Asian shares started the week on a strong note today after a weaker U.S. dollar helped fuel solid gains on Wall Street.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up about 1.3 percent in early trading, while Japan's Nikkei stock average opened up 0.2 percent.

The dollar had rallied in recent months on expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve was preparing to hike interest rates later this year.
