New Delhi: After rising for three straight sessions, gold remained steady at Rs 27,400 per 10 grams in the national capital on Thursday on the back of restricted buying by jewellers and retailers even as the metal strengthened in global markets.
Silver too ended flat at Rs 39,000 per kg on some buying support from coin makers ahead of Diwali.
Traders said restricted buying from jewellers and retailers mainly kept precious metals at previous levels.
Globally, gold added 0.5 per cent to $1,227.16 an ounce - the highest level since September 26 in Singapore.
In line with overall trends, silver coins continued to be traded at Rs 68,000 for buying and Rs 69,000 for selling of 100 pieces in limited deals.
