New Delhi: Gold prices recovered on the bullion market on 15 March on revival of buying by stockists and retail customers influenced by firm overseas trends, and closed with a gain of Rs15 at Rs9,345 per ten grams.
Marketmen said buying activity picked up as investors found no other option of parking their funds in view of a steep rise in stock markets across the globe.
They said firming international gold prices, which normally sets the price band in domestic markets here was another boosting factor.
