New Delhi: Gold prices slipped by Rs 80 to Rs 62,270 per 10 grams in the national capital on Thursday amid a fall in the prices of the precious metal in global markets, according to HDFC Securities.

The yellow metal had ended at Rs 62,350 per 10 grams in the previous trade. However, silver rallied by Rs 600 to Rs 74,600 per kilogram, whereas it had closed at Rs 74,000 per kg in the previous session.

“Spot gold prices (24 carats) in the Delhi markets are trading at Rs 62,270 per 10 grams, down by Rs 80, taking bearish cues from overseas markets,” said Saumil Gandhi, senior analyst of commodities at HDFC Securities.
