Focus Chart of the Day: USD/MXN

Price & Time: USD/MXN - Still Up In The Air

USD continues to perplex. The FXCM dollar basket USDOLLAR has struggled with a Fibonacci retracement at 12,050, but it has also failed to exhibit any real negative technical action whenever it has failed at resistance. Another chart that typifies the uncertainty in the dollar is USD/MXN. As we highlighted a couple of weeks ago (read here), the exchange rate peaked out during an interesting cyclical window as it came right around 3.14 years from the 2012 high (the closing high for July actually came within one trading day of an exact relationship). It is still up in the air as to just how important this peak is. It could just be a relatively minor pause before another run higher or it could be the start of a much deeper setback. Last month’s low around 16.0000 looks important in this regard as a move below there would suggest that the exchange rate is embarking on a more important move lower. Strength through 16.4900 would obviously invalidate the burgeoning negative cycle path and set the stage for another leg higher in USD/MXN.
