“Less certainty over inflation convergence to target due to MXN depreciation, enhanced by uncertainty surrounding NAFTA and the Mexican election, was the key driver.”

“Our base case is that Banxico will now remain on hold before easing in December, however the risk to this view is a potential future (and substantial) MXN-weakening shock due to political/NAFTA uncertainty, which will likely force Banxico to respond with further tightening.”
