Indian gold extended gains on Wednesday afternoon to hit another record high powered by strong overseas markets, with importers unwilling to stock the yellow metal ahead of festivals next week.
* COMEX gold for December delivery was 0.69% higher at USD 1,746.8 an ounce. A firm rupee limited the upside. The rupee plays an important role in determining the landed cost of the dollar-quoted yellow metal.
* The most-active gold contract for October delivery on the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) struck its peak of Rs 32,105 per 10 grams. At 0947 GMT it was up 0.44% at Rs 32,017.
* Buying is yet to pick up in full strength, said Harshad Ajmera, proprietor of JJ Gold House, a wholesaler in Kolkata.
* India, the world's biggest buyer of bullion, celebrates Ganesh Chaturthi next week and festivals will continue till November.
* Silver also rose more than one percent to hit another contract high.
* Silver for December delivery on the MCX was 1.05% higher at Rs 64,471 per kg, after hitting a record high of Rs 64,755.
