In the national capital, gold of 99.9 and 99.5 per cent purity declined by Rs 30 each to Rs 30,750 and Rs 30,600 per ten gram, respectively.

Amid a weak trend overseas and easing demand from local jewellers, gold prices slipped by Rs 30 to Rs 30,750 per ten gram at the bullion market today. Silver followed suit and shed Rs 25 to Rs 39,200 per kg owing to reduced offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

Marketmen said the sentiment turned bearish owing to a subdued trend overseas. where gold weakened as the dollar stood tall against its peers ahead of key central bank meetings and US inflation and payrolls data this week.

Besides, muted demand from local jewellers and retailers at the domestic spot markets too dampened the sentiment, they said.

Globally, gold fell 0.28 per cent to $1,219.80 an ounce and silver by 0.52 per cent to $15.39 an ounce in Singapore.
