    Silver also recorded a significant gain of Rs 2,700 to Rs 37,000 per kg on increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers. Sentiment bolstered after gold surged by 3.69 per cent, its biggest gain since September 19, to USD 1,218.10 an ounce in New York yesterday, as rebound in crude price revived demand for the precious metal as stores of value, bullion traders said.

    Globally, silver also surged 7.3 per cent to USD 16.69 an ounce yesterday, the highest gain since September 2013. Besides, rising domestic demand from jewellers and retailers for the ongoing wedding season too influenced precious metal prices, they said. In Delhi, gold of 99.9 and 99.5 per cent purity zoomed up by Rs 840 each to Rs 27,040 and Rs 26,840 per ten grams respectively.
