Gold edged down on Monday to just above a one-month low, as European stocks rose ahead of a Federal Reserve policy meeting that will be scrutinized for clarity on when the US central bank will raise interest rates.
 Spot gold fell 0.3 percent to USD 1,103.68 an ounce by 1148 GMT. It had fallen to USD 1,098.35 on Friday, the lowest since August 11. US gold GCcv1 for December delivery was unchanged at USD 1,103.20, also close to its lowest in a month.
 The Fed will kick off a two-day policy meet on Wednesday.
 Though some in the market still reckon a "lift-off" could come this week, the view is gathering steam that faltering global growth could push that back even into next year. [FRX/] "There has been so much anticipation (about the Fed rate hike) that we are now anticipated out," Macquarie analyst Matthew Turner said. 
"I don't think that not raising rates in September could feel like a complete change of policy," Turner said, adding that one concern for gold could be if the dollar resumes its upward move against developed market currencies. 
The dollar recovered from an almost three-week low against a basket of major currencies, while European shares rose, showing resilience to weak China data published over the weekend. 
 Gold has benefited in recent years from ultra-low rates, which cut the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding gold while weighing on the dollar, in which the metal is priced.
