Gold eased by Rs 50 to Rs 26,600 per ten grams at the bullion market today owing to slackened demand from jewellers even as the metal strengthened overseas.

Silver, however, recovered by Rs 100 to Rs 36,800 per kg.

Bullion traders attributed the fall in gold prices to easing demand from jewellers and retailers at current levels. But, a firming trend in the precious metal overseas, capped the losses.

Globally, gold added 1.20 per cent to USD 1,152.70 an ounce in London after minutes of the Federal Reserve’s last meeting hinted that the central bank would not rush to raise US interest rates. Silver was also up by 1.63 per cent to USD 15.92 an ounce.

Sovereign, however, traded flat at Rs 22,400 per piece of eight grams.
