Gold surges by Rs 300 on high demand

New Delhi, April 11 - Gold prices surged by Rs 300 to Rs 31,850 per ten gram at the bullion market on persistent buying by local jewellers amid a firm global trend.

Silver followed suit and shot up by Rs 360 to Rs 39,760 per kg due to increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

Traders said sentiment remained upbeat on positive global cues as the dollar index hovered near two-week lows, with markets awaiting key US inflation data and minutes from the Federal Reserve's March meeting.

Globally, gold rose 0.40% to USD 1,344.40 an ounce and silver by 0.15% to USD 16.57 an ounce in Singapore.

Moreover, increased offtake by local jewellers to meet demand from retailers at domestic spot market, fuelled the uptrend, they said.
