Gold prices rose in tandem with overseas trend


New Delhi: Gold prices soared to over 14-month high of Rs 31,600 per ten gram, a level last seen on November 9, 2016. Gold prices rose by Rs 330 at the bullion market, in tandem with overseas trend. Traders said the gains in gold prices also supported by strong demand from local jewellers to meet the wedding season demand. Silver prices also gained and reclaimed the Rs 40,000 per kg mark on the back of increased offtake by industrial units.
