Gold drops? Huh? It's not that surprising:
1) Gold is being used as a source of funds by traders who either need cash to cover margin calls, or are simply going to cash.
2) gold will not do well in a potentially deflationary environment. This happened before: in the worst part of 2008, when the S&P 500 dropped nearly 500 points in a matter of weeks, gold dropped from over $900 to $700.
