USD/MXN Technical Analysis

Coming into today USD/MXN is now close to its 20 and 50 day moving averages, which may act as price barrier for the asset. 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 20 day average, which is 2496.6 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving down over that time. Price action traders in particular will want to note that the 30 day period appears to show price forming a base; this could indicate that a support/resistance level is developing. Or to simplify this another way, note that out of the past 30 days USD/MXN’s price has gone down 19 them. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing pin bar pattern appearing here.
