Gold gains for day 3

NEW DELHI: Gold prices Thursday gained for the third straight session by adding Rs 15 to Rs 31,365 per ten gram on sustained buying by stockists and retailers for the ongoing marriage season amid a firming global trend.
Silver also rose for the fourth day by gaining Rs 370 to Rs 48,250 per kg on increased offtake by jewellers and industrial units.
Traders said sustained buying by stockists and retailers for the ongoing marriage season mainly led an upward trend in precious metals.
Firming global trend, where gold and silver rose to 16-week high on speculation that weakening US growth and turmoil in Ukraine will boost demand for the precious metals as a haven, also supported the uptrend, they said.
