New Delhi: A sluggish overseas trend and softness in local demand kept gold prices lower for the second day on the trot, which fell Rs 190 to Rs 29,060 per 10 grams on Friday.

Silver too declined by Rs 150 to Rs 42,150 per kg, reflecting a reduced offtake from industrial units and coin makers. The weak global pricing of the yellow metal had mostly to do with the rising strength of the dollar which dims the former’s safe haven appeal.

Demand from jewellers and retailers at the domestic spot market was not forthcoming either. Globally, gold prices fell 0.10% to $1,241.20 an ounce in Singapore.
