Silver prices also shed Rs 473 to Rs 45,375 per kg from Rs 45,848 per kg in the previous session.

In the international market, gold was trading at $1,466 an ounce and silver at $16.86 per ounce in New York.

Prices in the global market fell after the White House Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow said the US was getting close to a trade agreement with China, Patel said. This development led to a recovery in equity indices and kept the yellow metal prices subdued.

Increased global economic confidence might lead to a decline in gold's demand as a safe haven due to a likely trade deal between the US and China, Hareesh V- Head Commodity Research at Geojit Financial services - said.

"Hopes of an immediate trade deal and a bunch of recent positive economic releases eased apprehensions of further economic slowdown and boosted the market optimism. Increased global economic confidence may reduce gold's safe-haven demand gradually. However, growing geopolitical tensions are likely to offer lower-level support to prices. On the domestic side, a weak rupee would limit major selloffs in the counter," he said.
