The dollar is being rewarded because the Fed is not doing what they are not supposed to be doing i.e. quantitative easing. The Fed is closing down this round of quantitative easing and threatening to abandon its zero interest rate policy by raising rates.
The Fed, thus appears to be a prudent steward of the dollar - after six years of zero interest rates and $4 trillion of money printing, all is forgotten!
If the Fed had announced in 2009 that they were going to pursue a policy of printing $4 trillion over the next six year and keeping interest rates at zero, the dollar would have collapsed. Yet that is what they did and the dollar is stronger now than in 2009!
