New Delhi: A weak global trend and easing demand from local jewellers pulled down gold prices by Rs 80 to Rs 30,890 per ten gram at the bullion market on Monday, snapping its three-day rising streak.
However, silver recovered by Rs 65 to Rs 39,320 per kg due to increased offtake by industrial units. Traders said apart from a weak overseas trend, fading demand from local jewellers and retailers at existing levels at the domestic spot market, weighed on gold prices.
