Gold futures extend weakness on global trend, subdued demand

NEW DELHI, May 30: Gold futures prices today fell by 0.23 per cent to Rs 26,768 per 10 grams as participants engaged in trimming positions amid weak global cues.
Besides, subdued demand at domestic spot markets, too, weighed on the prices.

Similarly, the metal for delivery in August shed Rs 28, or 0.11 per cent, to Rs 25,810 per 10 gm in 194 lots.
Globally, gold fell by USD 2.70 to USD 1255.10 an ounce in New York yesterday.
Analysts said off-loading of positions by speculators on sluggish spot demand and a weak trend overseas, mainly put pressure on gold prices in futures trade here. (PTI)
