    Gold tumbled by Rs 150 to Rs 30,250 per ten gram at the bullion market on Friday, hit by a subdued trend overseas and falling demand from local jewellers. Silver, too, faced selling pressure and lost Rs 125 to Rs 39,200 per kg.

    Traders said the global weakness of precious metals, as higher dollar against a basket of currencies overseas dented the safe haven appeal of gold, dampened sentiments here. Globally, gold fell 0.69 per cent to $1,274.60 an ounce in New York on Thursday.
