Gold glitters on jewellers' buying; weak rupee


New Delhi, Sep 10 (PTI) Gold overcame a sluggish global trend by surging Rs 200 to trade at Rs 31,550 per 10 gram on Monday on increased buying by local jewellers.

Furthermore, a depreciating rupee which plunged to a fresh record low of 72.67 against the dollar, making imports costlier, fuelled the upmove, traders said.

Silver too advanced by Rs 175 to Rs 37,950 per kg, supported by increased demand from industrial units and coin makers.

Increased buying by local jewellers to meet rising demand for ornaments drove gold prices, but a weak overseas trend kept the gains limited.

Globally, gold softened 0.14 per cent to USD 1,194.50 an ounce in Singapore as the dollar strengthened against major currencies amid expectations of a US Federal Reserve interest rate hike this month, eroding demand for the precious metals as a safe haven.

In the national capital, gold of 99.9 per cent and 99.5

per cent purity bounced Rs 200 each to Rs 31,550 and Rs 31,400 per 10 gram, respectively. The precious metal had lost Rs 160 in the previous two days.

Sovereign however ruled flat at Rs 24,500 per piece of eight gram.

Silver ready prices too were higher by Rs 175 to Rs 37,950 per kg and weekly-based delivery by Rs 160 to Rs

37,325 per kg.

Silver coins however continued to be traded at the

previous level of Rs 72,000 for buying and Rs 73,000 for

selling of 100 pieces.
