DXY: Finally Breaking Out?

Stocks tumbled yesterday on inflation numbers that call into question the pace of the Fed’s taper and rate increases. Then they rallied overnight on an 11.4% collapse in VIX. The most significant chart on my screens at the moment, though, is the US dollar. DXY has had great difficulty breaking out of a tightly controlled consolidation pattern that dates back to July 2020. It tried this past September, but was smacked down to support stocks’ recovery from that terrifying (sarc) 5.8% slump.Now, it’s making another bid for a breakout — one we’ve been expecting for months (a very lonely stance BTW) — which wouldn’t bode well for stocks. Is this one for real?
