Forex: USD/MXN testing lows after rate decision, trade surplus

FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - The Mexican peso is inching higher against the greenback on Friday after the Banxico (Mexican central bank) left the benchmark rate unchanged at 4.0%, matching consensus.

The wider trade surplus during March - $1.71 billion vs. $0.04 billion – and the prevailing risk-on context are also bolstering the stronger peso.

As of writing, the cross is down 0.17% at 12.1475 with the next support at 12.0626 (low Apr.15) ahead of 12.0189 (low Apr.11) and finally the psychological level at 12.0000.
On the upside, a breakout of 12.2043 (MA10d) would expose 12.3535 (high Apr.22) and then 12.3750 (high Apr.23).

Forex Flash: Gilts eying 20-day MA – RBS

According to Dmytro Bondar, a Technical Strategist at RBS, “Gilts met the initial target of 119.93 but fell short of 120.52 and formed a major reversal candlestick pattern (higher high, lower low, lower close) known as an outside session. It changes the view and suggests that should the 20-day MA and 119.27 level be broken, there would be strong chances of turning bearish with targets of 119.00 and 118.61. A sustained price above 120.00 makes it constructive again.”
