    New Delhi, Apr 17 (PTI) Taking cues from the weakness in global markets and slackened demand from jewellers, gold prices drifted by Rs 90 to Rs 26,990 per 10 gm at the bullion market today.

    Silver also turned weak and prices eased by Rs 100 to Rs 36,900 a kg due to reduced offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

    Bullion traders said besides subdued demand at domestic spot markets from jewellers at existing levels, a weak global trend in the precious metals mainly dampened sentiments here.
