Gold near 3-week low, importers wait for further fall
Gold importers in India, the world's biggest buyer of the metal, waited for prices to fall further as the yellow metal was trading near its lowest level in more than three weeks due to a stronger rupee, offsetting firm global markets.

At 2:18 p.m., the most-active gold for October delivery on the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) was 0.18 percent lower at Rs 31,254 per 10 grams, after hitting a low of Rs 31,213, a level last seen on September 3, due to a firmer rupee.

"Levels of Rs 31,200-Rs 31,300 look attractive, from a hedging perspective, the rupee has gained bullion players' confidence," said a dealer with a private bank importing bullion.

The rupee plays an important role in determining the landed cost of the dollar-quoted yellow metal.

Global gold edged up from its two-week low, but a stronger dollar capped the gains.

The festival and wedding season is underway in India, and will continue till November, before tapering off in December.

Gold imports to India are likely to fall by as much as 26 percent, or by 200 tonnes to 250 tonnes, in 2012 as record high prices hit consumer budgets.

Silver futures also edged lower following the yellow metal.

The most-active silver for December delivery on the MCX was 0.14 percent lower at Rs 62,570 per kg.
