Mexican Peso Weakens As IMF Slashes Growth Estimates

Mexican Peso Slides As Industrial Output, Fixed Investment Drop

The Mexican peso slipped against multiple currency rivals to kick off the trading week as weak industrial output, fixed investment, and consumer confidence impacted the currency.

Mexican Peso Demonstrates Good Performance Despite Interest Rate Cut by Banxico

Friday’s performance of the Mexican peso was rather good considering that Mexico’s central bank decided to cut interest rates. The currency was about flat versus the US dollar and even managed to gain on the extremely weak euro.

Mexican Peso Weakens As USMCA Remains Incomplete

The Mexican peso is weakening against its major currency rivals at the end of the trading week, driven primarily by the delay in completing the new North American Free Trade Agreement, which is also known as the USMCA. But the peso’s declines were capped by strong retail sales data for September.

Mexican Peso Strengthens Despite Doubts Over USMCA

The Mexican peso is strengthening against several currency pairs on Thursday, despite doubts over the trade agreement between the US, Mexico, and Canada.
