From a technical perspective:
As you can see in the above picture, EUR/USD on time frame H1 is within a bullish channel. If the currency pair succeeds to break the 1.3370 resistance and closes above this level, the short term trend may change from bearish to bullish. However if it fails to break the 1.3370 resistance again, it may return to the channel.
Have a nice time.
