However, the pair seems to be struggling near the 1.1240 level the 50 hourly simple moving average. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.1255 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.
The trend line coincides with the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.1287 high to 1.1191 low. Therefore, the pair must break the 1.1250 and 1.1255 resistance levels to start a fresh increase.
If the bulls succeed, the pair could continue to rise towards the 1.1280 and 1.1300 levels. Conversely, there is a risk of another decline below the 1.1220 support. The main support is near the 1.1180 level.
A downside break and close below the 1.1180 support region could start a strong decline and the pair might slide towards the 1.1120 and 1.1100 levels in the near term.

The main resistance is seen near the 0.9500 level since it is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 0.9532 high to 0.9461 low. A successful close above the 0.9500 resistance zone could open the doors for a larger upward move towards 0.9525 or 0.9530.
