Mumbai, Dec 6: The spot Silver and Gold fell today in the opening session by Rs 100 per kg and Rs 110 per ten gm respectively from their last close on sluggish demand by bulk consumers, traders at the Bombay Bullion Association (BBA) said.

Reports from Singapore market said that Gold held onto new New York levels but looked vulnerable after a firmer US Dollar sparked selling the previous day and pushed the price below the psychological level of USD 800 an ounce.
