Looking at the 4-hours chart, the pair even broke the 1.1300 support area and settled below the 100 (red) simple moving average (4-hours). Sellers pushed the pair towards the 1.1220 support area and a low was formed at 1.1234.

Later, the pair corrected higher and moved above the 1.1250 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 1.1341 high to 1.1234 high.

However, there is a strong resistance formed near the 1.1315-1.1320 area. Moreover, there is also a major bearish trend line formed with resistance at 1.1320. Therefore, buyers need to push the pair above the 1.1320 resistance to start a decent rebound towards 1.1350 and 1.1400.

If buyers fail, there is a risk of a fresh decline below the 1.1250 and 1.1235 levels in the coming sessions. The main support is near the 1.1220 level, below which there could a sharp drop below 1.1200.

Recently in the US, the Industrial Production report for Jan 2019 was released. The market was looking for a 0.1% rise in production in Jan 2019, compared with the previous month.

However, the result was very disappointing as there was a 0.6% decline in the Industrial Production. Moreover, the last reading was revised down from +0.3% to +0.1%.

The report added that:

In January, manufacturing production fell 0.9 percent, primarily as a result of a large drop in motor vehicle assemblies; factory output excluding motor vehicles and parts decreased 0.2 percent.

Overall, there could be an upside correction in EUR/USD, but the pair is likely to face a lot of hurdles near 1.1320 and 1.1350.
