Gold on Wednesday regained the Rs. 29,000 level after nearly four months by surging Rs. 755 to Rs. 29,200 per 10 grams in the national capital on brisk buying by stockists and investors driven by firming global trend.
Silver also zoomed up by Rs. 915 to Rs. 42,260 per kg on increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers.
The sentiment bolstered after gold climbed in global markets as investors awaited the conclusion of a Federal Reserve meeting on whether the central bank may start reducing its stimulus program in the coming months, traders said.
Gold in Singapore, which normally sets the price trend on the domestic front, rose by one per cent to USD 1,339.74 an ounce and silver by 1.4 per cent to USD 20.01 an ounce.
Weak rupee against us dollar which make the import of the precious metals costlier and investors shifting funds from melting equities also influenced the sentiment.
On the domestic front, gold of 99.9 and 99.5 per cent purity spurted by Rs. 755 each to Rs. 29,200 and Rs. 29,000 per 10 grams, respectively, a level last seen on April 12.
However, sovereigns held steady at Rs. 24,400 per piece of eight grams in scattered deals.
In a similar fashion, silver ready jumped up by Rs. 915 to Rs. 42,260 per kg and weekly-based delivery by Rs. 42,160 per kg respectively.

Silver coins also sky-rocketed by Rs. 1000 to Rs. 81,000 for buying and Rs. 82,000 for selling of 100 pieces.
