Bullion: Gold prices maintained its bearishness for the third week in a row, dropping below the key Rs 28,000-mark at the domestic bullion market on the back of subdued demand from stockists and traders, even as the metal strengthened overseas.

The yellow-metal shed a whopping 3.26 per cent in its third week downslide, or Rs 930 per 10 grams.

Elsewhere, silver also witnessed a second week fall, on sustained speculative selling by stockists and investors coupled with lack of demand from industrial users.
