Gold prices were down by Rs 162 at Rs 29,353 per 10 gram in futures trade today amid a weakening global trend and profit-booking by speculators.
Gold for delivery in June was trading lower by Rs 162, or 0.55 per cent, to Rs 29,352 per 10 gram, in a business turnover of 1,048 lots at the Multi Commodity Exchange.
On similar lines, the metal for delivery in far-month August eased by Rs 151, or 0.51 per cent, to Rs 29,450 per 10 gram in 11 lots.
