Amid weakening global trend and low demand from jewellers, gold prices drifted further by Rs 190 to Rs 26,060 per ten grams at the bullion market today.

Silver also eased by Rs 100 to Rs 33,400 per kg due to lack of buying support from industrial units and coin makers.

Marketmen said apart from a weak global trend, muted demand from jewellers and retailers at the domestic spot markets dampened the sentiment.

Globally, gold fell 0.3 per cent to USD 1,083.11 an ounce in Singapore, while in London it was trading 0.52 per cent down at USD 1,080.90 an ounce in early trade.
