Gold Plunges To Nearly Rs 29,000 On Global Cues


Gold prices tumbled by Rs. 250 to Rs. 29,100 per 10 gram at the bullion market today, tracking a weak trend overseas and muted demand from local jewellers.

Silver also dropped by Rs. 450 to Rs. 40,000 per kg due to reduced offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

Traders said a weak trend overseas as investors await the release of key US employment data later this week and fading demand from local jewellers at the domestic spot markets mainly pulled down gold prices.
