NEW DELHI: Gold prices on Monday remained almost flat at Rs 39,210 per 10 grams at the bullion market in the national capital, amid weak spot demand.

The yellow metal slipped Rs 30 as compared to the previous close of Rs 39,240 on Saturday. Silver also fell by Rs 90 to Rs 46,390 per kilogram as against the Saturday's closing price of Rs 46,480 per kg.

HDFC Securities Senior Analyst (Commodities) Tapan Patel said, "Spot gold prices for 24 karat gold in Delhi were trading marginally down to Rs 39,210 on weak spot demand in a holiday-shortened week".

He, however, added that the weaker rupee has a limited downside in gold prices. The rupee opened on a weak note and declined by 21 paise to 71.09 against the US dollar in opening trade on Monday, as sustained foreign fund outflows weighed on investor community.

In the international market also, gold was trading marginally down at USD 1,503 an ounce, while silver was slightly lower at USD 17.47 an ounce in New York.

Patel said, "The international gold prices traded steady above USD 1,500 as investors are awaiting for the development from key US-China trade talks. The constant ETF inflows in gold and aggressive gold buying from China and other emerging economies have supported gold prices to trade up".

The public unrest in Hong Kong and Iraq may add a risk premium to gold prices, while impeachment inquiry on US President Donald Trump may also support gold prices against a stronger dollar, he noted.
