Silver futures traded higher by 0.11 per cent at Rs 39,635 per kg Thursday after speculators raised bets, driven by a firm trend overseas.
Silver for delivery in March traded higher by Rs 43, or 0.11 per cent, at Rs 39,635 per kg in a business turnover of 17,247 lots at the Multi Commodity Exchange.
In a similar manner, the white metal to be delivered in May, too, rose by Rs 16, or 0.04 per cent, to Rs 40,152 per kg in 2,269 lots.
