New Delhi: Gold prices bounced Rs 85 to Rs 30,500 per 10 grams Tuesday following uptick in festive and wedding season demand from jewellers and retailers at the domestic spot market amid signs of a strong global trend.
Silver too rebounded Rs 100 to Rs 42,900 per kg on higher off-take by industrial units and coin makers.
Bullion traders attributed the recovery in gold prices to the surge in demand as reflected in festive and wedding season sales, and firm global cues.
