Looking at the daily chart we notice, since Sep 20 EUR/USD has been declining towards the low end of current trading zone 1.0912- 1.1050. At the end of the last week, the price rebounded twice nearby the low end of the zone, reflecting seller’s hesitation to keep pressing the price lower.

Thus, the price may be on its way for a test of the high end of the zone, contingent on clearing the daily resistance levels underlined on the chart (zoomed in). Further close above 1.1060 could push EURUSD towards the vicinity of 1.1215-20. Although, the weekly resistance levels should be considered.

Its worth mentioning that on Sep 3, the price created a low then a lower low on Sep 27 meanwhile on RSI we notice a formation of low with a higher low. This indicates to a positive divergence, and a possible reverse in the price’s direction to the upside.
