The BMV fell 1.39% due to a greater perception of risk due to the rise in COVID19 cases globally
The peso lost almost 40 cents and is moving away from 21 units per dollar after last week hit its best level in more than six months.
In its interbank price, according to data from the Bank of Mexico (Banxico), the Mexican currency lost 1.80 percent and closed at 21.45 units, this meant a loss of 37.90 cents. While at the bank window the dollar is sold at 21,7600 pesos, according to Citibanamex data.
According to Gabriela Siller, director of economic analysis at Banco Base, this drop is due to a greater perception of risk due to the rise in cases of Covid1 9 globally, therefore, some countries could implement new containment measures to stop a new wave of infections in the autumn and winter seasons.
For its part, the Index of Prices and Quotations (IPC) of the Mexican Stock Exchange, closed the session with a fall of 1.39 percent, compared to the previous session, which is located at 35 thousand 517.76 units.
Siller pointed out that in this scenario, the possibility of stagnation of the economic recovery mainly affected the capital market, where severe falls were observed in Europe with the main indices losing between 3 and 4 percent.
While in the United States, the S&P 500 lost 1.16 percent, as the shares of issuers that are considered cyclical were affected, while those of the technology sector had a moderate impact, as the Nasdaq lost only 0.13 percent.
