In the national capital, gold of 99.9 per cent and 99.5 per cent purity shed Rs 50 each to Rs 31,200 and Rs 31,050 per 10 gram, respectively.

Silver rises by Rs 150 to Rs 37,850 per kg

Gold eased by Rs 50 to Rs 31,200 per 10 gram at the bullion market due to subdued demand from local jewellers amid a weak overseas trend. However, silver rose Rs 150 to Rs 37,850 per kg owing to scattered enquiries from industrial units and coin makers.

Marketmen said gold fell in tandem with a weak global trend as the dollar hit a one-week high on the back of intensifying global trade tensions and economic worries in emerging markets. Furthermore, sluggish demand from local jewellers and retailers at the domestic spot market put pressure on gold prices.

Globally, gold fell 0.57 per cent to $1,194 an ounce and silver by 1.25 per cent to $14.28 an ounce in Singapore. In the national capital, gold of 99.9 per cent and 99.5 per cent purity shed Rs 50 each to Rs 31,200 and Rs 31,050 per 10 gram, respectively. The precious metal had lost Rs 100 yesterday. Sovereign however remained steady at Rs 24,500 per piece of eight gram in limited deals.

On the other hand, silver rose Rs 150 to Rs 37,850 per kg and weekly-based delivery by Rs 75 to Rs 36,770 per kg. Silver coins however remained flat at Rs 72,000 for buying and Rs 73,000 for selling of 100 pieces.
