EMERGING MARKETS-Mexico peso dips even as central bank intervenes

 (Updates table)
    SAO PAULO, March 6 (Reuters) - The Mexican peso weakened
slightly on Monday even after the central bank intervened to
support the ailing currency.
    The central bank sold $1 billion worth of a new peso hedge
instrument similar to non-deliverable forwards. Total demand for
the new instruments was $2.075 billion, the bank said.

    It had announced last month that it would sell up to $20
billion in currency hedges to shore up the peso, which has been
battered by U.S. President Donald Trump's pledges to tear up the
North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
    Still, the peso has rebounded in recent weeks on
hopes that the United States and Mexico could strike a mutually
beneficial deal.
    It hit a nearly four-month high on Monday, extending gains
from last week triggered by comments from a high-ranking U.S.
trade official, before turning lower.
    Other Latin American currencies were down as riskier assets
slipped around the world.
    The Brazilian real weakened 0.3 percent, while the
country's benchmark Bovespa stock index fell 0.9
percent.
