Gold slips from record high; silver up
Gold on Saturday slipped from records and shed Rs 10 to Rs 29,740 per 10 grams due to demand at prevailing higher levels, while silver spurted by Rs 350 to Rs 56,250 (USD 556) per kg on speculative buying.

Traders said fall in demand at existing higher levels mainly pulled down gold prices from record highs.

Speculative buying and increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers pushed up silver prices, they said.

On the domestic front, gold of 99.9 and 99.5 per cent purity declined by Rs 10 each to Rs 29,740 and Rs 29,600 per 10 grams, respectively. The yellow metal had climbed to an all-time high level of Rs 29,750 on Friday.

However, sovereigns found selective buying and rose by Rs 50 to Rs 23,850 per piece of eight grams.

Silver ready surged by Rs 350 to Rs 56,250 per kg and weekly-based delivery by Rs 200 to Rs 56,600 per kg, while silver coins rose by Rs 1000 to Rs 66,000 for buying and Rs 67,000 for selling of 100 pieces.
