US Dollar Bear Market Returns?

The general direction of the US dollar is still down. It’s declining in a choppy fashion so we could be looking at a 5th wave diagonal decline.  The Euro jumped as the USD declined, but the Euro is a better looking rally. It’s not a beauty contest, but a war between bulls and bears.  Right now the bears seemed to be winning as the USD slowly keeps  grinding down.

The commercials switched to a net short position, so this helps in knowing that a super bull will not suddenly possess the US dollar holders.  I think the US dollar still has to fall well below that 88.200 price level, but it must also be finishing the big Minute degree decline.  Price alone will never give you the basis of a major reversal, but patterns do. Yes, I use price, but it’s always associated with the pattern I may be working. Price forecasts by the experts sure didn’t help to forecast the end of the US dollar bull market, so why should they know when the US dollar bear market is going to end?  The experts never saw the end of the 2008 US dollar bear market so why should they this time around?

Nobody was expecting a media trade war to be conducted at record peaks of the stock markets, but they did.  The big question is if the US dollar bull market that started in 2008 was actually a fake bull market. Bear market rallies always produce total retracements which in the US dollar case, would be well below the 70 price level. It will be a tough call once this US dollar 5 wave sequence is done, as a strong US dollar rally would have to happen.
