Gold declines ahead of Federal Reserve meet
MCX gold declined in today's trade ahead of a Federal Reserve two-day policy meet which will start later today. International gold edged up after losing in previous sessions as physical buying picked up as prices fell to 21/2 week low.

US spot gold was seen hovering at $1,663 an ounce.

At 02.20 pm IST, the gold for February delivery on the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) was trading at Rs 30,279.00 per 10 grams lower Rs 59.

While, silver for May delivery on MCX was seen trading at Rs 57,835 per kgs higher Rs 73.
