Gold slips below Rs 32,000-mark on global cues

In New Delhi, gold of 99.9% and 99.5% purity started the week on a subdued note in tandem with weak global cues and plunged further to end at Rs 31,600 and Rs 31,450 per ten grams respectively, showing a sharp fall of Rs 770 each.

Gold lost its glitter and dipped below the Rs 32,000-mark to close sharply lower at Rs 31,600 per ten grams at the bullion market during the week, taking weak cues from overseas markets and fall in demand from local jewellers.

Silver also slumped below the Rs 41,000-mark due to poor offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

Sentiment remained downbeat on the back of weak global trend where gold fell after stronger than forecast US payrolls data buoyed the dollar and indicated that the Federal Reserve remains on track to raise interest rates later this month.

Besides, fading demand from local jewellers and retailers at domestic spot market, weighed on the gold prices.

Globally, gold ended the week lower at $1,293.10 an ounce and silver at $16.38 an ounce in New York.

In the national capital, gold of 99.9% and 99.5% purity started the week on a subdued note in tandem with weak global cues and plunged further to end at Rs 31,600 and Rs 31,450 per ten grams respectively, showing a sharp fall of Rs 770 each.

Sovereign, however, moved in a narrow range in scattered deals and settled at the previous level of Rs 24,800 per piece of eight grams.
