Gold prices recovered today by Rs 350 to Rs 29,350 per 10 grams at the bullion market on increased buying by local jewellers even as the metal weakened overseas.
Silver also edged higher by Rs 125 to Rs 41,375 per kg on uptick in demand from industrial units and coin makers.
Traders attributed the recovery in gold prices to increased buying by local jewellers at the domestic spot market but a weak trend overseas capped the rise.
