Gold gains Rs 76; silver tumbles Rs 710

New Delhi, May 19: Gold in the national capital on Thursday gained Rs 76 to reach Rs 50,027 per 10 grams, supported by rupee depreciation, according to HDFC Securities.

The rupee extended its losses and slumped 10 paise to close at a fresh record low of 77.72 (provisional) against the US dollar on Thursday, weighed down by a negative trend in domestic equities and unabated foreign fund outflows.

Gold prices traded weak with spot gold prices at COMEX trading marginally down at USD 1,812 per ounce on Thursday.
