New Delhi: Gold prices on Monday recovered by Rs10 to Rs14,300 per 10 gram in the bullion market here on local buying amid better trend in the global market.
Silver also regained strength and recorded a gain of Rs50 at 20,400 per kg on increased offtake by industrial units.
Marketmen said fresh buying by local parties at the existing lower levels amid reports of a better trend in the overseas market mainly helped gold prices to recover marginally.
They said the precious metal gained $1.55 to $870.35 dollar an ounce in London on speculation that the falling stock markets may revive demand for the gold as a haven.
