Gold futures fall on weak domestic cues

Analysts said the fall in gold futures was mostly attributed to profit-booking by participants at the domestic market.

Gold futures traded lower by Rs 177 to Rs 37,986 per 10 gram on August 16 due to profit-booking by participants in tandem with precious metal prices slipping overseas.

In a similar fashion, gold to be delivered in December fell by Rs 256, or 0.66 per cent, at Rs 38,635 per 10 gram in 526 lots.
