Spot gold fell on Monday as European equities rose after investor jitters calmed following a failed coup attempt in Turkey.
Spot gold fell earlier to a session low of $1,323.70 an ounce and was down 0.6 percent at $1,329.40. Bullion fell over 2 percent last week, its first weekly decline in seven weeks, as investors piled cash into riskier assets. Gold futures settled at $1329.30 per ounce.
U.S. gold was up 0.17 percent at $1,329.60 an ounce. Turkey widened a crackdown on suspected supporters of the failed military coup, taking the number of people rounded up in the armed forces and judiciary to 6,000. The government said it was in control of the country and economy.
