    Gold rate slips further, nears Rs 49,500 level

    Synopsis

    Globally, gold steadied as the dollar rally took a pause, while traders were on the sidelines as political uncertainty built ahead of the first presidential election debate between the US President Donald Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden this week.

    Physical gold demand limped higher in top Asian hubs last week, with dealers in India easing discounts to the lowest level in six weeks, as a drop in prices saw a little interest return in the precious metal.

    NEW DELHI: Gold and silver prices declined further in Monday's session as hopes of a US stimulus package grew. Traders also took positions before the RBI monetary policy and the US presidential election debate.

    Investors looked for any signs of further stimulus after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Sunday a deal could be reached with the White House on a coronavirus relief package and that talks were continuing.

    Gold futures on MCX were down 0.23 per cent or Rs 116 at Rs 49,543 per 10 grams. Silver futures dropped 0.99 per cent or Rs 587 to Rs 58,440 per kg.
