However, the pair is facing a tough resistance near the 1.1300 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. Besides, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.1313 high to 1.1280 low is acting as a resistance.

If there is an upside break, the pair could trade towards 1.1320 and 1.1340. On the other hand, if there is a downside break, the pair could decline sharply towards the 1.1250 and 1.1225 support levels.
