    Gold, Silver Drops on Weak Global Cues, Low Demand

    Marketmen said the fall in gold prices was mostly attributed to a weak trend overseas as strengthening dollar reduced appeal for the precious metal and fall in demand from jewellers.

    Gold in Singapore, which normally set price trend on the domestic front, fell 0.3 per cent to USD 1,176 an ounce and silver by 0.3 per cent to USD 15.72 an ounce.

    In addition, recovery in the rupee against dollar at the forex market, making imports cheaper also put pressure on gold prices, they said.

    The rupee was trading 8 paise higher at 63.76 (intra-day).

    In the national capital, gold of 99.9 and 99.5 per cent purity plunged by Rs 100 each to Rs 26,850 and Rs 26,700 per 10 grams respectively. It had gained Rs 270 in last two days.

    Sovereign, however, continued to be traded at last level of Rs 23,300 per piece of eight gram.

    Tracking gold, silver ready dropped by Rs 550 to Rs 36,150 per kg and weekly-based delivery by Rs 670 to Rs 35,710 per kg.

    On the other hand, silver coins remained steady at Rs 54,000 for buying and Rs 55,000 for selling of 100 pieces.
