New Delhi: Gold prices on Monday slipped below the Rs 29,000-mark by sinking Rs 100 to Rs 28,950 per 10 grams, dragged down by slack demand from local jewellers, even as the metal made headway overseas.

Silver advanced by Rs 180 to Rs 38,180 per kg, riding on increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers, along with a firm trend.

Globally, gold rose by 0.12 percent to USD 1,229.90 an ounce after the dollar fell to multi-month lows as the prospects for an interest rate hike this year dimmed due to softer US economic data. Silver rose by 0.19 percent to USD 15.98 an ounce in Singapore.
