Foreign Investment in Mexico is Rising to New Highs in 2019

Foreign investment in Mexico has continued to grow in 2019 despite continued uncertainty surrounding USMCA, the renegotiated NAFTA deal, which has yet to be ratified by the U.S. Congress.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) suffered its largest one-day drop in history Monday when it fell 1,175 points (-4.6%) and opened lower again on Tuesday, leading to losses of at least -10.8% and decimating the massive return on investment we’ve gotten used to seeing over the last couple of years. This is exactly the kind of volatility we’ve been warning investors about and should serve as a sharp reminder of how unstable the stock market really is, especially for investors who need retirement income they can rely on, or who don’t have huge amounts of money to gamble with.

Betting on the Stock Market? Recent 4.6% Drop Should Be a Red Flag

The most recent rapid decline, which just passed -1,900 points as I write this, only proves what investors have experienced time and time again over the years: The stock market is volatile and is not a reliable way to invest money when you’re looking for stable ongoing investment income – especially for retirement.

Low Peso Drives Real Estate Investments in Mexico

The exchange rate reached 20 pesos to every U.S. dollar last summer and has remained close to that number ever since, prompting a wave of new interest in Mexico real estate among international buyers, especially Americans.
