Gold fell more than 1% on Monday to its lowest in more than a week as the dollar strengthened and investors opted for riskier assets after the United States and China agreed to restart trade talks.
Spot gold was down 1.3% at $1,391.29 per ounce as of 04:11 GMT, after falling to as low as $1,389.65, its lowest since June 21.
U.S. gold futures dipped 1.3% to $1,394.90 an ounce.
Further pressuring gold prices, the dollar index rose 0.2% on Monday, making non-interest bearing bullion more expensive for holders of other currencies.
Among other precious metals, silver fell 0.6% to $15.21 per ounce and palladium was steady at $1,537.72. Platinum slipped 0.2% to $831.12 an ounce, falling from a six-week peak touched in the previous session.
