Notably, the current price of USD/MXN is sitting close to its 20 and 50 day moving averages; moving average crosses often indicate a change in momentum, so this may be worth keeping an eye on. 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 2826.2 pips away.

Interestingly, a trend in the other direction exists on the 90 day timeframe, where price is headed down. For additional context, note that price has gone up 5 out of the past 10 days.
