  • USD/MXN trend still points to the upside, but it is losing momentum
  • Correction limited by 23.00, a slide below would clear the way to more losses.

The USD/MXN reached a fresh monthly high on Tuesday at 23.22 and then pulled back to 22.95. The short-term bias point to the upside, but the momentum is fading, favoring a correction.

The pair again failed at the 23.20 area and also the 55-days simple moving average. A firm break above would target 23.50/55; the next resistance stands at 23.70.

A consolidation of USD/MXN below 23.00 would sign more losses ahead for a potential test the uptrend line, currently at 22.70 that should initially cap the downside. A break lower would negate the bullish outlook. As long as the pair remains above 23.00, another test of 23.20 seems likely.
