What is the meaning of a change, relative to parameters outside that formula?

Technically true, but how likely is it that the all the others drops or rise and the USD stay still?
Movement will usually be the result of the USD actually moving, that's the purpose of the averaging filter caused by measuring against a basket of other currencies.

How high?
Use real estate prices in our capital cities as a guide to how high and how long a bull market can go. Way past the point when we think " Oh.....the high is in"....all the way past the point where we think " Now it's ridiculous".....and will end when we think that we were wrong and that the market will remain at the high levels.
I think that is less than 500 words.

The energy levels on the index which will propel it above the 100 mark are now extreme. It is like waiting for a tyre to explode as you keep pushing in the air. You can see it getting bigger, you know its going to blow......

Where are you getting your definition? The USD index as most of us know it is not equally weighted and the EUR is the majority component.

significant break through the 100 mark on its way, very, very soon.........followed by a retest of the 100......and then up and away she goes again....it will be a long time before the 100 is seen again.

No..it was written in 1976.
It is a little know fact that Rod Stewart was one of the 'original' Silver Stackers. He accurately predicted the bottom of the mid 70's gold retracement. His song was actually a hidden message to other stackers to buy.

That would be "Reason to Believe" period I suppose.

Or maybe "I don't want to talk about it".

Yes, who can forget those poignant lyrics that sum up his devastation of missing the peak. " I don't wanna, talk about it...."

I'm thinking a short term move down in usdx is more likely now as the euro looks like its being held at these levels and setting up to move higher and break into 1.11s maybe 1.12s

I see the opposite.
I would not be surprised if the u.s. dollar index breaks the 100 next week. Uncertainty in Europe and negative rates in Japan. The rush to safety is gathering steam. The Euro is showing very little strength and for good reason. It is a dead currency walking.

Yes. Some serious wrong footing being set up here.
Feign left and go right.
