Pure gold (99.9 purity) also dropped by Rs 125 to finish at Rs 27,840 per 10 grams from Rs 27,965. Silver (.999 fineness), however, rose by 160 to conclude at Rs 43,275 per kg as compared to Thursday's close of Rs 43,115. On the global front, the shiny-metal tumbled back to two-month low following heavy unwinding by gold-ETFs weighed by stronger dollar after a flurry of upbeat US macro data alongside a surprisingly positive jobless claims data reiterated concerns that the Federal Reserve could raise interest rates earlier than expected. Gold for December delivery skidded by nearly USD 20, or 1.50 per cent, to settle at USD 1,275.40 an ounce on the Comex division of the NYMEX late yesterday, while silver eased to USD 19.42 an ounce.
