Gold prices fell Rs 143 to Rs 31,160 per 10 grams at the futures trade due to profit-booking by participants at prevailing levels even as the precious metal strengthened overseas.

According to analysts, the fall in gold prices at the futures trade is mostly due to profit-booking by speculators at current levels but a better trend overseas limited the fall. In overseas markets, gold was trading 0.33 per cent higher at $1,204.80 an ounce in Singapore.

Silver prices fell Rs 55 to Rs 36,640 per kg at the futures trade due to profit-booking by speculators at prevailing levels. However, a firm trend overseas restricted the losses.
