USDMXN: Mexican Peso is The Strongest Currency In The World Against USD gaining 11% the last 3-Weeks


USDMXN slumps to the lowest level since March 16 as it trades lower for 15 days out of the last 16 trading sessions. Investors dump greenback across the board amid the unrest in many cities in the United States after the death of George Floyd. Mexican peso supported by the liquidity provided by central banks and optimism on reopening of the economy.

That story makes Mexican peso attractive as it provides high real and nominal rates. Mexican peso one-month bills offer a yield of up to 5.4%. Banxico, cut the interest rates by 50 basis points to 5.5% as was widely expected by markets, but the spread is still attractive than other major economies.

NAFTA group currencies gain momentum against the greenback as the escalation in US-China trade relations boost hopes that will benefit Mexican peso on tighter trade relationship with the USA. The strong rebound in crude oil prices also helps the Mexican peso.

On the economic data today, the United States Redbook Index rose -1.4% in May from previous -1.5%, the yearly reading came down to -7.2% on May 29 from previous -5.5%. Also, earlier today reported that the U.S. ISM-NY Business Conditions Index recovered to 19.5 in May from 4.3 in April.
