Gold Prices Drop, But Still Above Rs 38,000: 10 Things To Know

Globally, spot gold was trading higher at $1,504 an ounce in New York.

Gold prices on Friday decreased by Rs 140 but traded above the Rs 38,000 mark in the national capital, news agency Press Trust of India (PTI) reported. The yellow metal settled at Rs 38,330 per 10 gram. Easing in demand from jewellers despite the precious metal gaining overseas led to the fall in gold rates, the report said. On Thursday, gold prices touched an all-time high of Rs 38,470 per 10 gram. In the past two days, gold rates advanced by Rs 1,663.
Here are 10 things to know about gold and silver prices today:

  5. Sovereign gold, on the other hand, remained steady at Rs 28,500 per eight grams on Friday.
  6. Globally, spot gold was trading higher at $1,504 an ounce in New York amid ongoing trade tensions between US-China and slowing global economic outlook which lifted gold's appeal as safe-haven asset.

  8. Silver prices also declined Rs 290 to Rs 44,010 per kg in the national capital on Friday due to reduced offtake by industrial units. The weekly-based delivery plunged Rs 665 to Rs 43,065 per kg.
