    The previous week, the dollar added a setback to the be quoted at $16.75 pesos per dollara similar figure with which it opened this Monday, something that has not surprised analysts, who recognize that the “super peso” is having a positive effect on the projections of the Mexican economy.

    “The rate differential leads to the appreciation of the peso, but I don’t think that’s the most important thing. Rather, I think it’s the expectations that the Mexican economy can grow more,” said Gabriela Siller, head of analysis at Banco Base de Mexico, according to a WSJ report.

    Bank of America has insisted that the peso’s recent gains are due to US interest rates.
