NEW DELHI: Gold prices fell Rs 50 to Rs 74,600 per 10 grams in the capital on Wednesday amid fall in precious metal rates in overseas markets, according to HDFC Securities.

“Gold fell further on Wednesday as investors evaluated recent statements from the US Federal Reserve officials that downplayed the timing of interest rate cuts.

“In , gold is quoted lower, with major resistance at Rs 74,500 for the time being. Minor profit booking may continue, potentially bringing prices down towards Rs 73,000,” Jateen Trivedi, VP Analyst of Commodity and Currency at LKP Securities, said.
