New Delhi: After gold and silver prices jumped sharply in the past week, both the metals are trading a tad bit lower on Wednesday. The sharp rise in the prices last week came amid lower investor confidence in high-risk investment instruments like stocks due to rising Covid-19 cases across the country, which eventually surged the demand for gold. 

On Wednesday, gold futures on Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) were trading lower by Rs 152 at Rs 47,481 per 10 grams while Silver futures were trading at Rs 529 lower to  71,400 per kg.
