European stocks closed slightly higher on Monday, amid mounting speculation the U.S. Federal Reserve could sound decidedly dovish at its policy meeting later this week.
The pan-European Stoxx 600 ended provisionally up 0.22 percent during deals, with most sectors and major bourses in positive territory.
Alongside Europe's banking index, basic resources stocks were among the top performers on Monday morning, up more than 1.6 percent. Shares of Rio Tinto, Anglo American and ArcelorMittal were all firmly higher.
