At the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX), gold for delivery in April moved higher by Rs 147 to Rs 30,394 per ten grams after moving in range of Rs 30,280 - Rs 30,515.

Similarly, silver for delivery in May climbed by Rs 555 to Rs 46,452 per Kg.

Gold in overseas markets, which normally set price trend on the domestic front, extended its gains for second straight day today to its highest in 5-1/2 months as global uncertainty over economic growth and tensions in Ukraine burnished the metal's safe-haven appeal.

Spot gold last quoted up USD 6.20 or 0.46 percent at USD 1,356.70 per ounce after making a high and low of USD 1,365.10 and USD 1,353.40 in intra-day trade.

Meanwhile, gold prices recovered by Rs 320 to Rs 31,020 per ten grams in the national capital today on fresh buying by stockists and retailers amid firm global cues.

Silver also extended gains for the second day by rising Rs 600 to Rs 46,700 per kg on increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

Gold of 99.9 and 99.5 percent purity rebounded by Rs 320 each to Rs 31,020 and Rs 30,820 per ten grams, respectively. It had lost Rs 360 in the precious three sessions. Sovereign, however, held steady at Rs 25,400 per piece of eight grams.

Silver ready advanced by Rs 600 to Rs 46,700 per kg and weekly-based delivery by Rs 550 to Rs 46,450 per kg. The white metal had gained Rs 170 yesterday.
