New Delhi:Snapping a three-day gaining streak, gold prices Wednesday fell by Rs 110 to close at Rs 32,540 per 10 gram at the bullion market in the national capital on lacklustre demand from local jewellers and weak global cues.
Silver rates were also down by Rs 25 to Rs 38,550 per kg on weak demand from coin makers and industrial units.
