In the international market, gold traded lower at USD 1,847 per ounce, and silver also dipped to USD 27.50 per ounce.

Navneet Damani, VP - Commodities Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services said, investors are witnessing some profit-booking from the highs, after yesterday's Union Budget's duty cut announcement.
