Today's USD-MXN commentary

The actual USD-MXN interbank rate is at the moment quite close to its lowest level of the last 2-week period. The weakest value recorded during this timeframe was USD 1 = MXN 18.7444 ( 0.14% lower than its actual level of USD 1 = MXN 18.7697), on April 12. The stark difference between the current low level of the USD-MXN rate and the maximal value (USD 1 = MXN 19.1261) recorded during the past two weeks means that, for instance, sending 3,500 USD today gives you roughly 1,247 MXN less than if you had sent money at the best time of the past 14 days, on April 8.
