Gold prices fell more than 1 percent on Monday from the previous session's 13-month high as relief that North Korea did not conduct a missile test over the weekend helped to lift global stocks, the U.S. dollar and bond yields.
Demand for safer assets, including gold, also weakened after Hurricane Irma wreaked less damage in Florida than had been feared.
Spot gold was down 1.2 percent at $1,330.24 an ounce drop since July 3. On Friday it touched $1,357.54, the highest since August last year.
U.S. gold futures for December delivery settled down 1.2 percent at $1,335.70.
Gold had rallied 1.6 percent last week on fears of a North Korean missile launch and the impact of Irma on the U.S. economy, helping to drive the dollar to its weakest since January 2015 and U.S. bond yields to 10-month lows.

"The net long is getting close to elevated levels," said Hansen. "The long to short ratio is above 20. We haven't seen that for nearly five years."
Large speculative positioning raises the likelihood of big price swings if investors rush to exit positions when prices change direction.
Palladium gained 0.26 percent to $936.90. Analysts at Commerzbank said the metal used by the auto industry in emissions-controlling catalytic converters was benefiting from strong Chinese car sales data but that sales there are likely to weaken.
