Gold futures recover on overseas trend
New Delhi: Supported by a rebound in overseas markets, gold futures prices rose by 0.12 percent to Rs 27,999 per 10 grams on Thursday, as speculators created fresh positions after falling over 3 percent in yesterday's trade.

At the Multi Commodity Exchange, gold for delivery in most-active, April contract recovered by Rs 47, or 0.12 percent, to Rs 27,999 per 10 grams, with a business turnover of 2,256 lots. The contract had ended 3.2 percent lower at Rs 27,952 per 10 grams in yesterday's trade.

In a similar fashion, the metal for delivery in June moved up by Rs 36, or 0.11 percent to Rs 28,377 per 10 grams, with a trade volume of 98 lots.

Analysts attributed the recovery to a rebound in overseas markets as investors bought the metal after it fell to the lowest level in more than a month.

Gold rose by 1.4 percent USD 1,720.47 an ounce in Singapore in early trade today.

The metal lost 4.9 percent yesterday in the biggest one-day slump since December 1, 2008 after the Federal Reserve chairman gave no signal that the US central bank will take new steps to bolster the economy.
