After weeks of tremendous selling pressure, the yellow- metal broke its descending trend due to attractive low level buying in the face of a firming trend in overseas.

Jewellery stockists and retail buyers seized the opportunity to restock gold in anticipation that the demand will improve considerably in coming days ahead of peak festive season as well as wedding-related demand, a bullion dealer said.

Standard gold (99.5 purity) shot-up by Rs 425 to end at Rs 25,250 per 10 grams from Monday's closing level of Rs 24,825. Pure gold (99.9 purity) also jumped by a similar margin to conclude at Rs 25,400 per 10 grams as against Rs 24,975 previously. Elsewhere, silver continued its rallying momentum on the back of heavy speculative demand and also good industrial buying support.
