The safe-haven yen eased on Monday, while the Australian dollar jumped after surprisingly strong Chinese factory activity data eased fears about a hard landing in the world's second biggest economy.
The Australian dollar rose 0.5 percent to $1.0400 having peaked at $1.0470 after a report on Sunday showed activity at big Chinese factories hit an 11-month high in March.

Against the yen, the Aussie climbed to 86.44, pulling well away from last week's trough around 84.60.
