Extending declines for the fourth day, gold prices on Tuesday fell by another Rs. 50 to close at Rs. 28,550 per ten gram at the bullion market in the national capital due to subdued demand from jewellers amid a weak trend overseas on easing geo-political tensions.

However, silver found fresh buying support from industrial units and recovered by Rs. 420 to Rs. 43,300 per kg.

Traders said apart from subdued demand from jewellers and retailers, a weakening global trend on easing of tensions in Ukraine mainly kept pressure on gold prices.

Furthermore, strengthening rupee against the US dollar, making imports cheaper and shifting of funds towards surging equity markets also influenced gold prices, they said.

Globally, gold in New York fell 0.56% to $ 1,297.20 an ounce in on Monday's trade.

In Delhi, gold of 99.9 and 99.5% purity traded Rs. 50 each down at Rs. 28,550 and Rs. 28,350 per ten gram respectively. The yellow metal had lost Rs. 220 in the past three days.
