AUD to MXN Exchange Rate
Ah, Mexico: Home of corn, chilies, chocolate and the largest pyramid on the planet. Olé, olé, olé!
What influences the AUD/MXN exchange rate?
The Foreign Exchange Commission consists of officials from the Bank of Mexico and the Ministry of Finance, and it’s responsible for the foreign exchange policy of the country. In 1994, it was determined that market forces would establish the exchange rate of the Mexican peso, so the nation follows a floating exchange rate/free float regime.2
The AUD is one of the most heavily traded currencies and, in the aftermath of the Brexit vote and Trump’s election, investors have favoured AUD.3 Commodity prices are a major influence on the AUD, whereas because 80% of Mexico’s exports go to the United States, the MXN is influenced heavily by its ability to trade freely with the U.S.
The largest threat to the economy of Mexico is the trade changes that have been proposed by Trump, and the slumping peso has already stimulated higher costs of living for Mexicans. The USD/MXN exchange rate will depend on how much of Trump’s vision is bluster and how much comes to fruition.
