Gold decline on weak global cues on Dhanteras
New Delhi: Gold futures prices declined by 0.47 per cent Thursday as traders indulged in reducing their positions influenced by a weakening global trend amid profit selling at higher levels.

Similarly, the metal for delivery in December contract moved down by 0.45 per cent to Rs 15,850 per ten gram in 4,181 lots.
