Silver prices fell by Rs 213 to Rs 37,399 per kg in futures trade Tuesday amid profit-booking by speculators at current levels. However, a firming trend overseas restricted the losses.
At the Multi Commodity Exchange, silver for delivery in May traded down Rs 213, or 0.53 per cent, at Rs 37,399 per kg. It clocked a business volume of 22,275 lots.
