Gold prices hit a one-month high and reclaimed the Rs. 27,000 per 10-gram level at the bullion market in Mumbai on Monday, on higher offtake by stockists and investors coupled with firm buying triggered by bullish global trend.

Silver, which had been on a southward journey since the last six trading sessions, rebounded strongly and retraced the Rs. 41,000 per kg mark on the back of sustained speculative buying amid heavy industrial off-take.
Standard gold of 99.5% purity shot up by Rs. 440 to settle at Rs. 27,325 per 10 gm from last Saturday's closing level of Rs. 26,885.
Pure gold of 99.9% purity climbed up by Rs. 435 to conclude at Rs. 27,465 per 10 gm from Rs. 27,030.
Silver ready (.999 fineness) zoomed by Rs. 1,000 to end at Rs. 41,885 per kg as against Rs. 40,885 last weekend.
In overseas markets, the yellow metal surged to hit one-month high on heavy investor offtake amid weak dollar as it broke the tough resistance of $1,300-level an ounce on diminishing nervousness that US Federal Reserve would soon end monetary easing.
In London, gold spot was bid higher at $1,314.99 an ounce in early trade and silver bid up at $19.87 an ounce.
