New Delhi: Gold prices recovered by Rs 70 to Rs 27,300 per ten grammes at the bullion market today on buying by jewellers and retailers to meet wedding season demand as well as better global trend. Silver, however, held steady at Rs 37,850 per kg on little support from industrial units and coin makers.
Traders said fresh buying by jewellers to meet ongoing wedding session demand and a firming global trend mainly pushed up gold prices.

On the other hand, silver ready held steady at Rs 37,850 per kg, while weekly-based delivery declined by Rs 200 to Rs 37,815 per kg owing to lack of buying support.
