Gold regained its sheen to trade Rs 195 higher at Rs 27,125 per ten gram at the bullion market today, taking positive cues from overseas market and fresh buying by jewellers.
Silver also recovered by Rs 250 to Rs 37,300 per kg on increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers.
The rebound in gold prices was mostly in tune with a firming trend in global market as dollar fell, adding to the appeal of the precious metal after the Fed signalled that the pace of policy tightening will be gradual.
Besides, fresh buying by domestic jewellers too influenced gold prices, they said.
Gold in Singapore, which normally sets price trend on the domestic front, climbed 0.2 per cent to USD 1,188.04 an ounce and silver by 0.5 per cent to USD 16.21 an ounce.
