Peso Review - July 2015

In July, the Mexican peso declined 2.4% against the U.S. dollar, closing the month at a spot-market value of $0.0621 (16.10 pesos per dollar).  The currency has now fallen in 10 of the last 11 months, leaving it down some 20.2% from its most recent high in June 2014.  The peso has set multiple record lows in recent months, and all signs suggest it will continue to weaken.

Peso Review - April 2015

In April, the Mexican peso fell 0.6% against the U.S. dollar, closing the month at a spot-market value of $0.0651 (15.36 pesos per dollar).  That followed a 2.1% decrease in March, and it marked the currency's seventh decline in the last eight months.  The threat of higher interest rates in the United States remains a key headwind.

Peso Review - March 2015

In March, the Mexican peso fell 2.1% against the U.S. dollar, closing the month at a spot-market value of $0.0655 (15.27 pesos per dollar).  The peso has now fallen in six of the last seven months, leaving it down some 15.7% from its most recent high last May.  The threat of rising U.S. interest rates will probably keep the peso under pressure in the near term.
