NEW DELHI: Gold and silver futures fell on Monday as Turkey replaced its central bank governor with a high interest rate critic led to investors flocking towards the safety of the dollar, on fears that the move would threaten other financial markets.

President Tayyip Erdogan, on Saturday, unexpectedly fired Turkey’s central bank chief, Naci Agbal, replacing him with a former ruling party legislator and opponent of tight monetary policy, Sahap Kavcioglu.

Gold futures on MCX were down 0.07 per cent or Rs 32 at Rs 44,989 per 10 grams. Silver futures dropped 1.38 per cent or Rs 929 to Rs 66,598 per kg.
