Similarly, silver for delivery in December increased by Rs 343 to Rs 49,788 per Kg.

check.

The Fed will make a statement later today at the end of its two-day meeting.

Spot gold last traded up USD 1.70 or 0.13 percent at USD 1,347.320 an ounce, after hitting a session low of USD 1,339.14 earlier.
