New Delhi: Gold prices drifted lower by Rs70 to Rs31,750 per 10 grams at the bullion market in Delhi on Saturday owing to easing demand from local jewellers at prevailing levels amid a weak trend overseas.
Bullion traders said slackness in demand from local jewellers and retailers at current levels along with a weak trend overseas, mainly weighed on gold prices.
Globally, gold fell 0.50% to $1,346.50 an ounce in New York yesterday.
