USD/MXN Technical Analysis

Notably, USD/MXN is now close to its 100 day averages, located at 22.2024 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 100 day average, which is 3590 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 14 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going up, exists on the 90 day timeframe. For additional context, note that price has gone down 9 out of the past 14 days. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
