Globally, gold rose by 0.7 per cent to $1,326.70 an ounce and silver by 2.2 per cent to $19.36 an ounce in New York in yesterday’s trade.

Sovereign, however, held steady at Rs 24,300 per piece of eight grams in limited deals.

Silver ready surged by Rs 800 to Rs 45,900 per kg backed by increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers.
