    On Wednesday, markets returned to action and December gold prices rose to a week high on the Comex of $1,720.40.

    But Indians don't stay away from gold for long - especially ahead of festival season.

    Festival season in India, which includes Diwali and Dhanteras, starts in November. Weddings will also take place during this period with gold jewelry included in dowries.
