The euro rose 0.2% to $ 1.22375 in Asian trade, approaching a two-and-a-half year high of $ 1.22735 that it touched earlier this month.
On Monday, the US House of Representatives voted to increase the stimulus payments to eligible Americans to $ 2,000 from $ 600, and referred the matter to the Senate for a vote.
