"Spot gold prices in the Delhi markets traded at ₹56,842 per grams, down ₹70 per 10 grams," said an analyst at HDFC Securities.
In the overseas market, gold was quoting lower at USD 1,924 per ounce while silver was up at USD 23.71 per ounce.
Comex gold prices traded negative in Asian trading hours on Friday, the analyst said.
"Gold prices fell due to a strong US economic data that could prompt the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates higher for longer. Fed officials are expecting the rates to be above 5 per cent by the end of this year," Navneet Damani, Senior VP - Commodity Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services, said.
Move in Dollar Index and US Core PCE will be important to focus on, Damani said.
