    Bullion merchants said a weak trend overseas after the European Central Bank signalled it could increase stimulus, which boosted the dollar and reduced demand for a safe haven, put pressure on the precious metal prices here.

    Globally, gold fell 0.08 per cent to USD 1,124.10 an ounce in Singapore.

    Besides, subdued demand from jewellers and retailers at domestic spot market dampened sentiment, they said.

    The precious metal lost Rs 250 in last two days.
