Gold price glitters on jewellers’ buying, silver tops ₹39,000-mark

New Delhi-India (Aug 12)  Gold prices rebounded by ₹180 to ₹30,700 per 10 grams at the bullion market on Saturday on emergence of brisk buying by local jewellers even as the metal weakened overseas.

Silver also recaptured the ₹39,000-mark per kg by gaining ₹105 due to increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

Traders said increased buying by local jewellers to meet festive season demand at domestic spot market led to the recovery in gold prices but a weak trend overseas squeezed the gain.
