NEW YORK â¿¿ The price of gold drops more than $50 an ounce on an ugly day throughout the financial markets. Driven partly by fear about the world economy, gold had a remarkable run in the three years after the 2008 financial crisis, doubling in price and almost hitting $1,900 an ounce. Now the price has dropped close to $1,600, and the rush may be over. By Business Writers Bernard Condon and Matthew Craft.
