The dollar touched its highest against a basket of major currencies in nearly a week on Monday as the euro weakened on political risks linked to German Chancellor Angela Merkel's failure to form a three-way coalition government.
Merkel, whose conservatives were weakened after they won an election in September with a reduced number of seats, said she would inform the German president that she could not form a coalition, after the pro-business Free Democrats withdrew from negotiations.

The greenback also climbed against the , rising to a session high of 112.72 yen, climbing with U.S. stocks as traders took risk-on positions.
The Swiss franc, also favored in times of market risk aversion, fell against the dollar. The U.S. currency was last up 0.46 percent at 0.9929 franc.
Bitcoin was trading at above $8,200 after hitting a record high of $8,226 on the Luxembourg-based Bitstamp exchange on Sunday.
