Amid weakening global trend and low demand from jewellers, gold prices drifted further by Rs 190 to Rs 26,060 per ten grams at the bullion market today.

Silver also eased by Rs 100 to Rs 33,400 per kg due to lack of buying support from industrial units and coin makers.

Marketmen said apart from a weak global trend, muted demand from jewellers and retailers at the domestic spot markets dampened the sentiment.

    The global economy is like the dam that cracked in 2008 and left the boy with his finger stuck in the crack keeping the dam from bursting and now the great flood is about to swamp us all. Can't keep the chickens from roosting.
