"Spot gold (Delhi) prices opened lower following overnight selling in spot COMEX gold. The correction in gold prices comes ahead of the start of the festive season which could lift demand," said Devarsh Vakil, Head - Advisory (PCG), HDFC Securities.

In the global market, gold prices were trading lower at $1,508 per ounce, while silver traded at $17.90 an ounce.

"International gold prices witnessed sell-off after US President Donald Trump told a trade deal with China could happen sooner than expected that damped the safe-haven demand," Vakil added.

Global markets rallied after Trump's comments on a trade deal with China.

Meanwhile, the BSE benchmark index zoomed over 396 points on Thursday amid positive cues from global markets.
