Gold futures edge lower on MCX

Gold futures edged lower on MCX as speculators offloaded their holdings amid a weakening trend in the overseas markets where gold dropped for a seventh straight day, heading for the longest run of declines since May as comments from leading central bankers boosted speculation that interest rates may rise in coming months.
