July 29 (Reuters) - Gold prices gained on Monday ahead of this week's U.S. Federal Reserve monetary policy meeting, which is expected to lead to a cut in U.S. interest rates.
* Spot gold was up 0.4% at $1,423.49 per ounce, as of 0121 GMT.
* U.S. gold futures gained 0.3% to $1,423.20 an ounce.
Market participants are now awaiting the U.S. central bank's July 30-31 monetary policy meeting, where it is expected to trim its interest rate by at least 25 basis points.
* Interest rate futures are fully priced for a quarter-point rate cut from the Fed on Wednesday, with only a small chance of a half-point move.

* Better than expected U.S. data lifted the dollar to a two-month high versus a basket of currencies on Friday, and held firm near that level on Monday.
* U.S. and Chinese trade talks are shifting to Shanghai this week, as negotiators from both countries meet for their first in-person talks since a truce at G20 last month. Expectations are low for a breakthrough.
