EUR/USD broke thru the March high. Monthly chart looks bullish. But keep in mind that there is massive multi year and often tested congestion area between 1.20 and 1.25. Once that is cleared it should fly to 1.50/1.60.

When USD falls a lot US stocks become unattractive for overseas investors. Ex-US stocks will become more attractive, also for US-based investors.

on weekly, log scale, DXY looks still solid, in uptrend.

Yes, the multi year downtrend in EUR/USD is not broken yet.

btw, I never look at Dollar Index. EUR/USD is the vast majority of the index, The USD index will never move in the complete opposite direction of EUR/USD.

Yeap. It will mostly move in the same direction as euro but dxy is not only about euro

It is a weighted geometric mean of the dollar's value relative to following select currencies:

 

Euro (EUR), 57.6% weight

Japanese yen (JPY) 13.6% weight

Pound sterling (GBP), 11.9% weight

Canadian dollar (CAD), 9.1% weight

Swedish krona (SEK), 4.2% weight

Swiss franc (CHF) 3.6% weight

Yep, that‘s right. But see, EUR/USD is almost 60% of the index. Since it isn‘t an equal weight index that means it is almost impossible that the Dollar index will behave completely different to the move in EUR/USD. The Dollar index is a synthetic product, whereas EUR/USD represents real miney flows. It is not the case that the Dollar index breaks an important level and because of that folks start buying/selling EUR/USD. It is the other way around.

The Dollar index is just a gimmic. It is idiotic to construct an index where one single constituent is 58% of the undex. It‘s like if Newmont or Barrick would be 60% of the HUI. Why should you then analyze HUI? You would know that HUI would be behave exactly like Newmont or Barrick.
