New Delhi: Gold prices on Wednesday fell by Rs 115 to Rs 33,210 per 10 gram at the bullion market, tracking a weak trend overseas and tepid demand from local jewellers, according to the All India Sarafa Association.
Silver, however, staged a strong recovery of Rs 310 to Rs 40,160 per kg due to increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers.
Traders attributed the decline in gold prices to a weak trend overseas and muted demand from jewellers at the domestic markets.
Globally, gold fell 0.11 percent to $1,284.30 an ounce but silver rose 0.16 percent to $15.43 an ounce in New York.
