The Australian and NZ dollars climbed against their major counterparts in the Asian session on Monday, as oil prices crossed $80 a barrel amid supply constraints and continued strong demand.

WTI crude futures are trading at $80.94 per barrel, up 2.00 percent for the day.

Supply restrictions from major oil producers and a spike in demand across the globe lifted oil prices.

Asian shares are mostly higher, led by gains in Japan and China tech shares.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida's comments that he would not raise the country's capital gains tax for the time being further underpinned sentiment.

The earnings season will begin this week, with leading banks, including JPMorgan Chase due to publish results.

The aussie reached as high as 0.7331 against the greenback, up from a low of 0.7292 set at 7:45 pm ET. If the aussie rises further, it may likely seek resistance around the 0.75 level.
