The U.S. dollar edged lower against a basket of major currencies on Monday, halting last week's strongest advance since March but still hovering near six-month highs as traders awaited a glut of economic data and policy releases.
The dollar fell slightly against the euro but still traded near eight-month highs against the shared currency ahead of Wednesday's release of U.S. second-quarter gross domestic product growth and a Federal Reserve policy announcement.
Traders also eyed Friday's report of U.S. nonfarm payrolls growth for July.
Traders are watching the Fed closely for hints of a more hawkish monetary policy after a two-day policy meeting ends on Wednesday. Economists forecast U.S. GDP grew 3 percent in the second quarter after a sharp contraction of 2.9 percent in the first quarter, and expect U.S. employers to have added 233,000 jobs in July, according to Reuters polls.
