TOKYO Dec 3 (Reuters) - The euro rose to a six-week high against the dollar on Monday, after upbeat data on Chinese manufacturing helped to trigger stop-loss buying of the common currency.

The euro rose as high as $1.3045, where there is strong resistance from a long-term trendline connecting its peak hit in April and August of 2011.
