    Both the precious metals, gold and silver, traded higher here today on fresh buying by stockists driven by a firming global trend. While gold rose by Rs 90 to Rs 30,100 per 10 grams, silver by Rs 175 to Rs 54,650 per kg on increased offtake by jewellery fabricators and industrial units. The trading sentiment improved as gold rose above USD 1,600 an ounce for the first time this month in overseas markets concerned over deepening euro-zone debt crisis and boosted haven demand.
