Silver declines on global cues
Silver prices declined by Rs 154 to Rs 54,215 per kg in futures trade today mostly in line with a weakening trend in global markets as strong dollar reduced the appeal for the precious metals.
Also, subdued demand at prevailing levels at domestic spot markets weighed on the silver futures prices.
