From the technical point of view, the trend on the EUR/USD currency pair in the hourly time frame has changed to bearish. Yesterday, the price confidently broke through the priority change level and consolidated lower. The MACD indicator is in the negative zone. The price has reached the support level, so it is too late for sell deals. Under such market conditions, traders can look for buy trades on the intraday timeframes from the support level of 1.0963, but only with short targets. Sell trades should be considered from the resistance level of 1.1027 or 1.1075, but only after the additional confirmation.

Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.1135 resistance level and fixes above, the uptrend will likely resume.
