Here are key things to know about gold and silver prices today:
The rise in local demand, along with positive global trend, mainly led to the upward movement in gold prices, the PTI report quoted analysts as saying.
Globally, gold edged up on Monday, to hold above the psychological $1,500 level, as investors demand for safe-haven bullion increased on concerns over slowing global economic growth as the trade war between Washington and Beijing drags on, reported news agency Reuters.
Spot gold was up 0.5 per cent at $1,503.66 per ounce in intraday trade, while US gold futures were also up 0.5 per cent at $1,515.70 an ounce.
The yellow metal has made considerable gains in the past few days due to ongoing trade conflict between the world's two largest economies.
In the national capital, gold of 99.9 per cent and 99.5 per cent purity gained Rs 50 to Rs 38,470 and Rs 38,300 per 10 grams, respectively.
