Preliminary data from Japan on first quarter growth and jobs reports from the U.K. and Australia will also be in focus.

Last week, the dollar rose to one-month highs against a basket of its major peers on Friday after stronger-than-expected reports on U.S. retail sales and consumer sentiment soothed investor concerns over the strength of the economy.

The dollar received an additional boost after data showing that U.S. consumer sentiment improved this month.
