Gold prices dropped in the national capital on Wednesday on strong rupee, according to HDFC Securities.

Gold prices declined on Wednesday on the strong rupee and muted global sentiment. Global gold prices remained rangebound as monetary easing uncertainties by major central banks supported demand while trade talk optimism lifted other assets, curbing gold's gains. Gold rates in Delhi fell by Rs 215 to Rs 38,676 per 10 gram, reported PTI. Following the yellow metal, silver prices also declined by Rs 770 to Rs 47,690 per kilogram.
