Gold slumps Rs 145 on lacklustre demand

Gold slumps Rs 145 on lacklustre demand


New Delhi, Jun 21 (PTI) Gold prices tumbled Rs 145 to Rs 31,570 per 10 grams at the bullion market today on fall in demand from local jewellers and retailers amid a weak trend overseas.

However, silver traded at its previous level of Rs 41,000 per kg on scattered enquiries from industrial units and coin makers.

Marketmen attributed the continuous fall in gold prices to muted demand from jewellers.

Besides, a weak global trend as a strengthening dollar diminished the safe-haven appeal of the precious metal, aided the downtrend.

Globally, gold fell 0.17 per cent to USD 1,265.66 an ounce and silver shed 0.23 per cent to USD 16.24 an ounce in Singapore today.

In the national capital, gold of 99.9 per cent and 99.5 per cent purity fell by Rs 145 each to Rs 31,570 and Rs 31,420 per 10 grams, respectively. The yellow metal had lost Rs 185 yesterday.

Sovereign, however, remained unaltered at Rs 24,800 per piece of eight grams.

On the other hand, silver ready traded at Rs 41,000 per kg on scattered deals but weekly-based delivery fell by Rs 240 to Rs 39,490 per kg on speculative selling.

Silver coins continued to be traded at the previous level of Rs 74,000 for buying and Rs 75,000 for selling of 100 pieces. PTI SUN DPL ABM
