Gold prices slipped in early trade in the domestic futures market on October 28 tracking trends of the international markets.
Gold prices eased in international markets after the dollar gained some strength against its peers as the hopes of US stimulus weakened after the US President said a deal is possible after the November election.
Trump on Tuesday said a coronavirus economic relief deal would likely come after the November 3 election, with the White House unable to bridge differences with fellow Republicans in the US Senate as well as congressional Democrats.
However, concerns over rising cases of coronavirus and lacklustre equity markets saved gold from witnessing a strong selloff.
In the US and Europe, coronavirus cases have been rapidly rising and reports suggest that France is prepared for a fresh lockdown as new daily confirmed coronavirus cases hit the highest ever.
Markets will look ahead to a televised address on Wednesday evening by French President Emmanuel Macron as authorities explore fresh restrictions to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
At 0940 hours, MCX December gold contracts were trading lower by 0.10 percent at Rs 50,909 per 10 gram. December silver futures were trading 0.45 percent lower at Rs 62,000 per kg.

Weighing on gold is uncertainty about US stimulus and recovery in the US dollar index from recent lows.
However, supporting price is ETF inflows, rise in Chinese imports, and safe-haven buying amid rising virus cases and mixed economic data from major economies.
Gold may remain choppy as equities and the US dollar are likely to trade mixed ahead of US elections however general bias may be on the upside on the back of safe-haven buying amid rising virus cases and uneven recovery.
