New Delhi: Gold futures prices recovered marginally by 0.16 percent to Rs 26,763 per 10 gm Wednesday largely in tune with a firming trend overseas.
At the Multi Commodity Exchange, gold for delivery in August rose by Rs 43, or 0.16 percent, to Rs 27,097 per 10 gm, with a business turnover of 27 lots.
Similarly, the metal for delivery in June moved up by Rs 41, or 0.15 percent, to Rs 26,722 per 10 gm, with a trade volume of 977 lots.
