New Delhi: Snapping its five-day rising streak, gold prices slipped by Rs 30 to Rs 31,520 per 10 grams at the bullion market Friday amid slackened demand from jewellers at domestic spot market and a weak trend overseas.
However, silver held steady at Rs 46,800 per kg in scattered deals from industrial units.
Traders said besides a subdued trend in global market, easing demand from jewellers and retailers at prevailing levels led to fall in gold prices.
Globally, gold fell 0.19 percent to USD 1,334.20 an ounce in Singapore.
