The Mexican peso opens with gains pending US employment data

At the open this Thursday, most currencies are showing a mixed performance, which is a sign of caution ahead of the release of US employment figures. The Mexican peso, however, opened with a gain of around 0.38% against the dollar.

The market anticipates that the creation of 250,000 job positions will be published in July, but a lower than expected job creation could cause greater risk aversion, since it would imply a deterioration of the labor market after two quarterly contractions of the GDP.
