    The Mexican peso rose against the U.S. dollar on Thursday, after Mexico's central bank, known as Banxico, lifted its overnight interest rate to 7.25% from 7% before, as expected. Mexico's high interest rate make it an attractive destination for investors looking for emerging-market exposure, while also being tied to the U.S. economy as its main trading partner. The peso began to rally halfway through the U.S. trading day, in anticipation of the rate hike, paring its losses and finally rising against the buck. One dollar last bought 18.9922 pesos, down about 0.1% from 18.9926 pesos late Wednesday.
