New Delhi: Reversing its two-day losing streak, gold recovered by Rs 10 to Rs 30,850 per 10 grams, driven by a firm trend overseas amid scattered buying by local jewellers. Silver also strengthened by Rs 155 to 39,480 per kg on increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

Sentiment turned better after gold prices inched higher in global markets as the greenback softened, while investors awaited US economic growth data due later this week, traders said.
