New Delhi: Gold prices regained Rs 30,000 level by rallying over Rs 1,000 to Rs 30,285 per 10 grams in futures trade early Friday as market participants enlarged their positions in tandem with a firming global trend.

Similarly, silver for delivery in September spurted by Rs 3,004 to Rs 49,577 per kg.

The yellow metal has gained for the last seven sessions out of eight, spurring rare inflows into the top gold exchange traded fund.
