USD/JPY is the fuel for the Dollar Index rally today but the bulk of the recent move was EUR/USD falling in 11 of the past 13 days.

A rise above 100 should grab a few more headlines if it can get there.

It's really in a sweet spot and I could see it rallying to much-higher levels in either scenario.
