|For some perspective on the US dollar, today's chart illustrates the trend of the US dollar index over the past 20 years. Notice how the US dollar rose sharply from June 2014 to March 2015 -- a gain that is comparable in both duration and magnitude to what occurred during the height of the financial crisis (2008). Since March 2015, the US dollar has traded in choppy manner as it worked its way towards support of a five-year upward sloping trend channel. More recently, the US dollar has been generally working its way higher due to some positive economic reports as well as a growing expectation that the Fed will increase rates later this year.Notes:
