    Gold regains sheen on weaker dollar, Ukraine fears

    Gold futures for October 2014 contract, at MCX, is trading at Rs. 27,917 per 10 grams, up by 0.49 per cent, after opening at Rs. 27,824, against the previous closing price of Rs 27,780. It touched an intra-day high of Rs 27,934. (At 11:07 AM)
