/MXN

Price & Time: When Does the USD Trend Resume?

Last week we witnessed a nice convergence of cyclical relationships in USD/MXN. The uptrend in the exchange rate has stalled around this time barrier, but so far downside price action has been less than impressive. A close in the next day or so under 13.5000 is really needed to confirm that some sort of high is place. On the topside, the 61.8% retracement of the 2012/2013 range near 13.5800 is critical resistance as a close over this level would invalidate the near-term negative cyclical potential. More importantly such an easy push through this “time resistance” would further validate the strength of the trend in place since June and set the stage for an important push higher in USD/MXN into December.
