Gold falls by Rs 260 to Rs 27,050 per 10 grams
New Delhi: Both the precious metals, gold and silver, moved down in the national capital Tuesday, owing to slackened demand at prevailing higher levels amid a weak global trend.
While gold fell by Rs 260 to Rs 27,050 per 10 grams, silver lost Rs 630 at Rs 41,100 per kg on reduced offtake by jewellers and industrial units.
Traders said sluggish demand at prevailing higher levels amid a weak global trend on concern that recent gains may deter physical purchases, mainly influenced the sentiment.

On the domestic front, gold of 99.9 and 99.5 percent purity fell by Rs 260 each to Rs 27,050 and Rs 26,850 per 10 grams, respectively. Sovereigns followed suit and shed Rs 50 to Rs 24,150 per piece of eight grams.
