Price Signal Summary: USDBRL Remains Vulnerable

LATAM FX
  • USDMXN traded lower yesterday. The move lower this week has resulted in a break of support at 20.2080, the Jul 29 low and the 20.00 handle. This signals potential for a move towards 19.8193 next, the Jun 27 low. Key short-term resistance has been defined at 20.8335, the Aug 3 high. Initial resistance is at 20.5004, the Aug 4 high.
  • USDBRL has this week traded below 5.1298, the Aug 1 low. The clear break of 5.1298, highlights potential for a deeper pullback and has opened 5.0055, the 61.8% retracement of the May 30 - Jul 21 upleg. The 76.4% level is at 4.8853. On the upside, initial key resistance has been defined at 5.3157, the Aug 3 high. A break would reinstate a bullish focus and attention would turn to 5.5142, the Jul 21 high and a bull trigger.
  • USDCLP has pierced support at 884.75, Aug 1 low. A clear break would confirm a continuation of the current bear leg and open 853.40, the Jun 15 low. Initial firm resistance has been defined at 970.08, the Jul 22 high. A breach of this level is required to reinstate a bullish theme.
