Nepal Gold and Silver Dealers Association (Negosida) that fixes the price of gold in the local market, said the drop in prices have relieved the buyers psychologically.

However it said despite the price fluctuation, demand for yellow metal continued to remain high due to wedding consumption.

According to Negosida, the daily demand for gold has jumped to 40 kg with the onset of wedding season.
