New Delhi: Gold prices slipped by Rs 75 to Rs 30,450 per 10 grams on Friday due to lower jewellery demand.
A firm trend overseas however capped the slide.

In Mumbai, gold prices, however, recovered marginally to close at Rs 29,460 per 10 grams today due to mild demand from stockists and retailers amid bullish global cues.

Pure gold (99.9 purity) also moved up by a similar margin to end at Rs 29,610 per 10 grams against Rs 29,595 earlier.
Globally, gold rose today as the dollar softened on uncertainty about the progress of what would be the biggest overhaul of US taxes since the 1980s.
