Gold prices rebound on jewellers’ buying
New Delhi: Gold prices recovered by Rs50 to Rs30,250 per 10 grams at the bullion market on Tuesday on mild buying by local jewellers, shrugging off a weak trend overseas. Silver, however, held steady at Rs39,000 per kg in limited deals from industrial units.
Traders said scattered buying by local jewellers to meet ongoing wedding season demand at domestic spot market mainly helped gold prices to recover, but a weak trend overseas capped the rise. Globally, gold rate fell 0.06% to $1,274.80 an ounce in Singapore.
