Gold prices recovered smartly at the domestic bullion market here today on fresh buying by stockists and investors amid bullish global cues. Silver too rebounded by Rs 765 per kg following good speculative offtake and industrial demand. Standard gold (99.5 purity) climbed by Rs 145 to end at Rs 29,000 per 10 grams from last Friday's closing level of Rs 28,855. Pure gold (99.9 purity) also moved up by a similar margin to close at Rs 29,150 per 10 grams as compared to Rs 29,005 previously.

Globally, gold rose over 1 per cent, recovering from 9-1/2 month lows, as the US dollar extended losses after touching a near 14-year high last week. Spot gold had gained 0.92 percent to USD 1,193.80 an ounce in early European trade, after climbing as high as USD 1,197.54 earlier in the session.
