NEW YORK, April 4 (Reuters) - The dollar and the euro rallied more than 3 percent against the yen on Thursday in their biggest one-day moves since 2008 after the Bank of Japan enacted unprecedented monetary easing to fight persistent deflation.
The dollar rose 3.4 percent to 96.23 yen, the largest one-day rise since Oct. 2008 and edging closer to a 3-1/2-year peak of 96.71 yen set on March 12.
The euro gained 3.6 percent to 123.83 yen, the best one-day performance since Nov. 2008.
