Dollar Index (Reverse scale) & EURUSD:Looking for Dollar strength

Last year, when Dollar Index was 93 we predicted a rise to 105 in 2018, as part of a long-term 5-wave upmove. It is near 94 now, after having seen a low of 89.11 in Jan. Our overall reading remains bullish for 100 and even 105 on Dollar Index while it trades above 92-89. Given the high inverse correlation between the Dollar Index and the Euro, even if the Dollar Index rises to 100 (not 105), it can weaken the Euro towards 1.10.
