Is the US dollar making a comeback?

After allowing the Euro to reach a 7 month high the US dollar has rebounded strongly along with the economy which shows its ability to withstand external shocks such as the Chinese economy with its  recent currency devaluations and stock market crash..

"It demonstrates the continued resiliency of the U. S. economy in the face of formidable international headwinds."
