EUR/USD Finds Trendline Resistance at the 100-Hour MA

The EUR/USD currency pair on Friday bounced off the trendline support at 1.0240, before finding resistance at the 100-hour MA. The currency pair continues to trade within a descending channel formation in the 60-min chart.

Friday’s rebound helped the currency pair to recover from the oversold conditions of the 14-hour RSI. However, with the 100-hour MA providing strong resistance, a pullback seems imminent.
