Gold prices fell for the third dayon Saturday losing Rs 115 to trade at Rs 19,125 per ten gram in the bullion market in New Delhi on sustained selling by stockists at existing higher levels amid fall in demand.
Silver also fell by Rs 250 to Rs 31,450 per kg on reduced offtake by industrial units and coin makers.
Marketmen said sustained selling by stockists at existing higher levels mainly led to fall in gold prices.
They said that retail customers postponed buying in anticipation of more fall in gold prices, which also influenced the trading sentiment.
