Last week, gold had tumbled over 4% in India. And from August 7th highs of about 56,200, gold is now down about 4,000 per 10 gram.

In global markets, gold prices fell today after logging worst week in five months. Spot gold was down 0.2% at $1,941.90 an ounce. Gold prices had slumped 4.5% last week, its biggest weekly decline since March. Among other precious metals, silver today slipped 0.6% to $26.25 per ounce while platinum rose 1% to $945.55.

A softer dollar helped cap losses for gold. A weaker greenback makes gold cheaper for holders of other currencies. US treasuries were steady, with the 10-year yield at 0.70%. Against a basket of currencies the dollar traded at 92.985.

The recent volatility in gold prices hit the investment demand in gold. The holdings of SPDR Gold Trust , the world’s largest gold-backed exchange-traded fund or gold ETF, fell 0.30% to 1,248.29 tonnes on Friday.

Gold traders will be awaiting the minutes from the Federal Reserve’s most recent policy meeting for more clues into the policy stance of the US central bank. The minutes will be released later this week.
