New Delhi, May 11 (PTI) Gold prices ruled steady at Rs 27,250 per 10 grams in restricted activity at the bullion market today on scattered buying support from jewellers even as the precious metal softened overseas.
However, silver stayed off-colour due to absence of necessary follow-up support from industrial units, which fell Rs 100 to Rs 37,800 per kg.
Globally, gold was trading 0.18 per cent down at USD 1,185.40 an ounce in London.
