The US Dollar has received a fair amount of attention over the past year, as pandemic-spurred government stimulus and assistance programs and a softer stance from the Federal Reserve have weakened the buck.

And commodity bulls have benefited enjoying a broad rally over the past 12-18 months.

But not all is lost for King Dollar. And commodity bulls need to pay attention.
