The volatility remains elevated in global financial markets amid fears about the global state of the economy and the future. On Wednesday, the Bank of England (BoE) shook the markets by announcing temporary purchases of bonds, after the dramatic fall in their value.

What the BoE did ended up favoring a rise in stock markets and a decline in sovereign bond yields. It also led to an upward correction in raw materials. All of this favored emerging market currencies, including the Mexican peso.

In the afternoon, the Bank of Mexico will announce its monetary policy decision, which is expected to be a rise of 75 basis points, to match what the Federal Reserve did last week and mainly due to the fact that inflation in Mexico remains above 8%, very far from the target of the central bank.
