USD/MXN Technical Analysis

Coming into today the current price of USD/MXN is sitting close to its 50 and 100 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 100 day average, which is 1536.6 pips away. Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. It should be noted, though, that a trend in the opposite direction, going down, exists on the 90 day timeframe. For additional context, note that price has gone down 16 out of the past 30 days. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing doji and pin bar patterns appearing here.

Just a quick update on my previous post….The market has retested our triangle and failed to break below and a bull confirmation has been formed….we should be able to see at least another 2,000pips upward movement for the day!
