Silver, however, recovered by Rs 60 to Rs 37,110 per kg on scattered enquiries from industrial units.
Traders said a weakening global trend where gold traded lower as investors weighed the prospect for higher US borrowing costs against a dimming global economic outlook before a Federal Reserve meeting this week, mainly weighed on gold prices.

In the national capital, gold of 99.9 and 99.5 percent purity declined by Rs 20 each to Rs 27,070and Rs 26,920 per ten grams, respectively. It had lost Rs 245 in the previous
two sessions.
Sovereign, however, continued to be traded at last level of Rs 22,400 per piece of eight gram.
On the other hand, silver ready recovered by Rs 60 to Rs 37,110 per kg and weekly-based delivery by Rs 10 to Rs 36,950 per kg.
Meanwhile, silver coins remained flat at Rs 52,000 for buying and Rs 53,000 for selling of 100 pieces in the absence of worthwhile activity.
