    Gold prices declined by Rs 70 to Rs 29,250 per 10 grams at the bullion market today owing to slack demand from local jewellers even as the yellow metal strengthened overseas.

    Silver continued to remain weak and eased further by Rs 50 to Rs 39,100 per kg due to reduced offtake from industrial units and coin makers.

    Traders said that a fall in demand from local jewellers and retailers at domestic spot market mainly led to the decline in gold prices, but better trend overseas capped the fall.
