In the international market, gold prices slipped to their lowest in four weeks on Monday as prospects of aggressive policy tightening by the US Federal Reserve and a stronger dollar dented the precious metal’s appeal, news agency Reuters reported.

Spot gold fell 0.7 per cent to $1,916.17 per ounce, earlier hitting its lowest since March 29 at $1,911.80. US gold futures were 0.9 per cent lower at $1,917.60, the report said.
