Currently, USDMXN’s rate is up 1149 pips (0.54%) from the hour prior. It’s been a feast for bears operating on an hourly timeframe, as USDMXN has now gone down 4 of the past 5 hours. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 100 hour timeframe. Regarding moving averages, it should first be noted that price has crossed the 20 hour moving average, resulting in them with price now being above it. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a bullishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bullish alignment — meaning the shorter durations are above the longer duration averages, implying a sound upward trend.

USDMXN Technical Analysis
The first thing we should note is that USDMXN is now close to its 20, 50 and 200 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 2438.3 pips away. It should be noted, though, the 20 day simple moving average turned downwards, which may be a bearish sign. 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 USDMXN’s price has gone down 16 them.
