Gold prices Monday bounced back by Rs 200 to Rs 32,250 per 10 grams at the bullion market on the back of positive global trend and fresh buying by local jewellers. Silver followed suit and recovered by Rs 350 to Rs 39,750 per kg due to increased offtake from industrial units and coin makers.
Traders attributed the rise in gold prices to a firm trend overseas as Asian stocks eased due to concerns about a potential decline in China's economic growth amid an ongoing trade war and signs of tighter monetary policy by the US Federal Reserve.
Globally, gold rose 0.53 per cent to USD 1,225 an ounce and silver by 0.48 per cent to USD 14.75 an ounce in Singapore Monday.
Besides, increased buying by local jewellers at domestic spot market to meet festive season demand, also fuelled the uptrend.
