Gold price recoups after positive global leads, buying spurt
New Delhi: Gold received support from a positive global trend and fresh buying by local jewellers as the price recovered by Rs 25 to Rs 30,150 per 10 grams at the bullion market Tuesday.
However, silver gave up Rs 30 at Rs 43,850 per kg on lower offtake from industrial units and coin makers.
Traders attributed the rise in gold prices to a firm trend overseas and pick-up in buying by local jewellers driven by the ongoing wedding demand.
