New Delhi, Jan 15 Gold prices rallied Rs 256 to Rs 40,441 per 10 gram in the national capital on Wednesday, led by strong buying in global markets, according to HDFC Securities.

On Tuesday, the yellow metal had closed at Rs 40,185 per 10 gram.

“Spot gold for 24 Karat in Delhi rose by Rs 256 on strong buying in global gold prices amid US-China trade deal concerns,” HDFC Securities Senior Analyst (Commodities) Tapan Patel said.

In a statement on Tuesday, US officials said that the trade deal with China set to be signed on Wednesday does not include a deal to roll back tariffs imposed on most Chinese goods.
