Gold futures prices on Wednesday rose by Rs. 135 to Rs. 30,066 per 10 grams as speculators enlarged their positions on the back of a rise in demand in the spot market amid a firm global trend.

grams in a business turnover of 1,633 lots.

Similarly, the metal for delivery in August moved up by Rs. 119, or 0.40%, to Rs. 29,687 per 10 grams in 6,478

Market analysts attributed the rise in gold futures prices to increased buying by speculators on the back of a rise in demand in the spot market in view of festive season.

They said firming global trend also supported the uptrend in gold.
