USDMXN Technical Analysis

The first thing we should note is that USDMXN is now close to its 20, 50 and 100 day averages, located at 20.0742, 19.9798 and 20.4431 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 50 day average, which is 159.7 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 50 day simple moving average turned upwards, which may be a bullish sign. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving down. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going up, exists on the 30 day timeframe. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 14 days USDMXN’s price has gone down 8 them. And for candlestick traders, a special treat: there is a pin bar pattern showing up on the charts as well. Rejoice!
