Both gold and silver bounced back in the national capital on Thursday on stockists buying in tandem with a firming global trend.
While gold recovered sharply by Rs. 360 to Rs. 28,550 per 10 grams, silver gained Rs. 500 to Rs. 44,700 per kg.
Traders said stockists buying in line with a firm global trend mainly led an recovery move in both gold and silver prices.
Gold in New York, which normally sets the price trend on the domestic front, rose by $10.20 to $1,388.40 an ounce and silver by 0.48% to $21.79 an ounce.
Besides, investors shifting their funds from weakening equity to rising bullion also supported the uptrend.
On the domestic front, gold of 99.9 and 99.5% rebounded by Rs. 360 each to Rs. 28,550 and Rs. 28,350 per 10 grams, respectively. It had lost Rs. 325 on Wednesday. Sovereigns followed suit and rose by Rs. 100 to Rs. 24,400 per piece of eight grams.
Similarly, silver ready recovered by Rs. 500 to Rs. 44,700 per kg and weekly-based delivery by Rs. 420 to Rs. 43,910 per kg. The metal had lost Rs. 490 in the previous session.
Silver coins also spurted by Rs. 1,000 to Rs. 80,000 for buying and Rs. 81000 for selling of 100 pieces.
