    NEW DELHI: Gold prices plunged by Rs 200 to trade at Rs 27,000 per 10 grams at the bullion market on Thursday on weak overseas cues and easing demand from jewellers.

    Silver also drifted by Rs 350 to Rs 36,250 per kg due to reduced offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

    Bullion traders said a weak trend overseas where gold was priced at lowest level in over one week after signs of a recovery in the US economy supported the case for higher borrowing costs, mainly influenced sentiments here.
