Gold rose marginally by Rs 5 to Rs 29,290 per 10 grams, rising for the third straight day at the bullion market today, tracking a firming global trend amid scattered buying by jewellers.

However, silver shed Rs 50 at Rs 37,200 per kg on reduced offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

Bullion traders said a firming global trend where gold rose for a fourth day to head for the biggest monthly advance in four years and buying by jewellers at domestic markets, mainly influenced sentiments.
