Gold prices drop on subdued demand, global cues

Gold prices declined by Rs 120 to  Rs 27,070 per 10 grams at the bullion market yesterday due to  sluggish demand from jewellers amid a weakening trend  overseas,reports PTI.
Silver followed suit and traded lower by Rs 135 to Rs  36,750 per kg on reduced offtake by industrial units and coin  makers.
