Is the Dollar’s Rally Losing Steam?

In early December, (click here for article) there were strong signals that the dollar was ready to rally. The dollar index appears to have stalled below the 38.2% resistance at 80. The daily chart shows an apparent continuation pattern, and a daily close below 78 would be a short-term negative. Technically, it still looks as though the dollar is forming an intermediate-term bottom, but a test of the 75.50-76.50 area is still possible. A dollar decline corresponds nicely with the positive signals on gold.
