(PTI) Gold price declined by ₹100 to ₹60,200 per 10 gram in the national capital on Wednesday amid weak cues in overseas markets, according to HDFC Securities.
In the previous trade, the yellow metal had ended at ₹60,300 per 10 gram.
"Gold extended its fall on Wednesday, with spot gold prices (24 carats) in the Delhi markets trading at ₹60,200/10 gram, down by ₹100, in response to bearish cues from overseas markets," Saumil Gandhi, senior analyst of commodities at HDFC Securities, said.
Silver also plunged ₹700 to ₹74,800 per kilogram.
In global markets, gold and silver were trading lower at USD 1,924 per ounce and USD 23.35 per ounce, respectively.
"Gold slipped to one-week lows, as US treasury yields and the dollar index advanced on expectations that interest rates are likely to remain high.
"The US dollar rose to a near six-month high...in the last session, while benchmark 10-year bond yields reached their highest level in over a week, dampening appetite for bullion," said Navneet Damani, senior vice-president of commodity research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services.
On Wednesday, the market's trajectory will be shaped by the forthcoming reports on the US Services PMI, with continued attention on indications regarding monetary policy ahead of interest rate decision later this month, Chintan Mehta, Chief Executive Officer of Abans Holdings, said.
