The reason why dollar recently hasn't been going very strong with the raising interest rates (still depending on what chart you are looking at), is because the interest rate decision has already been priced in.. . That means people already expected the interest rates to raise and they acted accordingly even before the decision was made. So when Yellen made the decision, people had nothing to act upon anymore.
