Gold prices recovered by Rs. 210 to Rs. 30,250 per ten gram in the national capital on Tuesday on stockists buying for the wedding season despite weak global trend.

Silver followed suit and gained Rs. 230 to Rs. 42,830 per kg on increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

Traders said stockists buying for the ongoing marriage season mainly led the recovery in gold and silver prices.

They said depreciating rupee against the U.S. dollar which makes the import of precious metals costlier also influenced the sentiment.
