Gold prices rose by Rs 180 to Rs 32,850 per 10 grams at the bullion market here Wednesday due to fresh buying from jewellers amid a firm trend overseas, according to the All India Sarafa Association. Tracking gold, silver too gained by Rs 100 to Rs 38,220 per kilogram following increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers. Traders said the sentiment turned bullish on the back of a pick-up in buying support from local jewellers amid a positive trend overseas as rising US-China trade tensions boosted gold's safe-haven appeal.
