The positive cycle that had held for eight consecutive days, finally broke, closing the day with a fall of 1.01 percent

The Mexican Stock Exchange (BMV) broke the positive cycle that that had held for eight consecutive days, closing the day with a fall of 1.01 percent.

In line with widespread losses recorded for the day in most of the world stock markets, the local floor auction could not maintain the upward trend that stood for more than a week before the negative effects that caused the decline of international price of oil and heightened risk aversion.
