Pure gold (99.9 purity) edged down by Rs 5 to end at Rs 27,835 per 10 grams as compared to Rs 27,840.

Silver (.999 fineness) slumped by Rs 235 to finish at Rs 43,040 per kg against overnight level of Rs 43,275.

Meanwhile, the yellow metal rebounded modestly in global trade after a prolonged downtrend on bargain hunting despite a stronger dollar and monetary policy concerns.

Gold for December delivery rose by $4.80 to close at $1,280.20 an ounce on the Comex division of the NYMEX late on Friday, while silver moved down to $19.39 an ounce.
