New Delhi: Gold prices Thursday declined slightly by Rs 50 to Rs 32,450 per 10 gm at the bullion market in the national capital, due to weak trend overseas. Silver, however, witnessed a jump of Rs 525 to Rs 38,650 per kg on increased buying by industrial units and coin makers.
Traders said weak trend overseas and lacklustre demand from local jewellers put pressure on the yellow metal in the domestic market.
