Mexican Peso Demonstrates Good Performance Despite Interest Rate Cut by Banxico

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.

The Mexican peso is mixed against several major currency pairs on Thursday as investors remain uncertain as to how to trade the country and the currency.

With trade uncertainty lingering in the background, the peso might be in store for some choppy waters.

Mexican Peso Mixed on Weak Industrial Output, Expected Rate Cuts

The Mexican peso is mixed against a basket of currencies to end the trading week.

USD/MXN Rises amid Mexico’s Poor Data, US-China Trade Conflict
