USD MXN for Investor

What Is MXN (Mexican Peso)?
MXN is the currency abbreviation for the Mexican peso, which is the official currency of Mexico. The Mexican peso is made up of 100 centavos and is often presented with the symbol $ or Mex$. The name "peso" means "weights" and refers to gold or silver weights.

MXN is the currency abbreviation for the Mexican peso, which is the official currency of Mexico. The peso was initially based on Spain's official currency, known as real, which was the Spanish dollar and was minted in silver. As of 2022, the Mexican peso had become the eighth most traded currency in the world and the most traded in Latin America.

Understanding MXN (Mexican Peso)
The peso was initially based on Spain's official currency, known as real, which was the Spanish dollar minted in silver. The Mexican name originated from the most common denomination of the currency, which was the silver 8-real coin, and remained in circulation until the mid-19th century. In 1863 the first coins were produced that were denominated in centavos, and worth one-hundredth of the peso. These coins remained in circulation until the mid-20th century, but their content of gold was reduced substantially over time.

Following a period of hyperinflation and currency devaluation in the 1980s, which occurred after Mexico defaulted on its external debt as a result of the 1970s oil crisis, the government of Mexico in 1993 created a new peso, or nuevo peso, to replace the original peso. The new peso replaced the old peso at a rate of 1:1,000.

Like many emerging market currencies, the value of the peso fluctuates with the geopolitical and global sentiment. Generally, when global volatility is low, the peso appreciates, as seen in the years after the Great Recession. A slew of accommodative central bank policy initiatives saw volatility fall and the value of the peso slowly climb.

In the months following the presidential election of Donald Trump in 2016, volatility spiked, and, as uncertainty surrounding the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) heightened, the peso plummeted, losing about 20% of its value in three months.

The Mexican peso is the eighth most traded currency in the world and the most traded in Latin America.

What Does USD Stand for?
The USD is the currency abbreviation for the U.S. dollar ($), the official currency of the United States of America and the world's primary reserve currency over the past several decades. It is managed by the Federal Reserve, America's central bank.

In foreign exchange (forex) markets, the USD is the most common pairing in exchange with other currencies; for instance, EUR/USD, USD/JPY, and GBP/USD. The U.S. dollar is also the official currency for a small number of other nations such as The Marshall Islands, Panama and Ecuador, and is unofficially accepted in local exchange in several other countries around the world.

Understanding the USD
The USD is the currency of the United States and is denoted by the symbol '$'. One dollar can be divided into one hundred cents. Dollar banknotes are currently issued in denominations of $1, $2, $5, $10, $20, $50, and $100. Each feature the portrait of a president on the front (with the exception of the $100 bill, which depicts Benjamin Franklin)—and the $20 bill may soon feature abolitionist Harriet Tubman on its front.

Notably, $500 and $1,000 banknotes used to circulate in limited amounts but ceased in 1969. Coins are minted in denominations of $0.01 (cent), $0.05 (nickel), $0.10 (dime), $0.25 (quarter), $0.50 (half dollar), and $1.00. Banknotes and coins are produced by the Treasury Department and shipped directly to Federal Reserve banks and branches for distribution and circulation.

The USD is the most traded currency in the international foreign exchange market, which facilitates global currency exchange and is the largest financial market in the world, with a daily average volume for May 2022 of nearly $1.2 trillion. As such, the USD is considered a benchmark currency and is readily accepted in transactions worldwide.

A Brief History of the USD
The USD has been the official currency of the United States since the passage of the National Currency Act of 1785. Before that, the United States used a patchwork system of unreliable continental currency, British pounds, and various foreign currencies. At first, the dollar was denominated only in coins, with paper currency introduced in 1861, and its value was keyed to the relative prices of gold, silver, and copper.

Various acts of Congress modified the USD's design, value, and underlying commodities until the currency's oversight was formalized with the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. After this reform, the dollar was technically a Federal Reserve note, redeemable on demand for an equivalent value of precious metals at any of the Federal Reserve banks or the U.S. Mint.

U.S. dollars ceased to be redeemable with the de facto abandonment of the gold standard in 1933, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt prohibited the private ownership of gold. In 1944, the Bretton Woods Agreement effectively forced all of the major currencies of the world to convert from a precious metal-based value system to one of the fixed exchange rates, with governments allowed to sell gold to the United States for $35 an ounce, payable only in U.S. dollars. The gold standard was formally abandoned in 1971, when the Bretton Woods exchange rates were abandoned.

Today, the USD is a free-floating currency on global forex markets. In the post-Bretton Woods world, the U.S. dollar acts as the reserve currency of most countries. Instead of stockpiling gold and silver, the central banks of the world keep a steady reserve of dollars as a hedge against inflation.

Measuring the USD Value
The value of the USD is broadly measured by the U.S. Dollar Index (USDX), which is comprised of a basket of currencies affiliated with the major trading partners of the United States. These include the euro (57.6% of the Index), the Japanese yen (13.6%), the British pound (11.9%), the Canadian dollar (9.1%), the Swedish krona (4.2%), and the Swiss franc (3.6%). The index goes up when the dollar gains strength against other currencies and falls when it weakens.6

Within the United States, the amount of dollars in existence is measured by one of the several money-supply (money stock) metrics put out by the Fed. The monetary base, or M0, is the aggregate total amount of dollars in circulation in the form of cash (banknote and coin). As the monetary base increases, the fractional reserve banking system expands the money supply via the money multiplier effect.

Advantages of the USD
Several factors work to make the USD attractive as a reserve currency and in exchange, but the dollar's long-standing price stability might be the most important. Unlike some other major currencies, the USD to date has never been devalued to handle the country's debt or seen bouts of hyperinflation.

Moreover, no U.S. dollar has ever been dishonored or refused as legal tender, which vastly increases confidence in the soundness of the currency. As a result, the USD is used to denominate financial, debt, and commodity transactions all over the world.

Because of its strength and stability, many foreign governments and central banks hold onto U.S. dollar reserves to help keep their own economy and local currency stable. This may be in the form of actual USD currency holdings, or (more commonly) as U.S. Treasury bonds.

When to Trade the USD MXN

The best time to trade the Mexican peso (MXN) is usually in the morning, when many financial markets are open and a steady stream of news is flowing. The currency is not in the top 10 based on global liquidity and is well behind the U.S. dollar (USD), euro (EUR), Japanese yen (JPY), and British pound sterling (GBP). Traders typically focus on the peso in relation to other currencies, and the USD/MXN currency pair accounts for the bulk of activity in the peso.

In recent decades, the Mexican peso has transformed from a sleepy developing-world currency into an international financial instrument. While the USD/MXN pair attracts fewer participants than other major currency pairs, such as the euro (EUR/USD) and yen (USD/JPY), it offers highly liquid access to Latin America, as well as opportunities created by emerging market growth and weakness.

The USD/MXN currency pair trades continuously from Sunday evening to Friday afternoon in the United States, offering significant opportunities. However, volume and volatility can fluctuate greatly in each 24-hour cycle, with spreads (the difference between bids and asks) widening during quiet periods and narrowing during active periods. While the ability to open and close positions at any time marks a key benefit of the foreign exchange (forex) market, the majority of trading strategies unfold during active periods.

As a top-15 oil-producing country, Mexico is tied to its natural resources, with the peso showing a tight correlation with other commodity-based currencies, including the Brazilian real (BRL) and the Colombian peso (COP). This interdependence increases the importance of energy fluctuations as well as of data that moves crude oil and natural gas futures markets. The weekly U.S. oil inventory report, released at 10:30 a.m. ET on Wednesdays, can have a particularly strong effect on USD/MXN.

The best times to trade the Mexican peso track the release of economic data as well as open hours at equity, options, and futures exchanges. Planning ahead requires two-sided research, because local and U.S. catalysts will move USD/MXN with equal intensity. In addition, the peso will often trade in lockstep with other commodity crosses, with energy and natural resource catalysts on the other side of the planet impacting local price action.

Banco de México meets eight times per year to address monetary policy and announce policy updates through press releases. The majority of meetings are scheduled 24 to 72 hours after the U.S. Federal Reserve issues its decisions, highlighting the interdependence between the two nations. Forex traders need to stay alert on release day, because the policy update can come at any time.

The majority of Mexico’s economic data is released at 9 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. ET. The time segment from 30 to 60 minutes prior to these releases and one to three hours afterward is an enormously popular period to trade USD/MXN, because it also overlaps with the start of the U.S. trading day, drawing in significant volume in both venues.

U.S. economic releases at 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. ET generate extraordinary trading volume as well, with high odds for trending movements. USD/MXN volume drops precipitously between Asian and European market hours, but energy-based data can still trigger a flurry of trading activity.

Mexican peso trading schedules roughly follow U.S. exchange hours, increasing activity when New York equity markets and Chicago futures and options markets are open for business. This localization generates an increase in trading volume when the sun rises in the U.S. and continues into the late afternoon hours.

Central bank agendas can shift this activity cycle, with forex traders staying at their desks when the Federal Reserve’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) releases interest rate decisions or minutes from prior meetings. The European Central Bank (ECB) can also cause a spike in MXN activity, especially when the highly popular EUR/USD pair experiences a substantial move.

The USD/MXN forex pair offers Mexican peso traders a variety of short- and long-term opportunities. The best times to trade this instrument are before and after U.S. economic releases, usually scheduled at 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. ET. This reporting schedule keeps the forex pair active and liquid throughout much of the U.S. equity and futures exchange hours.

USDMXN has had difficulties creating higher structure while slowy going down on every failed attempt to break higher. Price has recently broken below a key support which shows that sellers are in control especially knowing the macro economics circumstances. My target is at 16.82000 .
