The dollar touched a three-month high against the on Monday, as investors bet the overwhelming election victory for Japan's ruling party would mean a continuation of "Abenomics," the ultra-loose policies that have kept downward pressure on the yen.
The greenback was trading around its highest in 2-1/2 weeks against a basket of six major currencies. Traders have been speculating that the next head of the Federal Reserve could take a more hawkish stance on monetary policy.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP)-led coalition kept its two-thirds "super majority" in the lower house with a total of 313 seats in its election win on Sunday.

The dollar gained as much as half a percent to 114.10 yen on the EBS trading platform, its strongest since July 11. It was last down 0.11 percent at 113.37 yen. The euro fell 0.31 percent at $1.1748, holding below a 2-1/2-year peak of $1.2092 reached on Sept. 8, on anxiety about Madrid's handling of civil unrest in Catalonia following a referendum on the region's independence on Oct. 1.
The single currency was on its back foot ahead of a European Central Bank policy meeting on Thursday. Traders were betting on a more hawkish stance from the ECB offset by hints it is not in a rush to tighten policy.
