However, the 1.1300 support area prevented further declines. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the 1.1251 low to 1.1347 high also acted as a resistance.

The current price action is positive, suggesting a strong rise above 1.1350. On the downside, the main supports are near 1.1300 and 1.1280.

If there is a close below 1.1280, EUR/USD could move into a bearish zone. The next main support is near the 1.1250 level. On the upside, a break above 1.1350 may push the pair towards 1.1400.
