When the CCI (Commodity Channel Index) is at this level, it means the price is above the average price as measured by the indicator, indicating a possible start of a new uptrend. Asset volatility analysis shows that a slight indication of a slowdown comes from looking at the Bollinger bands: the upper band is at 129.53 – a high enough level to usually suggest the Euro/Yen is trading above its value.
Overall, the technical analysis suggests Euro/Yen is neutral for the immediate future, with no clear-cut direction.
