Standard gold (99.5 purity) dropped by Rs 210 to end at Rs 29,750 per 10 grams from Thursday’s closing level of Rs 29,960. Pure gold (99.9 purity) also fell by a similar margin to conclude at Rs 29,900 per 10 grams as compared to Rs 30,110 previously.
Silver (.999 fineness) slumped by Rs 390 per kg to close at Rs 42,680 as against Rs 43,070 on Thursday.
