BRAZIL: BRL underperformed peers to reflect August disappointing economic activity. The currency also reacted to the results of BCB's weekly survey of economists, which showed reduced market's forecasts for 2019 and 2020 inflation, as well as 2020 policy rate, which was lowered to 4.75% from 5.0% in the previous survey.

MEXICO: MXN extended the rally gaining 0.26% to 19.271.
