DX going up means more expensive exports to our customers.

This is bearish for those markets, especially ag products like C, S and W.

This could have been a factor in those markets NOT reacting well to bullish weather forecasts.

This helps to kill our exports by making all US products MORE expensive to foreign buyers.

But it causes everything that we buy from other countries to be LESS expensive!

This is likely intentional but I don't follow the news/policy dynamics close enough to comment.

whether a strong dollar makes our products more expensive... is not the important issue here.  i think there are much bigger problems developing.  

normally the value of the buck is Not going up strongly as we also have inflation. 

the dollar is rising along with inflation, because there are very serious problems elsewhere around the globe.  (not just in ukraine or sri lanka).

biden might be doing everything wrong.  destroy the buck.  destroy the budget. destroy the energy sector.  but... so many problems elsewhere are worse.  so lots of people are still hording dollars.  

as interest rates go up,... lots of highly indebted countries will collapse.
