• The Mexican peso posts its biggest weekly gain, 2.39%.
  • Market sentiment is mixed; the greenback rallies but falls vs. risk-sensitive currencies.
  • USD/MXN Price Forecast: Neutral, but a daily close under the 200-DMA would expose the pair under downward pressure.

The Mexican peso extends its weekly rally gains 2.39% vs. the US Dollar, despite a mixed market mood, on Friday’s New York session. At the time of writing, the USD/MXN is trading at 20.4218.

European and US equity markets fluctuate between gainers and losers. At the same time, the greenback remains bid, with the US Dollar Index, a gauge of the greenback’s value against a basket of peers, is up 0.34%, sitting at 98.31, faltering of weighing on the USD/MXN pair.

USD/MXN Price Forecast: Technical outlook

The USD/MXN is neutral biased and is probing the 200-day moving average (DMA), sitting at 20.4125. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is at 41.50, beneath the 50-midline, aiming lower, suggesting the USD/MXN might be moving towards the February 23 YTD low at 20.1558, but it would find some hurdles on the way south.

If that scenario plays out, the USD/MXN’s first support would be the 200-DMA. Breach of the latter would expose 20.3117, which once cleared would pave the way towards February 23 daily low at 20.1558.

Upwards, the USD/MXX first resistance would be the 20.50 mark. A decisive break would expose the 50-DMA at 20.5667, followed by January 28 daily high at 20.9130 and then 21.00.
