The Mexican peso began the session on Wednesday with an appreciation of 16 cents, when it was exchanged at 21.5907 for a spot dollar, driven by investor optimism regarding the reopening of economies, the rise in oil prices, as well as by positive economic indicators in Europe and the United States, despite protests in the neighboring country, publishes Notimex.

Optimism prevails in the financial market, due to the publication of positive economic indicators for the services sector. In China, the services sector PMI rebounded from 44.4 to 55 units in May, accumulating three months of consecutive increases and its highest level since the end of 2010.
